I would not plant in the same place as the fertility of the soil will be depleted.

Not quite ripe seeds....

I would hang them upside down in a paper bag and dry until they rattle in the pod.

Some pods don't have holes in them so you will have to break the pod open when they are fully dry and just scatter the seeds.

Sorry, I don't slap anybody. Consider yourself unslapped. I have to agree with my daughter - I'm a pedant!

jo47, bag compost is NOT the same as the compost you make yourself. Bag compost has no nutritional value at all except that added by the company when they prepare the 'compost' for bagging, and it is only supposed to be effective for up to six weeks.

Now, I agree bagged manure - any manure - has value.

The shoots should be pinched out at the end of June - before mid-summer's day. Then they have time to grow lots of new shoots before winter. Make a note on your 2016 diary!

Have you consulted a professional? Ensure you are using the correct mixture of fuels for the machine. Do you have a handbook? You may be able to get one on the Web or from the manufacturers.

Peppers freeze really well. Just cut them in half and remove the seeds and stem. Then freeze as they are. No blanching necessary, though they will thaw out soft.
