Picked another batch of peppers from the garden. My wife cuts them up & freezes so that we can use all year long. She makes the best damn risotto using these sweet peppers. I like to use them on baked salmon wrapped in foil.
I think these peppers would run about $1 apiece in the store.
I have 6 large sweet pepper plants that are loaded with large green peppers. But I prefer ripe red peppers. For some reason these peppers are not getting ripe. We had a frost last nite and another predicted tonite. I may not get my planned harvest of red peppers this year.
I also experimented with potato towers this year. My 2 towers planted with yukon golds were a great sucess. But my sweet potato tower experiment died an early death last nite in the frost. The plants are dead and the tubers are only 1 inch in diameter. It appears that our growing season is just too short. Next year I will plant this 3rd tower with red potatoes.
I'm not sexist.

Love the pepper picture
Too tired from silly chores to go and take pics but we have Jalapenos, Red, Yellow and Orange Lunchbox Peppers, Green and Red Peppers, Mild and Hot Banana Peppers and Tobasco Peppers canned, in the freezer and some still on the vine.
Habaneros from last year are still in the freezer and they haunt me!
Just poured a big glass of Chardonnay on the rocks and settling in to listen to some music. Got some Lynard Skynard fixin' to rock...Turn it UP!

I picklel, freeze, or dry them. Lots go into pasta sauce.
I cover tender $#!t up here , we have 3 days of frost(9/18-9-21 then warmer).
Last 10 years "killing" frost was mid October, it comes early though. Don't bet house on it . Seen it before now. Loose what's out.
There has been killing frost here 9/20 or sooner, it's often a MONTH later, don't bet on that
Lots of things I love about living in the deep south, but a long growing season has to be near the top... especially as a prepper.
I don't grow any hot peppers as my wife can't tolerate them in the least. So I just grow bell peppers & Marconi. Speaking of Marconi peppers, if you have never had hickory smoked Marconi peppers... you are missing out. They are so damn flavorful & really go well with many dishes such as red beans & rice. I get mine from Sparkling River. They have all sorts of pepper product. Their smoked habanero looks good but real hot.

I like Corno de Toro, a bulls horn shaped sweet pepper. I let em ripen to red and then stuff them with Uncle Charlies sausage. Some sweet and some hot italian sausage. Vaccum pack and freeze. I usually harvest and freeze enough to last me all year.
Dayum! Nice haul. My pepper plant didn't produce this year. Maybe next.
First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.
Nothing? Did you grow the plant from seed that you collected or store bought seed? What are the particulars of this?
