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.

Around here if you can keep the peppers and tomatoes alive through the summer they will start producing again when the extreme heat stops. They are all I had for a summer garden this year. The stink bugs were so bad, I had so many other things to do, I let them go. The tomatoes died. Somehow the peppers survived. I think being covered with grass protected them from the heat. I pulled the grass, fertilized and watered them and they are doing well. I picked 8 Sunday.
Nice for November that far north. We had a heavy frost here Friday morning. My raised garden is close enough to the trees that it was protected. Peppers and tomatoes are doing fine.
