The Story of Your Food: Peppers

Posted 4/15/2017 11:50am by Dennis Skoworodko.



I’ve never met a pepper I didn’t like! And yes, I have a weakness for peppers! What is not to like? Tasty and flavorful, sweet or spicy, (or very, very spicy!), and oh so colorful!

Peppers are a long season, heat loving plant. So in our part of the world, we definitely need to start them indoors long before we plant them out. (We started these pepper seedlings March 27th). In the spring, once the weather is nice and warm, they are then planted out into the field. And then depending on what happens with the weather, sometimes we cover them with a temporary row cover to give them protection from the wind and a warmer environment for them to grow faster in. So with a little care and sometimes a little babying, we can get them to ripen into the delicious colorful veggies we love so much.
