12" of snow on the ground with above freezing for two or three hours midday each day. 

Neighbor's horse came over to browse in the meadow.

We have had seveal days of snow with thawing midday, leaving us with heavy snow topped with fluff. We now have 12" of snow on the ground. Who knows how much melted away during the daily thaws. 

Our neighbor's horse came over this morning eating his way across the meadow.

Black seems to block light enough so the herbs retain colour & the flavour is very good.

Patricia, why black?  Heat transfer?

Sounds good Daniel.

I like to dry several things, & have done really well with drying herbs in black cotton towels.

Spud, if you are not crazy about too much heat in your peppers, there are some modn varieties that are much milder.  I like lots of heat, but needed to tone it down a little recently after overdoing jalapenos and my stomach wasnt happy.  The jalapenos here at fred meyer were too mild for me, but home grown were very hot.

Patricia, we string up the peppers and let them dry.  Works well here.  Im hoping I can keep a couple pepoer plants going in the sunroom.  I read that is a way to get bigger and earlier crop if they survive indoor conditions.

The flavours are really nice Spud.

Nice looking pepper, Daniel.  I've never cooked with them and so don't grow them.  I've been thinking lately that I should try cooking with some.

How do you keep the peppers through the winter, Daniel? Cooked, frozen, dried......
