Turning my chile peppers into perrenials,

or at least I am going to try.   I was listening to Mike McGrath this morning on NPR and he taught me something very interesting.  It seems that pepper plants are not annuals and can live for years under the right conditions.  This is amazing!  To think of all the work I have invested for the past decade of propogation, care and waiting all summer for peppers to ripen.  He said to dig them up, pot them, bring them inside before frost and keep them under fluorescent lights for the winter.

Here I have potted a few of my fire-hot aji omni-color chiles.  I gave them a pretty heavy trimming and will keep them in the greenhouse until temps drop below 50.
