Harvesting the last of the peppers before the cold snap…


Thanks Jane!

Thanks Jane!

To putting Jane in at night.  From summer to winter in one fell swoop.

This is the last of the peppers.  It’s official now, Jane is sleeping in and I moved the cows a little closer today to ride out the storm.  Freezing rain is the prediction, so closer is definitely better.

    We went from tee shirts Friday to sweatshirts Saturday to jackets Sunday to 16.5 inches of snow Monday!

    Are you getting the wind gusts off the Columbia River? And they are now saying snow tomorrow, as well as freezing rain! We are Woodburn, hoping to miss the snow part, but we will see, gonna snuggle in and sit it out! Stay warm!

      We can hear it as it goes by, luckily we’re in a protected spot! I’m thinking freezing rain here or maybe a little snow 😦

    Thinking of you. We’ve already done the quick whizz round, winter’s coming chores and had a week of below freezing, so I sympathise. Now it has warmer, but maybe another round of winter flexing its muscles after the weekend.

    I just pulled in a bunch of peppers, too! And tomatoes. I chopped down the whole plants and just stuck them in a big vase in the living room so I can pick peppers whenever. It looks very festive!…well, it did before the heater dried the leaves out 🙂 We were in T-shirts Monday and went straight to earmuffs and ski coats! This is the first hard freeze in early November in my memory…come on, Texas, we don’t do that!

      Your comment reminded me that peppers can be planted into pots and brought indoors. We did that with some peppers last year and then had early peppers from those plants the following year. Wished I had remembered to do that this year. We did think about it for the chilli peppers, but then again they hadn’t produced anything by the time they needed to be pulled up. They are sat on my windowsill in my living room now.

    Nice healthy looking peppers. I guess you harvested them in time before the snowstorm.
