plants due to the cold getting to them. I picked a couple of bell peppers and about 25 banana peppers off those 2 plants on January 3 because I thought they would get frozen that night but they didn't die until this week. They were still blooming and had several tiny peppers on them when the cold finally got to them - won't be long until I can plant more.
I recently read that pepper plants are actually perennials, just not freeze hardy. Supposedly you can dig them up and put in a large pot to over winter them in garage or somewhere they won't freeze. Then replant in spring for a major headstart on production.
My only hope for a green thumb is when I use green paint.
Sure glad my wife LOVES to cook. She went out of town for a couple weeks when the kids were young, and they asked her what were they going to eat while she was gone. She told them I would feed them. They all said “You know the only thing we’ll get is food you microwave or pour milk over, right?”
I told them you do neither to a bowl of ice cream, so they let her take the trip…..
