Holy Hot Peppers.

Today's heirloom hot pepper harvest--the last for the season.

For a family that doesn't eat a lot of spicy food, I think...perhaps...I should plant fewer hot pepper plants next year. Three gallon-sized bags of peppers went to college with Tyler and Val. One gallon is heading to a friend's home tomorrow. One small bag joined its friends in our freezer. Because we've already processed a whole lot of hot peppers, I decided it was time to end the hot pepper season in our garden. 

It's time to plant garlic, and I need a free bed.

So, ¡adiĆ³s, hot peppers. Buon giorno, beautiful garlic.

I will never complain about too much garlic.

  1. WOW! That's a lot of peppers! You can always sell some to the Walkers! Brian dehydrates them and makes pepper flakes!

    1. Jess, next year, you can come over and pick peppers all you want!

    1. Janet, I think we're peppered-out. Ty made hot sauce, and we've freezed, dehydrated, pickled, and crushed peppers. Honestly, since we have a low tolerance for too much heat, I'll be surprised if we use all that we have. But next year--maybe!
