There’s just something about these colors that I love. They’re so warm and happy! The late day sunlight in the kitchen is a welcome a sign of spring, as is the fact that the last of the peppers germinated while we were gone. I love it when some of the distinct characteristics of the different varieties start to show through, even at this early stage, like subtle differences in shades of green and size. By far, my favorite is Black Hungarian; the purple is so deep it almost looks black at times.
