Peppers seem to thrive in containers. As cold as the spring was, and as late as summer was in arriving, the peppers are still thriving this year!
I raised 90 pepper plants, sweet and hot, from seed, and they were doing great up until a purchased plant brought aphids to the entire batch. By the time I found the aphids, the infestation was quite severe.
Below are photos of 2 of the seedlings. This is how the plants looked in early June, when I decided I would go out and buy plants and give up on my babies raised from seed.
My husband George took 45 of the seedlings on as his special project and here is a sampling of what they look like today. So, lesson learned: “Never give up, never surrender!”
