Happy Labor Day from Eight Gate Farm. The "first harvests" are slowing down, understandably, but we are still getting a few.
I picked the first red-ripe Hungarian Cheese peppers. While technically a stuffing pepper, their thick walls make them ideal for drying and making paprika, which is what we will do.

I also took the entire crops of two different onions. The first is "Talon," a hybrid yellow onion that I have had success with for several years, and stores very well. Some were very large.

The second is "Barolo," a hybrid red onion. It's the first time I've grown it. Some are also very large. I hope it's another one that stores well.

Shown together, they make a gratifying display.
