Those peppers I covered in the Earthboxes have easily doubled in size in just 6 days since I covered them. I see some small peppers forming on the Giuzeppi, but that's all, so far. This morning I got up very early, and did a little work out front, and on the side where the peppers are, since it's in the shade then. I sprayed the okra, peppers, and flower plants with Surround, and found out that I can actually spray right through the tulle fabric, onto the plants! Eventually, when I start seeing peppers, I stop spraying with the Surround, but I figure I'll put what I can on, which helps deter some of the insects.

Mr. Waybehind here...I finally got the last of the peppers in today. Serranos and Jalapenos, as well as Gypsy and Havasu, two I've never tried before. Not too concerned about the late date, 'cause peppers don't jump and fruit here until summer and early fall, anyway.
