    sun Do peppers really love full sun ?

    Well I have several pepper plants in full sun and a bunch with some shade of course that is here in very hot and humid Houston, TX  and I believe that it might just depend on the  variety of chili pepper as to whether it prefers more sun and heat??  I find that several varieties really like more...

    I am not a big producer of pics and I would not have a clue on how to post a picture even if I had taken some! So unless someone wants to post some pictures I will have to pass until the plants are much further along and  then I will have to get out there with my camera and try to take some...

    Here is my "Glog" about the peppers I am growing
