For plants that are a little too tender to survive the winter in your climate, you can still grow them with a little protection.

I made a homemade cover using PVC pipes and mattress cover bag to protect my peppers from frost.

Looks good, Jordan! Thanks for sharing! Were you able to harvest peppers in winter, or just keep the plants alive for an earlier start on spring?

Trimmed them back to get an early start for this year. Already pinched the first flowers in January
