A few green bell peppers harvested October 24, 2010.
It's late in the year for these, but it seems they are not done yet.

Great idea Ken! But, the maters are long done.

All that is left is some bell peppers, and some banana peppers.

I bought the bell pepper plants early in the Spring, from an Amish lady. She says they are all from heirloom seeds. There was excessive rain in the Spring, and the garden was flooded. The growth of the peppers was stunted all summer long. So, now they are producing in late October. It's just so strange.

I did consider tilling them under... but, they didn't die. They just stayed small all summer long. It's just strange. I never saw anything like it.
Having them start growing again is new to me. I guess I'm not used to the climate here yet?

Temps went below freezing last night.

I think I'm gonna have to pick the last the the peppers today.

Still I'm grateful for what I got. They would've been done long ago, if I were up north. :thThumbsU
