I know that these peppers are very popular with the gardeners (and with me, definitely) but maybe there’s a reason why they’re so expensive when we typically buy them as seedlings. This year, we’re growing them from seed, and they've definitely been the most problematic of any of the seedlings I've been fostering.
This is a picture of their current state (on 4/29). I don’t keep detailed records like Elisabeth does (I should probably do that), but we planted the seeds on 4/4. The largest seedling probably sprouted about 4/13. The next largest seedling probably sprouted about 4/23, and the 2 smallest seedlings just sprouted yesterday. Maybe we’ll get some more!
