Peppers!!! The race to ripen before frost
Threat of frost last night - not right where I am but close. I bumbled around in the dark moving my laden fragile pepper plants closer to the house (I have been known to drag 10-12 7 gallon pots into my little house in a pinch. I harvested the reddest ones. Plans for roasted peppers, a batch of salsa and maybe chili oil tomorrow. I still have apples and basil piled on my work surface to deal with first. This is less than a quarter of the Carmens and Flaming Flares. I have a ton of Shishitos, some Jalepeno and a few miscellaneous mostly hot peppers coming along.
Note to self - checking to see how hot the tiny Thai peppers are right before breakfast isn’t my brightest idea. Slow burn.
