How the peppers do grow
It's May 1, so here are my first-of-the-month pepper pictures. First up is the back garden, the big one with the hot peppers in it. In the middle you can clearly see the crooked rows of radishes that are doing very well, with peppers (and tomatoes) growing on either side. The bottom part of the garden is actually sown with zinnias, sunflowers, marigolds, and other hardy flowers since it turned out to be nothing but clay and gravel--not good soil for peppers.
Now here is the front garden, where the mild peppers are. It's not nearly as big but it's much better soil and gets lots more sun than the back.
And here are the eleven flats of pepper plants and seedlings that are waiting to be planted--preferably in other people's gardens, since I'm out of room. Today was my last Saturday that I have to work until June, so next Saturday I'm taking some of the bigger plants out to the big Oak Ridge farmer's market to try and unload them.
