I caught the pepper plant fever again this spring but so far I think I've kept it under control. I'm dedicating a section of a raised bed to see if I can keep pepper plants year round.

I have:
Poblano (2)
Giant Marconi (1)
Golden Marconi (1)
Aji Dulce #2 (1)
Alma Paprika (1)

I'm thinking that I'll remove the Golden Marconi and replace it with a standard red bell. And I have seeds that I saved from a plant we discussed in another thread here last year. They were very small, very hot and very prolific. They made a great hot sauce and I crushed the dried ones up for red pepper flakes. I grew that one in a 7 gallon container and it did well so I'll do that again.
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ‘...Holy Crap ...What a ride!'

If we have a mild winter, I've had pepper plants last 3 years or more, but I just grow a bell. This past freeze took my two Big Berthas so just planted two more. We like that one. It is prolific and actually produces decent size peppers that can be stuffed.
