Itty Bitty Baby Peppers
The pepper plants that we transplanted last week have all put on some buds, flowers, and in the case of the above plant, itty bitty little peppers. Now, the correct thing to do with just-planted tomatoes and peppers is to remove all the flowers and buds so that the plant puts more energy into its roots and leaves for a couple weeks before starting to produce. So…as hard as it was, we did pinch off almost all the buds and flowers we could. But no one had the heart to pinch of these two already-formed peppers. I think they are on the ‘Shishito’ pepper plant in the Asian Garden. We’ll have at least a couple “early” peppers, even though we shouldn’t!
