My Dad has multiple gardens around my home town. One of the gardens he facilitates is the farm to school garden at the high school. He had additional tomato and banana pepper plants this year.

I wish I could have my own garden, but I currently have a patio garden. My apartment sits in direct sunlight for most of the day. This is beneficial for banana peppers. Being gluten-free I don’t every order fried foods at a restaurant.Today, I decided it was time for gluten-free fried banana peppers.
