Peppers (Container Gardening)

The sun gently nourishing the leaves of my pepper plant in the container. 

This picture was taken this morning, 9/4/14.  While I have 3 pots with pepper plants, each pot is only producing one pepper on the plant.  Hopefully they will get a little larger and then they will be cut into strips and frozen to use later in the year!!

This is the first time I have used containers for my pepper plants and I can’t say it was a success with only 3 peppers.  I may have to work on the soil to try it again next year as my grandmother used pots for her peppers also and she has triple the amount on each plant that I have.

  1. Peppers take SOOOO long, don’t they?! I did green peppers in a container a number of years ago and I was not pleased with the quantity it produced and decided the effort wasn’t worth it for me to do again. Tomatoes, on the other hand, WOW – we got a ton of cherry tomatoes!! 😀
