Late Season Peppers

November 23, 2016

Tags: peppers, gardening

Picked the last of the fall peppers this afternoon. Yeah, they're small - I don't fertilize after mid-summer - but they're at their tastiest this time of year. Around mid-October, I snip off all the smaller peppers that won't have time to mature, prune unproductive branches, and hope for the best for the remaining peppers. Time to clean up and mulch this last bed and let the garden sleep until February onion planting.
