My best guess is that the roots are not happy with all the rain. Another theory is that I am always busting one dog in particular [PoorWordUsage]ing on my peppers. Last year he kept it to just a few and just et him feel good about himself. This year he initially focused on one ghost pepper, but since have noticed him teeing off on others..........
My peppers are being weird this year as well. All from seed, and everyday another one seems one starts to droop. Around 20 percent of the crop was put out fairly early and look great, not too much problem with the main crop, but the ones planted since about the first week in June are having a rough time establishing. Glad others are having problems 😉
In one word....disappointing.
The other plants are starting to take off, but the jalapenos are super weak.
Don't know why, they are the only non garden center plants I picked up, got a couple 4 packs at Cub.
But I wasn't about to spend garden center prices on 8 jalapenos.....maybe lessoned learned?
I'll keep you folks updated through the summer.
My jalapeño plants are about a foot tall. With last weeks heat the habanero plants finally took off. Serrano peppers have been the ones that look the best out of the three. Bought a battery powered timer to hook up to my spigot while at the cabin. 2 spouts, one for soaker on tomatoes and 1 to my sprinkler. Garden looked awesome when I got home. Well worth the $30 bucks.
