Cooling the Chiles Amid the Wind Damage
We had some high winds last week. Some people lost power and a few trees were knocked down. Our damage was limited to a couple of broken ribs in this old patio umbrella.
Our top producing plant in the garden, the hot chile plant, gets a little rangy this time of year.
Time to cut it back...I cut the plant to half its height.
Then, I tie up up to a stake to keep it upright.
After that, I notice a couple of good chiles on the Anaheim chile plant. Those will be helpful in this week's cooking.
That, some deadheading, mowing, and other trimming fill our compost can over the brim.
The yard looks better when done, could probably stand to use a sweeping but there's no more room in the can.
Maybe next week.
