The Practice of Producing Pepper Plants
Last year, I took up an offer for some free pepper seeds. Not just ordinary old seeds from any store or even specialty seeds from the overpriced home garden shop, I got seeds from a fellow blogger. Blogmeister, if you will: The Peppermeister. Sir Pep happily shared a nice bounty of pepper seeds and I have attempted to make them grow.
Attempt is the key word here, people. Attempt.
Here are my lovelies in late March, all full of hope and dreams:
I was particularly proud of my nice little labels for all of the varieties that I was going to soon harvest. Please comment on how nice the labels are, it will make me feel better.
Take a look at my first born sprout. This is a magic moment in Pepperkind.
Progress is happening … aren’t they pretty?
Here, my lovelies were growing nicely and the weather was getting warm so I decided it was time to migrate my seedlings to a protected area out in the yard.
HONESTLY, I attempted to protect them. Attempt is the key word again. Ugh.
Devastation. It was colder that day than expected and the direct sunlight was not kind. Dammit.
Well, a few survived and I’m still attempting to produce a few pepper plants. Wish me luck. I’ll keep you posted.
