Fruit and Vegetable

I take a green bell pepper to school almost every day. Most days, I don’t eat it for lunch. Instead I eat it right after school. I tear it open on my way to my truck, then eat it while I’m driving home.

When I’m pulling the pepper apart, I need to throw the core and seeds somewhere. I usually take it to the weeds growing along the edge of our property. A while back, I was surprised to see a passion fruit vine growing there. I wondered if it was originally just a volunteer from a fruit someone threw there.

However it got there, it’s a full-grown, blooming and fruiting vine. Cool! The flowers have only a faint scent. I have not tried the fruits.

There is a small green passion fruit just left of center at the top of the photo.

    Thank you for pointing out where the fruit is. I would have missed it otherwise. Will it be joined by a pepper plant soon?

    I like the visual of you tearing open a pepper as you end the school day. Maybe I’d feel better if I demolished something.
