New Garden Plans – Peppers
We’re plugging along on our plans for the 2011 Demonstration Garden. If I haven’t posted this week, I blame it on all the planning meetings we have had!
The very first garden that we’ve finalized is the Pepper Garden. The Master Gardeners planning this garden worked really hard to get a good mix of pepper varieties. There’s a great range of colors, sizes, shapes, and heat! In the map below, we’ve allowed space for 18″ rows of peppers with 3 plants per row. The colors are a general indicator of what color the peppers will be at maturity. In parenthesis, it tells if the peppers are bell peppers or hot peppers. Of course, the “hot” designation is a range. The NuMex Sunrise is the mildest hot pepper, and I think the Chocolate Habanero is the hottest. Everything else is in between. The pepper garden will be exciting this year…in more ways than one!
