nature's wonders

I mentioned a few months ago that I was growing a garden.  It was my first garden, and I'd say it didn't go horribly.  Sure, the strawberries died before producing any fruit.  Yes, my pumpkin plant got eaten up by mites and mold.  But I did manage to get one miniature pumpkin to grow...

and this...

This little freak of nature is a green pepper...and a red pepper...all rolled into one.  It has yet to fully ripen on one side, which makes me smile.  The other thing that makes me smile?  It's about the size of a walnut.  :-)

I think next year I'll be asking you all for a bit more gardening advice.

As exciting as that little pepper is, I'm about to go off and experience even more amazing wonders of New Zealand!  I leave in a few hours and will be there for 3 weeks!!!  I'm incredibly excited, and I can't wait to share all about it when I return.  Until then, though, there will still be plenty to check out here at Delightful Country Cookin'.  I've got a few scheduled posts of my own as well as some great guest posts lined up for you.  See you in a few weeks!
