I’m loving the timing that I am looking for getting some purple bell pepper seeds and so got to looking to see if any among the 10 portraits of fruits and vegetables in the new booklet of 20 stamps capturing “the classic beauty of still-life paintings” in a booklet.

  • Carrots,
  • Lemons,
  • Blueberries,
  • Red and green grapes,
  • Lettuces,
  • Strawberries,
  • Eggplants, and
  • Figs.”

Also, it shares how to go about ordering the First-Day-Of-Issue postmark and First-Day Covers, available at this link.

The Fruits and Vegetables Forever First Class Stamps booklet of 20 is $11.00 and available for pre-ordering at Postal Store #682704 online.

In search of Purple Bell Peppers

The discovery of Purple Bell Peppers came up while in conversation earlier this week about growing my red bell peppers. I was sharing they are still green and not red yet -which I’m apparently to be patient and give them time! What a joyous discovery to find out, as a “by the way, you know they do come in purple” to hear!
