The first plant was about double the size of these ones and the only difference is that the other is located behind a raspberry bush. I put up row covers as a short of shade to see if it would help these grow.
And it did! There are about 12 peppers per plant and they are still blooming! The frost will eventually kill off its true potential unless I can come up with a cold frame idea to stretch out the season a bit(the B man will have to do it but he doesn't know it yet. I am waiting for the right time to break the news to him)..
