Late Harvest

Here is sort of a last harvest bowl of the year. I picked pretty much all the lima beans and chili and jalapeno peppers, plus one small green pepper. I would have been tempted to leave the green pepper, but the squirrels picked a whole bunch of them for me last month and ruined a plant in the process. Plus they grow pretty slowly this time of year.

I seeded and dried the peppers that had gone red by laying them on a baking rack that I set on top of a kitchen cabinet. (This works much better in the fall than the summer!) I froze the green chilis and put a couple green jalapenos in the fridge. We ate the limas....mmmmm!
