Two New Growing Peppers Videos

| November 20, 2017 | 2 Replies

I have two new growing peppers videos, which detail the complete start to finish experience. This year I grew 36 pepper plants, about 16 varieties, and all looked good till the end of August. While I was away for two nights at the National Heirloom Expo, 31 plants got attacked by leaf miner. My two Orange Thai chili plants left over from 2015 and 2016 were in ground in the front yard. They were struggling with bacterial spot. I concluded, after much research online, that bacterial spot was what had infected all my peppers last year. I was really hoping it would not spread to my 2017 peppers. But, it did.

Watch the 2-part series and see how things worked out. In spite of everything – leaf miner, bacterial spot, limited sun, no rain whatsoever – I got a decent harvest. Please be sure to “Like” the video and share with friends! I need your support.

Pepper Harvest in September

So, I won’t be quitting. I may grow fewer varieties, and fewer plants, and more sweets, but I will be back next year growing peppers.

    Overwatering and wrong soil….has turned leaves pale yellow.
    What is the best soil mix and fertilizer? All the leaves are completely yellow can I turn things around? The plants are 1-2 feet high and have produced peppers already. I was away for 1 weeks high humidity and rain on the east coast on LI. Can I save these plants?

    • Yes, cut back water, only water when soil tests dry. Spray with 2 tbl epsom salts dissolved in gallon of water, and wait. You may not get peppers for the rest of year because it’s already September, but you may be able to keep them alive over winter inside with grow lights and will give you peppers earlier next year than if you discarded the plants. Spray plants with fish fertilizer spray or also add to watering. The plants will thank you. Good luck!
