protecting budding green peppers

Post  cmykbaby on 10/8/2012, 11:43 pm

Hi,
I'm new here. I am Dolores. I have been gardening for4 years. I have some green pepper plants in my garden. One has just put out a bunch of new peppers. I live in Chicago near the lake so it hasn't frozen here yet. Is there anything I can do in case we get a frost to keep them going?

Hi there, at this point of the year, if you want peppers, I would suggest digging the plant out of the garden, pot it up and bring it into the house. I just did this with one of my Serrano pepper plants.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
