Yep, spring is the busiest and most fun time in the garden. I have several kinds of pepper plants that are big and beautiful now that the weather has cooled down some. It's too bad they can't be beamed (think Star Trek) somewhere that it's spring. Somebody would get a lot of peppers. But our cold/freezing weather will be here soon (before most of the peppers are ripe.) Very sad...
