Our indoor harvest

I harvested these habaneros on the enclosed front porch yesterday.  I mean my "greenhouse".  Haha.  I can't believe I actually extended the plant's life and we are still reaping the benefits.  I must say however that a lot of the pepper plant's leaves dropped, I don't think it liked being moved.  You can see the plant behind my hand. Though, I'm glad I dug out those plants, let's hope they survive the winter.

See what other's are harvesting on Daphne's Dandelions.

  2. I hope your habaneros will survive through the winter for you. I thought ours did not survive through the winter outdoors but some plant managed to survive and now in end spring has bear some fruits for us. I like the colours of your habaneros.

  4. Any harvest is a harvest, I always say! I have no experience with digging up peppers, but it works with many herbs. I dug up some oregano that isn't hardy, and it's happy in a pot over winter. Hope your pepper does as well!

  7. More power to you for thinking to move your peppers inside the porch! Maybe I should say, More peppers to you...
    Good luck with them!

  9. Neat! I don't think I've seen anyone relocate a pepper before but I'm glad to know it can work. Maybe after a little time to adjust it will stop losing leaves. Those peppers are gorgeous!

  10. I had to laugh at your "greenhouse", mine is the living room! I've got 2 mature pepper plants that have been in pots from day one so they were easy to move. And I've got a dozen very late started (or is that extra early) pepper plants in gallon pots to round things out. Are you able to actually eat those monstrously hot habaneros? I'm in awe...

  11. I hope it lives for you. I pulled up a pepper plant to bring indoors one year. But just to ripen the seeds I wanted to collect. Then I put it in the compost. I've never tried overwintering any plants from the garden.

  12. Even if the plant does not survive the move - you managed to eek out pepper harvests into late November which is worth the effort in and of itself! I do know many people successfully overwinter their pepper plants and I have thought about trying to do that as well. Unfortunately, my house does not have a good sunny spot for growing indoor plants other than low light lovers so I have gone no further than casually thinking about it.

  13. Great harvest. It will be interesting to see how long the plants survive indoors.

  14. Lovely colors. I bet it went into a bit of shock and comes back nicely.
