One of our little experiments this year was a couple of pepper plants. They had a very difficult time during the early part of the season, when it was quite cold — at least by pepper plant standards. As a result, they remained comparatively tiny, less than a foot tall. Imagine our surprise when a number of tiny little peppers appeared, that soon grew to a respectable size. We just had one in our dinner salad and it was quite delicious; fresh, with a hint of heat to it.
Seattle may not be the perfect climate, but if we start the plants a bit earlier, perhaps in a cold frame, I’m sure we can get a nice harvest next year.
