I've got one 50' row of peppers in my garden this year. They were all raised from seeds, and the plants have been in the garden about five weeks now - they're half-grown. I've got a soaker hose running down that row, and soaker hoses water my whole garden. Until yesterday the pepper row was choked with weeds but I've pulled those now and I got a 50' row of tomatoes and about half the peppers mulched with grass clippings today.
CARMEN. I've grown Carmen for several years and it's my second-favorite sweet pepper, after Gypsy. Carmen is productive, but a little less so than Gypsy in my experience. Carmen is thicker walled and even sweeter than Gypsy when ripe, so that makes up for it. I raised 9 Carmen seedlings but I ran out of room in the row, so I gave 5 of them to our daughter for her garden. I'm raising 4 Carmen plants this year, and they all have a few dark-green peppers on them plus lots of blooms.
