Peppers

Brought in the last of the peppers yesterday since we’re now having freezing nights. We’re drying them in various places around the house, including beneath the spice cabinet.

  1. You’ve obviously had a much better summer than we’ve had in the PNW.

    I haven’t managed to get a ripe pepper yet, and I’ve had more green tomatoes for dinner than red ones.

    Of course, the lows haven’t reached anywhere near freezing yet.

  2. We had a weird summer — long hot dry spells interrupted by days of heavy rain. Worked for the peppers. But I don’t even try tomatoes down here in the woods. Too much shade & too short a growing season.
