On another note my back yard is infested with poison ivy, one of the vines is 2" thick and about 25 feet tall in a tree. The vine on the right of the tree in the picture is the poison ivy. I'm not allergic, but my fiance already has it all over her arms. I don't want to spray, but she wants me to. We'll see what happens. Probably need to take care of that before I put peppers in the ground.

My experience is just to do as much of the preparation as possible before you put those plants in the ground.

I've got all the compost, perlite, and gypsum mixed into the garden. I'm ready to get the peppers in, and they're ready to go in, but if I'm going to be spraying the ivy I don't want to risk killing the peppers.

Hey Ethan, that was a heck of a score on the compost. Good luck on finding out what kind of critter is digging at your roots.
Nice selection of peppers you got there too
Thanks! I was super happy to hear about the city's compost program. It's a lot cheaper than anywhere else in town, between half and 1/4 the price, and it's not the best compost ever but for the price it can't be beat.

Put chicken wire around the garden, hopefully this helps. Plants seem super slow to grow, they're 3 1/2 months old and most are less than a foot tall. My fertilizing routine hasn't been great but there's 10 wheel barrels of compost in the garden. I'm starting to wonder if it's PH related. My tomatoes on the other hand have been growing like crazy.

Maybe try feeding them. Is all the wood chip from the compost? The raised bed I put city compost in isn't doing as good as I would like. Next year it will probably do better when the rest of the wood is broken down. Ive read that wood robs nitrogen from the soil

I have had two plants now, just die really suddenly. No idea what's going on, the base looks really woody and brown, and it dies in a day or two. See picture attached

Harvested my first peppers, 6 pepperoncinis. Little disappointing since it's almost August, but it let's me know I need to amend the soil more for next year.
I usually do not start harvesting any real quantities until mid-August.
I harvest pods well into October, sometimes early November, and I am basically on the the same latitude as you, a little north, actually.
Let us see some pics of your entire grow.
