Harvest Monday: October 31, 2016
Happy harvest Monday, happy Halloween (whatever happened to spelling it Hallowe'en) and happy b-day to my brother! What a day. I arrived home around 4am last night from a visit to my family in BC ... got back to my car after the flight and my battery was dead so waited for the auto club to give me a boost.
I'm pretty much sleeping the day away but popped out to the greenhouse (thanks Glen for watering while I was away!) and picked the last of the peppers. These are definitely the last, as the plants all died. The greenhouse is not heated and there is a small gap under the door (need to do something about that) so when the temperature drops below freezing, the plants die. So the plants were dead, but the peppers were totally fine still, although not as mature as they should be.
This is 4 pounds of peppers, mostly Feher Ozon (along the top). Also included in the harvest (sort of left to right, bottom) are a few jalapenos, Hungarian Hot Wax, King of the North, Gypsy and Super Red Pimiento.
Once I get myself caught up after the holiday, I look forward to seeing what everyone else has been doing the past couple of weeks. Linking in here to Harvest Monday hosted by Our Happy Acres.
