    Frost forecast for tonight. Have brought half dozen plants into the kitchen but can’t fit any more. Waiting on so many plants still to ripen. Not looking good. So frustrating.

    You shouldn’t need rubber gloves for any of those, VC. I’ve been handling Caramel Moruga, Peach Fatalii and White Bhut Jolokia seeds today. I really wish I had worn gloves. Ouch!
