An early pepper harvest

A pepper harvest in late June is a rarity for California. Unlike the east cost or the mid west that is experiencing a heat wave, temperatures in the bay area are still not in the upper 70's and occasionally in the low 80s.

Last winter, I dug out some of the pepper plants from my raised beds and moved them into 5 gallon pots and brought them under the porch (not even indoors). They survived the mild winter and have done fabulously well after being replanted in spring. They are yielding close to 2lbs every few days. Needless to say we are sharing the love with friends and family.
