Red Hot Peppers From the Garden
The ideal soil temperature level for peppers in the spring is 70 to 80 degrees
F. The best daytime air temperature level is 65-80 degrees F.
Tips for Extending the Hot Pepper Growing Season
In cold-climate locations, conservatories and row covers are standard weapons in the fight versus late spring and early fall frosts.
Get a running start on peppers by pre-warming the soil to lengthen the seasons. (Similar to putting the oven on preheat!).
You might get a jump start on your neighbors by several weeks by warming your garden beds with clear plastic sheets.
Clear plastic raises the surface area temperature level as much as 15 degrees, where black sheets will only raise it by 5 degrees approximately
The lay of your land can affect how and when the garden bed soil warms.
Hot Peppers Add Spice to Your Garden!
One of the most effective veggie gardening strategies for fighting cold soils is shaping the garden surface area prior to growing hot peppers such as cayenne and jalapenos.
The method resembles making raised beds except you shape the bed in a wavy pattern like waves in the ocean
Make the garden beds 3 to 4 feet broad and slope them to the south.
Plant warm weather condition crops on the south face of the waves just listed below the ridge.
The soil drains pipes well there as it performs in a raised bed.
