Putting up Peppers

The weather has been cruel to the garden in July.  High heat and low moisture has caused most things to come to a standstill.  I have watered, but nothing replaces Mother Nature's rain and cooler temps.  The one thing that has remained nearly unaffected in the garden is my peppers.  They love the heat and the low moisture is making them more potent.  I am dehydrating peppers once a week now!

Red, yellow and green bell peppers

A few jalapenos and a red chilli pepper, I am trying to dehydrate them whole.
