I am growing some peppers and using marigolds as a protection plant. I am very interested in organic gardening. Just getting started so I don’t have much experience to offer anyone. Your’s look so good, had to say something.
Cut off the bad parts see if any good seeds in it dry those and just take rest of it and dehydrate it.. if you have any herbs or other foods from the garden dry with it to save energy.. so its not all alone drying lol.. i also take small harvest of veg that won't make a meal even for one and sometimes just dehydrate and put in a glass jar to have a soup/stew mix of veggies that later on you can take out a little/lot to add to a meal of choice. I do same with peppers if only 1 or 2 of many types
But not enough to jar/can I dehydrate them and just mix them up in a jar for a future mixed pepper blend. Or you can make individual jars for each type to separate them if you plant to make pepper sauce etc later.
