Pepper harvest winds down in southern Utah

Did some harvesting at Wilma's on Sunday, after the first hard frost earlier in the week. At this point in the season there are usually plenty of green peppers that must be separated from the ripe ones and placed in sunny southern windowsills for further ripening. The mature peppers will be chopped and sun dried immediately.

I also procured a large haul of basil that has been laboriously plucked and placed on elevated screens for drying. My home smells like a basil scented Airwick Solid.

Saw some local peaches at the Springdale Fruit Company da other day. We may yet have some pie fixin's here after all. A future blog no doubt.
