Daniel, I like the looks of the bonsai pepper plant. However, I'm not a big pepper fan. I think it goes back to when I was a kid and was forced to eat a stuffed green pepper. It was awful. I'm a little better now--at least I try. I like 'em dehydrated.

Ordered the following pepper varieties - this was Burpee.  I'm not happy with their website - I guess Im just used to them.  Their prices seem higher than ever too.

Hot Pepper Sweet Thing Hybrid

Pepper Sweet Banana

Pepper Sweet Nikita Hybrid

I have some of last year's packets too. Wanted some not as hot - couldn't eat some of what I grew this year, too hot!  I also have one in container in sunroom from last year, yet another experiment.

Some people bonsai their peppers.  Looks like a lot of fun.

Chicken tractor ideas - there are zillions.  Could be a good winter project.  The biggest challenge is making one that is easy to move.  I think wheels on both ends would be a good idea.  Bigger wheels - wagon or small bike wheels, light and easy to move - might work.

I'm about to order some pepper seeds.  Last year I started some at xmas - long time to grow inside, but it was a peaceful activity and I enjoyed it.

Weather this cold doesn't usually come until January in Pocatello.  It is warmer this week, but the winds make the wind-chill nasty.

What a cold, miserable November. I usually can harvest small brocolli heads up to Thanksgiving. Kale and chard, too. Not this year. Boo hiss. Time to raid the freezer.

Cool, Patricia! I liked when your husband (I assume!) poked his head up. That's quite a hobby.

Spud, if your ground hasn't frozen yet, you might be able to harvest onions. I'm still getting the green tops.

Sounds like a well-stocked root cellar Randy.  I'm jealous.

I wonder if I could find some edible onions in the ground this time of year.

Comment by Randall Smith on November 23, 2014 at 7:21am

The ground thawed out enough for me to dig up all my carrots. Talk about a mixed bag in size. Some huge, others teeny. The worms didn't get to them. I'll stick them in a bucket of sand and add them to my root cellar. Just another addition to my stash of potatoes, squash, onions, and fruit (apples and pears). If the "apocalypse" arrives, I'm all set!

Arid Lands Permaculture, start at 5:00 to learn about fungus and permaculture.

Joan, yes! same grinder in our house and used for a variety of things.

Randall, :) we were suppose to have a freeze, but my patio thermometer read 40F this a.m.  5" of snow! Nice snowmen?

Daniel, yes, I too like the re-cycling ideas. I went to local grocery and got cardboard to create walkways, but still need more. Your idea will work too.
