This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

transplanting peppers

peppers pre-planting peppers planted

This year I raised one type of plant indoors from seed - peppers. They are a mix of five types of chili peppers. I made the pots from strips of newspapers. Today I planted them, paper and all. The pots worked great. They held together well. And even without bottoms the roots held the dirt in the pots. The only problem, I have room for 20 and I raised 90 plants! Chili peppers anyone?

Is it true that peppers don't like to be mulched around them? I read somewhere that it inhibits their growth. I have 'Chilly Chili' peppers that I started inside and I put them outside a couple of weeks ago. They aren't growing very fast, but this is my first year for growing them, and maybe that's just how they are.
