It’s that time I figure. It was a nice day on Sunday so we decided to do a porch activity. On Sunday, 3/7/10, we planted over 20 varieties of hot peppers and 2 sweet peppers. They are being housed in a grow space that Erin’s dad gave to us; under florescent grow lights (from Lowes), 70F, 40% and light for 1/2+ the day. I planed about 3 per variety so that hopefully at least 2 germinate per plant. That will be a lot of plants; but you have to count for my green thumb to kill some! 🙁 If anyone has some tips, especially for clipping to make more branches/stronger fruits…I’m completely open to all ideas! If you have any seeds you want to trade for, let me know.
Most seeds are heirloom varieties. Here is a list of what I planted:
Bhut Jolokia – The ghost will haunt you!
Chervna Chushka (sweet)
Chilly Chile Chiles
Purple Glow in the Dark
Amish Pimiento (sweet as an apple, so they say)
Cayenne Long Think
Super Chile F1 Hybrid
Little Elf (Daphne can’t wait for these)
Scotch Bonnet Habanero ( 5-in-1 and ? varieties)
and…my personal favorite from prior years…Bulgarian Carrot.
