I just planted my peppers June 1st. I have two small jalepeno fruits and 2 small green peppers. Not sure if the green peppers are ripe. All my plants are under a foot. I planted half on June 1st, and I have a bunch of seedlings that are currently about 4 inches tall. I plan on growing those till they're a foot then setting those out. Here's a link to my garden https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set ... cfe2875179 I'm in Northern VA too!

I understand slow growth early on, but they haven't realy picked up at all as the weather warmed; however, a couple plants got eaten up by slugs back in early to mid May, which I'm sure didn't help them get growing. My jalaenos and serranos have been starting to pick up though, and I'm starting to get flowers on them. I've had a lot of luck with hot peppers before, so I wouldn't be surprised if they turn it on in the next 2-3 weeks.
I absolutely love bell peppers, but they just don't produce for me as I'd like. Might be time to start thinking of making better use of my limited gardening space.
There you go Someone doing great, congrats Dusty. I see some of you others are as well.dustyrivergardens wrote:I have had my share of problems a freeze 3 weeks ago and pill bugs killing my tomatoes eating around the base of my tomatoes like a cut worm but bad enough to kill a bunch of them before I realized what was doing it...but the peppers are doing great
