A little bit ago I visited Kevin Malon’s field of peppers at Rock’s Farm and Garden (located at 10935 Route 306, Kirkland, Ohio 44026, did you know the 90 East has an exit for Route 306? I sure as heck didn’t). I promised to have an update for when his Open Fields would be and well, here it is.
Starting this Saturday and Sunday (and continuing until some time around November) from 10AM to 5PM you can stop by and pick as much peppers as your refrigerator (or dehydrator) can hold. At $3 a pound (for most types) it’s practically a steal! Kevin (and helper Matthew Barris) will also have Bhut Jolokias for sale, but you have to ask for them…they are in very high demand this year. Be sure to ask to see his 13 year old Tepin plant, it’s an amazing sight to behold.
I actually took my chili-head in training, Eric Chem, over to check out the fields last week. Here’s some pics for everyone to enjoy.
