Pepper plants - North - South and all between
I am on the Missouri/ Iowa border due south of Des Moines and I am getting tons of hot peppers for salsa but no bell peppers. I am concerned because so many things from frogs to wasp did not survive our winter. I've been going out with Q-Tips and pollinating that way and finally getting fruit setting. I know how frustrating all the little weird things are from year to year. One year I might be buried in cucumbers and the next year get none. Last year no one had tomatoes but this year we do. I just go with the flow. Right now I am buried in peppers and basil and the squash is finally setting fruit. My oat grass is coming up but corn and beans are a loss this year. I've never had a year that I didn't have lots of green beans but this year I got plants but no flowers so no beans.
