My Hot Peppers Are Cool!

A week ago, I posted a picture of a bucket full of jalapeños that Sylvia had picked.  There is still one plant in the garden that is bearing  jalapeños.  Today, I captured this image to show that we will be harvesting peppers in November.  Can you believe it?


We have preserved what we don’t eat fresh by dehydrating and freezing.  Sylvia just brought home the supplies so we can prepare poppers and put them in the freezer.  (For poppers, she removes the pepper core, stuffs it with cream cheese and cheddar and wraps in bacon.)  That way when we have a desire for poppers, we can take them from the freezer and pop them into the oven.  At least that’s our theory.


Sylvia also planted giant garlic for next year.  In the process she discovered some unharvested corms that have started growing and will coming up next spring.  When it comes to garlic, I say the more the better.

We have been busy this past week finishing our window project.  Now, we are now about 99.5% completed.  Best of all, we have finished all of the difficult parts.

  1. Ha, I didn’t know about your window project, but getting the hard stuff done makes the rest far more enjoyable. 🙂 That’s a nice looking pepper producer you’ve got there!

  2. Those poppers sound really good. It’s always a good idea to have “goodies” stored in the freezer!! I manage to freeze containers of my homemade vegetable soup. A large pot of this soup provides my son and self with 4 meals.

    • It has been that kind of year. Lots of rain and the fall has been on the mild side. Typical first frost for around here is October 20.
