Gardening, Harvesting & Preserving/ My Home

I CAN Be Taught

Or maybe not.

Maybe I just can’t learn a lesson.

But golly gee, look at me.


I am trying peppers again.

In a garden bed with manure and compost and lovely soil.

One bell pepper….

…one sweet pepper…..

…and a whole lotta eggshells fortifying the soil around them. I am going to give it a shot again.

Sun, good soil, and calcium from the eggshells.

Cross your fingers.

    I have no idea, I have never grown hot peppers, but I hear they are MUCH easier to grow. I would LOVE ones without the heat actually, mmmm, I love the taste of jalapenos, just can’t take the heat. I craved them while pregnant with Mr K, and had to drown them in sour cream to get rid of the heat but get the taste.

    I am aiming for lots of water and better soil this year!

    I had peppers last year, and I was very disappointed. They were small and bitter, not sweet or juicy at all. Like you though, I am trying again. I let them get a bit dry last summer, so I’m going to keep a watchful eye on the moisture level.

    I also had jalapenos, which I could eat right off the plant, seeds and all. Not a lick of heat to them! They tasted better than the green peppers did. Do you know the secret to making hot peppers grow hot?
