    consistency Use the strained pulp or toss it?

    overwintering Concise directions for over wintering pepper plants?

    I did a search and there are tons of threads, too many. One that looked good was 18 pages long.   I remember a few years ago reading how to prune, store in a basement or garage, how to water peppers to over winter them. Is there a glog or thread that has simple step by step instructions vs...
