Can they ripen on a sunny windowsill?

They're teeny buggars. Not worth it. They just didn't do well this year for some reason. It's okay we canned a lot of salsa verde last year- we've got plenty.

No snow here, but we might see some flurries next week.

From Sunday onwards, it's looking like highs of 39F-48F, and lows of 27F-39F. So a bit too mild for large quantities of snow, but wet snow or a bit of overnight/morning snow is possible. Pretty typical weather for early November - the average would be days in the mid 40s and nights in the low 30s.

I was looking at your 2021 thread and it seems like this is the time of year things end for you. In 2021 it was more for the cold than the snow.

After our mini October heatwave soil temps shot up to 60s again. Similar to beginning of October and early June.

On Oct 31, 2020 soil was at 45.4°.

And my first Freeze coming in 2 days

They dropped to 40F on the 22nd here, and then we got a bit of ground freeze in the upper 0.5" the following night. Then they shot up to 59F on Friday afternoon, almost as high as the low 60s we were seeing in the summer mornings (summer afternoons reached 70s-low 80s). Now they're taking a tumble again.
