Elemental marriage: earth, sun, water

First 2020 chile pepper harvest.

The three stubby fruits are a New Mexican heirloom Sandia, reputed to have mild heat.

The long thinner fruit at the back, is a garden salsa hybrid again mild to hot.

Because the plants are very young, I picked these fruits early to allow the plants to strengthen and put more resources into fruiting well through season rather than burning out in the celebration of our current hot spell and my helicopter parenting which manifests in watering.

Later in season I will allow the fruit to grow bigger before harvest. These fruits are young so might be on the milder side on the heat continuum. Peppers typically get hotter with hot weather.
