Indoor overwintering pepper plants update:
All seven bell pepper, one jalapeno, and one banana pepper plants are still alive. Some have lost many of the their bigger leaves, but most remain.
New stems and leaves are forming, and there's even some blossoms on a few of the plants. A couple of banana peppers are getting bigger. One banana pepper is almost ready to harvest. It will quickly go into the next salad or get stuffed with cheese.
Edit: A reminder that I did harvest over 16 pounds of bell peppers from the seven plants in 2008. Some bell peppers are still frozen in the solar powered freezer. I have used no artificial lighting for over-wintering the pepper plants. Just sunny windows.
Edit: In about 6-7 weeks the pepper plants can be re-transplanted back into the garden.
