Shhhhhhh...(free bell peppers)...

SOUTH VALLEY BIKE TRAIL--Last week while riding on the south bosque trail Bob and I noticed that what seemed like a whole field of bell peppers had been plowed under just south of the Bueno Foods canning plant. We went up on the ditch and went into the field. Sure enough...along with sandhill cranes, lots of bell peppers--some buried, some on top of the ground. Enlarge the picture to get a better idea. Bob and I each got a bag full.

This was last week. Maybe they are a little soft by now, but they were real fresh a week ago. Oh...I don't know that this kind of "gleaning" is legal, but it certainly is moral in my book. Those peppers are headed into oblivion otherwise.
