I have gorgeous poblano pepper and habanero plants that are producing like crazy. Haven't grown either one before. Tomorrow night it's supposed to be 39 degrees. I'm in Carrollton so it probably won't get any colder than that. Can the plants survive 39 degrees, or do I need to give them some protection? I sure hope I don't lose them while they're covered in peppers!

In my experience, 39 degrees should not damage them. If you're worried you can cover them with frost cloth (sold at North Haven Gardens in Dallas). I usually leave them on the plant until I'm sure we're going to get a freeze, at which time I'll pick all the peppers whether mature or not.

They do seem to produce like crazy in Sept. and Oct. and I just always hope they hurry up and ripen before the first freeze! I like my sweet peppers to fully turn yellow, orange, or red. As you said, they are gorgeous right now. Just about every dinner has one or more peppers incorporated into the recipe these days and I just love it.
