Chuck - I love seeing your pepper garden(s) progression in pictures. You're going to have such a beautiful garden and a great harvest of peppers. Do you have space for any other vegetables? You say you weren't a gardener growing up, but you must have a green thumb somewhere in your ancestry. Keep up the great work!

#1437865 Too much manure?

Sounds like a win-win situation. Good soil, good aged fertilizer.

#1432264 Pepper Infused Oil

Posted by catherinew on 11 March 2017 - 10:36 AM

That oil looks wonderfully tasty. Soups, salads, stir fries, and lately making our own mayo. Never going back to processed mayo.

Welcome! Nice to see you here. Yes PJ sold his pepper business to a gal in MA. She calls herself Pepper Jo.


I have relatives in the same town where she lives, so they'll probably pick up a few seeds for me to check her out.


In any event, we welcome questions and there are lots of people with great info. Welcome!

Glad that you're home with the family and can enjoy your garden. There's always bags of leaves if you want/need them. Lots. The wind here has been horrible so you must have had gale force winds these past few months. Good luck with a hoop house. I'm sure your tender plants will be very grateful.

Looks really yummy. I like the way you gave the step by step directions. Thanks!

#1409003 Fungus Gnats

I use Microbe Lift  with 10 drops per gallon. Maybe yours is more concentrated.


Cinnamon on the top of the soil also works. Just make sure to water from the bottom, keeping the top part of the planter fairly dry.
