Hi Pepper Folks, Critter, your pepper gardens are an inspiration! I sure hope mine get looking as good as yours. This is my first year for the garden. Temps here in Phoenix have finally fallen below the 100 degree mark so I will be transplanting some seed starts soon.
My question though is about the pepper plants that have been in the ground since last spring. I have fertilized with compost tea, alfalfa tea and, more recently, bat guano tea. I have lush bushes, lots of buds but only an occasional pepper. Is it because it's been too hot or should I use a different fertilizer? Here's a pic taken yesterday, they are chiltepins, there's 4 plants in this big bush.
