I've grown sweet peppers before, although my first effort at container growing them was a dismal failure, with only 1 pepper harvested, and that in November. I have to grow my veggies in pots because I don't have enough full sun space in the back yard, so they go in containers on the mostly sunny patio. This year's crops are looking to be successes. Lots of lovely, spicy hot peppers. I and my Very Indulgent Spouse (VIS) love hot peppers. We love them in burritos, in Nachos, in gardinera. VIS loves them so much, he would eat them straight. When I asked him what we should do with the peppers, eat them raw and fresh or pickle them, he said both. Now I just have to figure out the best time to harvest them. I harvested two a couple of weeks ago, and we discovered that they weren't hot enough yet. And so we wait, we know not how long, for the peppers to ripen. Someday soon I'll harvest another. They're starting to smell spicy already.
