Some Like It Hot — Peppers in Containers

Peppers, Peppers & More Peppers

Remember those peppers I planted last year? You may remember my discussion about where and how to plant and I shared that I plant mine in containers, planters, and baskets on my porch where they get 100+ sunny temps and grow like crazy. Alas, I am posting a photo I shot last year when I harvested the first batch. They are gorgeous and really yummy hot! I plant them everywhere and this year my planting included a few new varieties, including, “Hot Hot Cherry Red Peppers” which I love especially for breakfast with eggs and bacon. (Yes, I am truly a Southern gal)!

We know tomatoes, herbs and other veggies can grow quite well in containers. I grow all of mine in them and I would not do it any other way since they are in planters right off the kitchen and allow me to “grab” what I need for dinner in seconds. I also like the easy care of them. You can see my older posts here when I first started out in this process of vegetable container gardening for more information. Just click on “categories” link for the posts.

Give them a try and if you like “hot and spicy” food like us “Cajun, Creole, Southern and Southwestern” cooks do, try some of these for instant gratification.   Enjoy, Chef Jacy
