The garden is still growing strong. Just picked a bunch of peppers (and tomatos, okra, and eggplant).

Jalapeno, Serrano, Tobasco, Poblano and Habenero peppers -



On the smoker -



Gonna dehydrate and grind em up to make some more kick-a$$ 'dust' Laughing

Dang, those look good. I am truly envious (can't grow 'em due to my severely brown thumb) - thinking about getting a grow light and giving it a try next year but I'm not sure if my brown thumb will prevail.

Good work on those peppers!

Southern Oregon sure 't'ain't Georgia. bit before sun down was out in the front yard and looked west and south. Huge wall of clouds moving over the mountains dumping snow.

Too warm at my level to be a bother .... but soon?

SmokeHound, check with Whitey he is up on the whole black light growing I here. Laughing

BUGSnBBQ, congrats on a fine crop I tilled our garden under in preparation of fall greens. The drought and triple digits made short work of gardens around here. The farmers markets actually shut down months earlier this year.

SmokeHound - Thanks!

fredaevans - SNOW??? Already? Y'all can keep that stuff Laughing Laughing . We get 6 inches around here and the whole state shuts down Rolling Eyes

plbass - I cut them in half, smoke for 2-3 hours around 200-225, put in a dehydrator for 8-12 hours, and then grind in a coffee grinder.

k.a.m - Thanks! I'm getting ready to till up part of the garden for fall stuff, too. We're usually into full-on fall planting by now, but I just can't get up the nerve to pull up producing plants! Laughing

Canadian Bacon - Thanks! You're the one that gave me the inspiration to smoke, dry, and grind some peppers this year. This stuff has come out amazing! Myself and my chili-head wife thank you! Laughing Laughing

No kidding? I didn't know it had to be red or that there was even such a thing as a red Jalapeno. I don't do much in the way of peppers, with my stomach in the condition that it is, hot/spicy peppers are a seriously bad thing. I would like to try to do a Chipotle for freinds/family. Is there anything special that has to be done? Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks. Sorry if my questions were considered a hijack. I figured it was all about peppers so it was okay to ask.

HFG - Thanks! It's been a (mostly) excellent year for the garden. By my count we have picked 128 Habeneros, and still have 20-30 more getting ripe - from ONE plant! Un-freaking-believable. Gonna save some seeds from this genetic freak for next year Laughing .

RollinontheRvr - Hijacks are fine with me, as long as I'm not on an airplane Shocked Laughing

jeepdad - Thanks! That's a small portion of the peppers we harvested this year. We have 3 pint jars full of smoked/dried/ground peppers, so far. The land has been very good to us this year.

erniesshop - That sucks Crying or Very sad

Thanks y'all for looking! I'm currently doing a science experiment with these dried peppers, making hot sauce. We'll see how it goes and if I don't F it up, I'll post a recipe and pics.

That's a fantastic haul! Especially for early October. We were out of town unexpectedly for 10 days, just got back on sunday the 9th. Heard we had a freeze and expected my garden to be dead when we got home. Went out and picked a bunch of cherry tomatoes, quite a few 1-2lb tomatoes and about 20-25 jalapenos and cayenne's as well as a sweet or two.

Those look good. Be sure to let us know how the science experiment goes. (Good Luck) I'm still getting tons of peppers from my garden as well. I have my own science experiment going right now with some sauce, making my first fermented sauce, it's supposed to be ready to finish tomorrow.
