Help! Fall decided to come all of a sudden this morning!
While that makes me happy, I have a bell pepper plant that i've been nursing/spoiling/etc this entire gardening season, and I'm damn determined to let it make peppers!
Long story short, it's my only seed that sprouted, it went into the ground garden at 3 inches tall.. got eaten by a bunch of slugs and other bugs, so it got moved into a larger 25 gallon pot. It got hit by a tornado, ruined by a hail storm, almost blown over by the hurricane (I brought it inside) and, as of this morning, i've got a 5 and a half foot tall pepper plant, with 10+ marble sized bell peppers that are starting to grow and are getting bigger every day!
But, now, the temperatures dropped into high/mid 50's, and I'm fretting over it like a gardening mum. What can I do to help protect it until it can finish growing all it's peppers?
