Re: tomatoes

No, I can't do tomatoes because of the acid. But the peppers I ordered
this year are Quadrato Asti Giallo (name just sings doesn't it?) Jimmy
Nardello's, Burans and the Orange Bells which are new this year. The
other three do BEAUTIFULLY here in the heat. Most store bought hybrids
quit producing and look raggedy for most of July and August. Not these
babies, they never quit fruiting and they looked great. The Burans are
small enough to grow in big pots (which I do) but they produce just as
prolifically as the bigger varieties. I've grown their Healthy peppers
too, they're nearly as prolific as the Burans and small enough for pots
also. Peppers are just slightly smaller than the Burans in my
experience. But all did well, no diseases and no nasties nibbling them
w/ all the basil and lemon balm around them to mask their smell. I like
their Miniature Yellow Bells (no transplants - seed only) not only are
they edible, they are a beautiful ornamental for a pot. The peppers are
about the size of a quarter. I'm trying a new variety of theirs (Garden
Sunshine) from seed. Will let you know later in the season how that one
does. The seedlings are about 3" tall now under my grow light. Was that
more info than you needed??
