Red peppers finish out the season in my family room.

Plants in pots offer a longer growing season

Flurries are flying side ways from gusts of wind out of the west. I am perfectly content to stay inside and watch the advance of winter from the comfort of my family room.

Technically, my vegetable garden is over for the year but I planted some of my pepper plants in pots this summer and brought them indoors to finish their growing season. I have harvested a couple red peppers and there are still a lot of little peppers yet.

I pulled herb plants from my mother's garden and brought them indoors to continue growing. I has been so wonderful to cook with fresh herbs .
