2015 Garden Plans: Peppers & Potatoes
It is always a bit of a challenge to figure out what we are going to plant in the 4′ x 4′ gardens. This year we are planting peppers in one of them and potatoes in the other.
1. ‘Lunchbox Orange’ is a variety we tried a couple years ago. This is one of the “snack pepper” varieties. It has pretty good yield and delicious, sweet, orange peppers.
2. ‘Sweet Sunshine’ is a new variety that was developed as an edible ornamental. It looks like an ornamental pepper, but unlike regular ornamental peppers, the peppers are supposed to have a good, sweet flavor. Usually ornamental peppers are really hot and not very tasty.
3. ‘King Arthur’ is one of our standard, recommended bell peppers.
4. ‘Sweet Banana’ is a standard banana pepper.
For the potato garden, we really only need 4 seed pieces, so the Master Gardeners will go out and buy a couple seed potatoes locally for planting.
And I think that is the end of our garden plans for this year! Of course we have our Prairie Star annual flowers in various locations around the garden, but we won’t know what we have to plant until May.
On to the planting season!
