Growing up in Minnesota, there are definitely some things that we plant in our gardens like peppers, tomatoes, beans, and zucchini. As a kid, I always thought green bell peppers were possibly a different type of pepper than the red and yellow ones that we often see in the grocery store. Not until I started planting them in my own garden, and having The Wife sprout them in the house and get them growing months earlier than I ever had in my life did I realize that the different colors of pepper usually aren’t seen in Minnesota due to the shortened growing season.
Being an enthusiast about everything I do, I planted ghost chili peppers this previous January for growing during the summer to give them the maximum growing season. Unfortunately, with the impending frost I had to dig them up and move them indoors to give them enough time to turn the green chilies into blazing hot red peppers.
I know The Wife likes parsnips and other things that have over a year of time between germination and harvest but can be left in the ground. Am I crazy to move plants I could buy at the store back into the house before the frost?
