transplanting peppers

the weather has been decidedly warm resulting in an earlier harvest of some things and prolific growth with all of the vegetables…some good others not so much!

i’m finding quite a few items going to seed, turnip, lettuce, radish and particularly the broccoli, so much so that i have done a replant.

the most adversely affected have been my peppers.  i’ve used the “square foot” gardening method and find, in general, that it is too dense and plants get overgrown by the more vigorous growers. this has resulted in too little sunshine and some leggy pants.  this morning was d day and i dug up all the peppers affected (after giving them a good soak) and moved them to a new plot.  with luck they will thrive and produce in time for the fall harvest.
