We have never really grown peppers before, neither sweet nor hot. It turns out that what I pulled out as weeds was actually what we were working to grow. Also early on they need water and warmth and light...a little higher maintenance a bit earlier and longer than we realized. We got this now, and next year will even have sweet peppers: bell and bull nose both. Eggplant too, we have grown them this year, not enough but now we know how. Yum.
I am the lucky woman who gets to be the farmer's wife to Homer Walden, the hardworking, creative and innovative force behind Sunnyside Farm. The farm is a pasture based intensive grazed farm in Dover, PA. We grow heirloom, open pollinated vegetables, chicken, eggs from heritage breed chickens, beef, heirloom breed turkeys for Thanksgiving and pork with no commercial feed, honey, eggs, Buff ducks. And the occasional flower or 2.
