They are all up and going and had a bumper crop of bell peppers on them. When they got big enough I picked them all and put most of them in the freezer. But since the first picking, they don't seem to be producing very many flower buds at all. Only thing I've done is after the first picking I tilled and weeded all around the plants and some I have placed newspaper down around the stems and placed grass clipings on top of the newspaper. Will do the other plants when we mow next time. Am I doing something wrong? We've been getting a lot of rain lately. While most of the country is drying up, we've been getting some good soakers.
