How did everyone's over wintered peppers do? Mine are mostly just sticks, but are popping out new leaves as fast as my grandma used to spit snuff juice.

I've got a Sweet Pickle little ornamental pepper that is almost 2 years old. It's doing very well, full of ripe & ripening peppers.

I have an amazing row of peppers still in my greenhouse. My dear husband forgot to turn off the little electric heater (oops. that was very expensive) and they seem to have survived in the greenhouse where I planted them after my spring plants were emptied out of there... green sticks with a few buds starting to swell... hip hip hooray. I would have never thunk of trying this....

I couldn't keep up with the aphids when I tried it.

I tried with one Jalapino, but it died a tortured death, by aphids. I tried to plunge the plant upside down in a bucket of water to soak the aphids but their babies still made through and continued the work.
Tomato plants are not bothered by aphids.

Where did you keep them and how warm and humid was it?

They are generous plants! Sweet peppers are easy to consume or give away.



Superhots - fermented pepper sauces, pepper jellies, dried and powdered, frozen whole for future use, use fresh in cooking......
