I have big dreams for next year and the one is to grow a better garden. I spent some time this year starting plants from seed but my raised beds didn't get set up until well after most things should have been transferred outside. The only plant that survived from my seedlings were jalapeños. All six seedlings lived and thrived in my raised beds. They fought off the weeds and produced an abundance of fruit. I have so many jalapeños I don't even know what to do with them. I am planning meals around them. Last night I made a jalapeño based salsa for enchiladas and have enough to last for months. I wonder if salsa is freezable? I am currently making a jalapeño based marinade for the weekend. Then for tonight I am planning to make jalapeño poppers for book club appetizers. I might be over them real soon. Hopefully not because I have more on the plants, like a lot more.
