Time to harvest pepper

We have a few pepper vines that are mounted on walls, and trees. The creepers on our jack fruit trees have gone beyond reach. We will have to give up plucking that which is not accessible. Most of it is plucked. It will now be separated from the stocks and then dried in the sun. There is good demand for pepper. We keep enough for our consumption and sell the rest. Our garden keeps us on our toes throughout the year. What are you busy with in your garden at the moment?

@louievill I cannot call it business. I have very few vines. My garden is a hobby

I didn't know how pepper was actually grown so I've learnt something. I've never seen seedlings for sale here.

We had bought plants from nurseries around here and now we increase them by planting cuttings.

@allknowing That's a good idea. Some things grow easily from cuttings.

The peppers that you are talking about could be what we call capsicum here. This is a condiment. And no it is not difficult to grow pepper vines.

Corn peppers are costly because only few people are planting it these days. It is good you have so much supply from your garden.

As it is winter here, the cold weather vegetables, such as cabbage, are growing well.

I did try to plant cabbage but we do not have a climate that suits those that enjoy a cold weather.
