Chile Pepper Season

Chile Pepper Season

10 comments

Just before it frosted in my Maryland zone 7 garden, we harvested all of the chiles that were mature--and some that were still green. Many chiles were snipped from the plants into buckets, however, some plants covered with small chiles were just pulled up by the roots and hung to dry. Been processing them by various methods and have saved some out in the refrigerator to bring to the IHA Conference in Florida next week.

Right now my beebalms, also known as monarda are ablaze with color in the garden. Their flowers have an inimitable shaggy-headed appearance which attract all sorts of pollinators. If you don't have any monardas in your garden, now is the time to plant them. They are like brightly colored firecrackers in the garden, bursting with bloom just in time for the Fourth of July.
