Lo and behold I was out inspecting my garden this evening and there is a PEPPER. A beautiful green bell pepper measuring about 1.5x1.5 inches. My question is, when do I pick it? How fast will it grow now?

I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited about this. I've never had a vege garden before and when I lost my baby in January, I buried it out back where my garden was to be and I call it baby's garden and this is my beautiful memorial. So the first fruits of my labor (and grief) have arrived and this is really special to me.

Thanks for listening!

How awesome! I share your excitement. I grew 10 or 12 string beans this year and you'd have thought I invented gardening I was so thrilled! I think this is a great way to pay tribute to your dear babe. Almost everyone here knows more about gardening than I do, but my basic answer would be, pick it when it looks ready and you are ready to use it. Also, keep a sharp eye out for snails and other garden snackers. They have been waiting for this too!
