As promised from last post, I wanted to share our sweet pepper progress. We have two varieties, one that are long cylindrical-ish shape and the other round tomato shape. I'm pretty sure I only had one pack of seeds, so imagine my surprise when two different types appeared. I had no idea peppers grew on short plants like this (they can't be more than 3 feet tall... probably closer to 2 feet). Anyway, before I harvested them, I thought I'd show you our bounty.
We also hosted a young honeymooning couple, Monica and Brandon, from Idaho. They were super nice. Here they are showing off their catch. Monica did particularly well, catching a whopper... the biggest fish so far this year.
And here's a pic of our backyard after a light shower. This is what we wake up to every morning... pretty nice, eh?

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
