Pitiful Pepper Picking















As my ongoing efforts have failed to adequately quell my squirrel problem, I was forced to take extreme gardening measures last spring. That's right, I sprung for the as-seen-on-TV hanging planters. Shockingly, they didn't work. The tomatoes grew massive vines but never produced fruit. And only now, six months after it was planted, is my pepper crop offering a few tasty nibbles.

    I bought the same planters for my tomatoes. While I didn't have great luck, I attribute it more to the crap tomato growing weather we had this summer rather than the planters.

    Or it could be that...

    I made my own out of 5 gallon buckets and had the same problem. A friend at work did have success with his, but he had them hanging by his pool and they received a lot of reflected light. I don't think mine got enough hot weather or light.
