Spring peppers

How to have an awesome pepper harvest.

Spray the plant with Epsom salts (1 teaspoon dissolved in a spray bottle of warm water (about 4 cups).

That gives the pepper plant a boost of magnesium that is required at flowering time to produce fruit. Spray them again 10 days later and in a few weeks, our expert friends report, you will have more peppers than you can eat.

Also, for a super added boost.... dig the hole for the pepper plant, add a book of ripped off match's.. (not the covers, just the match's) cover with a little dirt, and plop the pepper plant into the hole.  The sulfur in the match's give a nice whole season boost to the peppers!!!
