October Garden: Peppers and Eggplant Survive!

The pepper plants are hanging in there. And so are the two varieties of Eggplant I planted. In the picture below is my tabasco plant. I will pick them all and make dried peppers. The eggplants I will eat over the next week.

I am excited to have vegetables into October. I didn't do much to the eggplants but kept them dusted. Flea beetles will devastate them in my garden.


  1. How do you dry out your pepper? Do you use a dehydrator?

  2. Morning,

    I dry them at 170-200 in the oven. To much heat can turn them a little brown. But for my needs that's okay. I dry the smaller peppers whole and cut larger peppers. Once dried, I mash them up in ziplock bags as to not touch them.
