Well, it’s that time of year again. Actually, it’s long past that usual time of year in my region. Given the higher than average temperatures for October, my pepper season lasted almost a full month longer than is typical. But, inevitably, it’s done. With lows in the 20s coming up the next few days, I spent a beautiful weekend afternoon taking down the last of my plants and cleaning up beds and pots.

It’s always a bittersweet event, but it was a bountiful season and I more than harvested enough peppers to last me well into next year. So, I can’t complain. all that much. There are still plenty of pepper reviews to be published on the site and the annual “Lessons Learned” post that I need to craft, so the site will still be active as we approach planning for the 2022 season.

I hope everyone else had a great and fiery season – as we look at the final harvest above. Here’s to planning for 2022!
