We have no frost expected in the long-term forecast, but it's been mostly a cold, gloomy week. Peppers and tomatoes are not really ripening. So I'm making an effort to gradually harvest what I can, and if we don't need it, I'll just let it take its course.
First up are the ornamental/edible hot peppers I grew. They were completely loaded with ripe fruit.

I took most of the Jimmy Nardello's peppers, not red-ripe but still useful.
|Generic cayenne pepper
Okay, I promise, no more hot sauce.
I harvested the last of the zucchini. The plants were in bad shape from powdery mildew, but were still trying to make fruit. I think the cold weather has reduced the pollinator activity, so no point in keeping the plants. I removed them.

|Turnips and maybe a rutabaga

That's all for this week. Thanks for reading, and thanks once again to Dave at HappyAcres.blog for hosting Harvest Monday.
