Fall at Gordz Pepper Ranch is a wonderful sight! The pepper gardens are overgrown with lush and loaded superhot pepper plants with vibrantly colourful peppers. So many varieties! Some of the hot pepper plants grew to gigantic proportions! The pepper plants really love being in the dirt versus potted, and they sure do love the rain! The mature fruit continues to be far larger than those from container plants. As Thanksgiving approaches and the cooler temps and frost descend upon us, we perform the "annual harvest" and we are thankful for our bounty! We proceed by cutting the pepper plants from all the gardens (we do move several into the greenhouse to keep the plants alive). We cut the plants by variety and bring them to tables by the trailer load; whereby, the pickers proceed to pick each plant clean. It's a long day, but with a little help from our friends and some great music, we manage to get it done! Of course, this leads to major production! We use all the peppers while they are fresh, when only the finest quality will do!
