  1. Love those blue peppers. They look like Christmas lights . I don’t baby my peppers at all…just don’t have the time. I find the prep work here in the fall on the soil allows me to just pop the plants in the beds and they do their thing. Most do seem to like staking . I had a Golden Treasures pepper grown in soil from a huge pile of rotted down spoiled alfalfa hay that grew 5 ft tall and was loaded with huge stuffing golden stuffing peppers about 8 inches long. A market garden friend planted my seed close together and they were much shorter and smaller. I think you would love to grow an heirloom from the Chesapeake bay called “Fish “.It makes a lovely houseplant with twisted varigated leaves and the peppers all shades from white to purple to orange ,green and red . It has a unique flavor as well that goes well with seafoods… not too hot .
    Another of my favorites is Yellow Doe Hill, an old heirloom from North Carolina. It is very productive with small, thick -walled, sweet perfectly formed, stuffing peppers… perfect for a single serving. I usually create stuffed peppers with them and freeze them for quick meals .
    I am curious about the source of the glass mulch for the fungus gnats… they are a problem in my winter greenhouse.

    I can relate completely! I hate phones and I don’t even have a cell phone at all. People assume I’m a Luddite until I tell them to send me an email and I’ll pick it up on my iPad. For me, the iPad was the answer to the whole iPhone dilemma. I hav87&#e21n;t upgraded to the cloud yet, but it’s on my to-do list. Sounds awesome!
