How are your peppers doing? My hots (Hungarian Wax and Serrano) are doing all right; nothing spectacular, but all right. My sweet peppers, OTOH, are just plain crummy. I have them in two separate beds, and one in a planter, and they are barely producing. Is it just One of Those Years for sweet pepper production? I did the pretty much same things I always do with peppers, with the exception of placing a layer (3 sheets deep) of newspaper down in one bed and planting into that. But all the sweets are performing poorly. Pony!
