I've been so amazed with our fall harvests. The bell peppers are still producing even though it's been in the 50s all week. Nights drop down to the 40s. But, we are still harvesting bell peppers, and I also harvested for the first time some mustard greens. Not much, since the bugs keep eating all the leaves, but I was able to harvest a handful of leaves that weren't eaten up. They are really peppery tasting. I don't know how much longer before our first frost hits and kills off the rest of the vegetable plants so I have to savor the harvests while I can.
giant habanero. It just amazes me how many little peppers I harvested from this plant. Before I brought the plant inside, I harvested 24 habaneros. Just amazing! The pole beans are still producing like mad and I picked my first fall radish. Nice! And check this out, when I was clearing the tomato plants to put in the compost, I found an heirloom tomato growing! How about that??
giant plant in my wheelbarrow. LOL. (so embarassing) I shouted to her from across the street, "hey Liz, do you like hot peppers?" She said yes, so I unloaded a dozen habaneros into her hands. Score. One of the coolest thing about habaneros is that even though I picked these peppers when they were green, 3 days later they turned colors!! From one plant, you can get orange, yellow and red peppers. So awesome!! Does anyone know, can you freeze these whole?
