Daisy&Lucky's Mom Thanks! Ill try to bring in one or two of our pepper plants. I dont have anywhere in the hose that gets alot of sun. and Our florida room is pretty warm but no direct sunlight in the winter. Ill have to look at my tomatoes and see if I can bring them in with using some grow lights.

Girl_Loves_Hydraulics OK so this is my year old jalapeno and my salad cucumbers...I'll never grow cucumbers in the ground again. They grew so fast and I didn't have any of the issues with bugs. But ya bring those pepper plants inside until next summer! This is the picture I put out when it first went outside. Got over 30 flowers on it because it had spread out so much...

ANOTHER EDIT: I'll get some more pictures, but I also winterize my Tristan strawberries inside also. They are only good for about 2-3 seasons, but I did have a lot of clones/runners this year. Had 14 runners, but unfortunately the girls killed the biggest pot of 'em I had . But you can also do strawberries all year round inside also, you would just have to be mindful of pollinating. Tristan strawberries I think work well because they are day neutral and will produce all year with the right conditions. Tristans aren't supposed to put out as many runners as I got, but I guess they just went buck wild. But get a hanging basket, throw those up in the corner somewhere, and eat strawberries in winter also! It also helps if you have a little grow tent. I am a prepper of sorts...I have 2 grow tents plus a indoor holding tank that I am about to stock with trout...

I've never done tomatoes much inside, but I did talk to my aunt and read a few articles. As long as you have a constant warmer spot (I think over 70 degrees is good with LOTS of sun), you can have tomatoes all year round inside. You would have to start one every 2 weeks though if you want a continuous cycle. I just learned that most peppers are actually perennials! If you do the same, warmth and sunshine, you will actually get peppers all year round! Great thing is they are also self pollinating so just tap the blossoms with your finger. I'll post you a pic of my younger one as the other one I cannot find on my phone...But I read about someone that has a ghost pepper bush that is over 8 years old and going strong. But I do a lot of indoor/container gardening right now because of all the clay in my yard.

EDITED TO ADD: I'm going to have to let you know when I get my dwarf fruit trees in. I am planning on doing some tangerines, apples, and cherries. Just trying to find the right dwarf stock first...

Nigel Didn't get as cold as predicted last night, only got down to 38f so ill get another chance to get pick the rest of the tomatoes. Tonight might finally kill em off.

My jalapeno is now almost 2 feet tall and look like a little tree lol. I wish the dogs wouldn't have murdered my serranos and chile rellanos though

jocoyn We actually DID Have one bore into a green butternut come to think of it...But only one....

Pawsed Thanks for your reply. I would hate to lose those, too, and it's good to know that aren't so susceptible.

We've had a good run with the summer squash, so it's not so bad to have some loss there. Those butternuts are just beginning to ripen and it would be discouraging to lose them now.

jocoyn The butternuts more immune though I have seen them get into the flowers.

Pawsed Are the butternuts in danger too? No way can I cover all of those. They are everywhere.

The row covers are very effective, pinned down at the edges, so nothing can get to the plants. Since the cabbages are self-pollinating, I can keep them covered for their entire lives. It is difficult to check their progress, though, since it's hard to see through the cloth, and it's a little tricky to determine how much cloth to use when you first plant. I try to have plenty of room to spare, but sometimes the plants look like they are straining to break free.
