I have several varieties of hot pepper's, that are mature now, but just
I'm wondering if the weather is playing a big part in this factor?? We live
in Southern Ontario, temperatures are been low 20's ( normal for this time
of the year... 30's ) We have also had a lot of rain, very few sunny days. I
started them from seed that i brought this year. last years crop was
excellent, barely any rain, hot days.
My question is: " Could the weather be the problem? " Does anyone else have
any suggestions or been/going through the same thing?
I'm in Rochester, not much different from your area, and everything's weird
this year. My potted cherry tomato plants, growing in full sun all day long,
had 8 billion fruit on the vine as of this past weekend, but only 3 ripe
ones. There were hardly any June bugs (although I don't miss them). The
streams are too muddy for trout fishing, due to the endless rain. But, don't
despair. The best time for removing sod and making a new garden is after a
heavy rain. I'm moving into my new house in 10 days, and will begin digging
within a day or two. Two days before, it will stop raining for 6 weeks. Your
peppers will regain their muscle at that time.
My personal experience with pepper plants is that they can vary year
to year. I planted peppers labeled "mild" and they turned out "hot."
Green peppers left on the plant become sweeter. I prefer to plant
about a half dozen pepper plants, each a different variety. I don't
mind any of this as they are all tasty. I found better yields from
working in some bonemeal into the soil before setting the transplants.
