There are many fans of these small, but very tasty, peppers. The crop is looking great, after a slow start. I suspect that as the chickens have spent quite some time in this part of the farm, the fertility was too strong. A very big pepper grower north of us once told me, he loads up his field with tons of artificial fertilizer to grow peppers. The crop is hungry, but he has to keep the field very wet or the crops can be stunted by too much fertility. So I asked Josesito to give the rather pale looking plants a couple of extra irrigations. That did the trick. Our fertility comes from our cover crops, sheep, and chickens. It will not wash away into the ground water so aggressively, as the artificial fertilizer my conventional farmer friend uses. We have lots of organic matter holding onto it for later use by the crops.
