One thought on “2021 Seedling Sale”

  1. The green pepper I bought last year at Hunger Mountain, that was in a section marked “Littlewood Farm,” turned out to be the one and only delicious, Green Pepper Flavored!! pepper I’d tasted even in the summer.
    PLEASE tell me how to buy green pepper plants from you and how to take care that they develop flavor. I do pot six wooden matches tips down, into each hole, along with a tablespoon of Epsom salts sprinkled into it, when planting. But that’s all I’ve
    ever learned to do.
    I also don’t know how to prevent the disease that causes rotting around a black spot on a pepper.
    ANY help you can give, even if just pointing me to a good write-up on growing delicious green peppers, would be so very much
    appreciated. THANKS for whatever you can share,
