Perusing the Peppers
I’m sure this will become a fairly regular feature as we continue through the summer, what with 16 different kinds of peppers growing! So far, the chile peppers and hot-but-not-kill-you-hot peppers are doing the best, while the bell peppers, for the most part, are still growing plants without much flowering or setting fruit. And the habanero – it’s just hanging out. That’s what I’ve experienced from habaneros in the past. It’s like they have to accrue a certain number of hours of heat and sun before the really grow and start to produce.
Despite being slow to get going, the pepper garden is now looking lush and healthy. They’ve come a long way!
There are a number of other peppers starting to show up, but these (plus the Albino Bullnose and the Piros featured in last Friday’s PhotoEssay) are the frontrunners in productivity so far.
