Oh, I see. Thought something went wrong and had to replant peppers.
I'll cut back to 100 plants next year. That's half of what I planted this year. I grow plants for my uncle in San Diego. I send him some every year. I may grow for a few others as well.
My goal is to not plant earlier and earlier. Which is what I've been doing the past few years. These Chinese and wilds are very long season plants. I want to start later and later. I think I've found a system were I can sow seeds two months later. That puts me from January to March. The real test is the hoop house. I'll see how long I can extend my season. I need to confide in a member here that can help me with the setup. Its going to be a hydro to soil. That will take less pressure off. I've had these plants since January. Had a little hiccup with soil, but Im back on track.
I wonder how Anthony is doing?
Anthony - if you're here, let us know how things are going for you.
He wrote that he was busy with his kids since they're getting older and in sports. I'm glad that he's back at his 'old' job closer to home. Haven't heard from him since March.
I started peppers later this year, but may change that to even later, maybe first week in Feb. and later for annuums. Your hoop house is a great asset for keeping on track and hardening off those plants. Best of luck with the new setup.
It's so nice to have that backup place where you can extend the growing season. Show us pics in December!
