First pepper of the new growing season!


How cool! My little “test Sweet Bell Pepper plant” is loving its’ new home in a pot of “Rabbit Hill Farms organic potting mix” and is already growing a huge pepper that is almost 1/2 the size of the little 6 inch transplant:

This little “happy camper” is being fed with this recipe:

I have never seen such a small plant produce such huge fruit. :-)

You must be giving the plant what it needs N2, for it to produce such a huge pepper, and I notice there are 2 small ones as well. Your plant is certainly doing well.

Mariek, the two small ones might be the pair on the plant label that is stuck in the soil at the back of the pot. :-)
The little plant has developed 3 new blooms that will become 3 new peppers, but they have just budded and are quite tiny. I hit your profile and was surprised that you suffer from similar back problems that I do. It is frustrating to me to not have the physical capabilities that I had when I was younger. Mowing the yard is difficult and tending to all of my plant experiments is becoming somewhat difficult, but I do what I can to learn as much about plant-life as I can and test things that I pick up along the way. Plants are such an awesome life-form to observe. I wish I had done all of this about 30 years ago! {chuckle}

Chris, do one thing and follow the organic ways of plant growth and propagation. Mother nature has done it for about 3 billion years and her recipe for the "forest floor", with all of its' microbial activity, works well for ANY plant on the planet. It's some cool stuff to observe and test! ;-)
