Back in August, I was lamenting the lack of bell peppers on my pepper plants – “Got Peppers?”

So, I got out my Epsom salts (which is made up of magnesium sulfate) and water.  I added 2 tablespoons of Epsom salts around each pepper plant and watered it in well.

So fast forward a few weeks and guess what!?

 
 Just look at all of them!


 I’ve already picked some to use in my Mexican Rice recipe that I will be making for dinner tonight!

Thank you all who took the time to share your stories of kids and the funny things they do.  Gracie is doing much better since the doctor extracted the plastic fork tine from her nose.  BUT, I did have to stop her from carrying a plastic fork the next day 😉
