I do not have a green thumb. But I do love to grow things. . .I am just not successful at it with one exception. I can grow jalapenos. This is the third or fourth really good picking of our pepper plants. I washed and dried them and then froze them whole. I use them in homemade salsa, crockpot beans, macaroni and cheese, all kinds of mexican dishes and even when I roast a chicken.
