Mike's Pepper Garden

So far this year...

The website is getting a bit of an update after languishing for almost a decade. The navigation hierarchy is going to get streamlined a bit, and I am going to add a section to present the collected information (now scattered) that I have about specific varietals. I'll probably add an informational article or tow as well. I don't expect much to change in terms of appearance or layout.

About this site...
Mike's Pepper Garden  is a collection of information relating to chile peppers, including starting Capsicum plants from seed, growing chile peppers in the garden and in containers, and canning and preserving chile peppers.

Each year's section contains information specific to that growing season, including seed and supplier information, specific plans for indoor germination and transplanting to the garden, and germination and growth data summaries for that crop of chile peppers. These sections of the site may also contain topical articles and planting calendars for a given season.

The Pepper Science section explores technical aspects of the chile pepper, including pepper chemistry, medical uses of pepper derivatives, and pepper-related US Patents.
