I was thinking just that today earlier… That or some wood chip mulch need to get that dirt covered. thanks for the reminder
I’m not much of a pepper fan. Absolutely love pepperoncini, but won’t go much further than a jalapeno.
I do make my own rub, which is made up of a bunch of pepper varieties. White pepper, black, cayenne, tellicherry, paprika, toasted onion, chili powder, and fine garlic powder.

Yeah lots of difference in temps from Ohio to NM… I agree need some coverage straw or wood mulch.

The cypress mulch states it will stay in place and not float away. Wonder what it will do in near hurricane wind we get every now and again. I kid you not some years we see sustained wind @ 60+ mph and gust up to 70…
That’s it for now.
@nmgeo I think they all look happier already!
Thanks I agree out of love already…

Well you get them to veg longer that way…
Yeah they were in I inch plugs and had unopened flowers I wanted them to grow more so I gave them some stress training . I never
