I picked this pepper from our fire escape garden just before the snows hit. I left it to ripen on the vine, just to see what would happen. It turned out to be a strikingly beautiful, fragrant, and delicious orange pepper!
Our tomatoes produced right up to the first snow. Our geraniums and nasturtiums lasted until then as well. Most of our herbs have survived the snows: sage, rosemary, parsley, thyme, catnip, and oregano.
And… surprise! I brought in the pepper plant, to see if I could overwinter it indoors. So far, it has survived the shock of coming into a warmer, drier, and darker place. I wouldn’t say it is as happy as it was outside, but it is still alive. We shall see!
