I grew the pretty pepper plants two years ago to defend my garden against small critters. They were gorgeous plants, very bushy, just dripping with bright red finger-sized peppers. I dried them and stored them in glass jars on my kitchen shelf. I can’t even remember actually using them – didn’t need to – but they looked so good on the shelf, so I just left them there. Two years later, as I’m grinding them to flakes in my food processor, I can see they haven’t lost their potency. The only problem is that with all this rain, I have to make daily applications of the stuff or it won’t do any good.
