PUEBLO COUNTY — Freezing temperatures are coming and that means Pueblo Chile season is almost over.

We recently checked in with one of the farms out on the mesa to see how chile season went.

One farmer said it has been one of the more successful years and people from all over the US were coming to see what the chile was all about.

"It is wonderful, it is a dream come true. That is what we've been working for little by little and you know we have got this far and we are going to keep going," said Rocky Musso.

Farmers will be picking the last of their chile crops this week before the cold temperatures arrive at the end of the week.
