Appears it was okay, since I now have little peppers. I hope at least a couple get big enough to chop up and throw in a stir-fry. I’m really curious to see how the taste of a homegrown pepper differs from a store-bought one.
The pumpkins I transplanted last week also seem to be faring well. The first couple days were kind of rough, but they seem to have rebounded. It’s like they know only a couple of them will get transplanted into the big raised bed. Each one is trying to outgrow the other! And they’ll soon outgrow the pots.
