Heavy peppers


Well it looks like John Nieuwenhoff's persistence and of coarse his WR have interest in growing peppers peaked across North America! Lots of people growing them this year. Way to go John

Thanks Zeke, I may also get the record for the shortest lived heavy pepper record. I can't get over how many people are interested in growing them now, especially in the UK and Europe. 1000 grams is the next goal!

Quite a few in the US too. Not everybody is quite as enthused though. First thing out of Cindy's mouth was, "but you just planted that back to grass last fall. haha, she's so funny.

That's not grass, that's my cover crop!


Oh well I'm sure you'll hear all about it at the patch tour this year.

There's even a professional Dutch pepper grower trying them this year, but with his own seeds. I'm going with his seeds, John's and some Polish ones.

    It is seed drying time of year. Keep your GVGO seed packs in mind. I am looking after sorting and sending out the packs this year. Lets all work together to make them great. Send in all kinds of seeds. Everyone is looking for different things in a seed pack. You must be a paid up member for 2020 to receive your seed pack. Here is where to mail them to: Jeff Warner 487413 Aidie Creek Garden Road Englehart, Ontario P0J 1H0 Send me an email or msg so i know something is coming and will let you know that i have received it. aidiejeff @ ntl.sympatico.ca

    John won the 150 square foot contest this year with a 1175.6 lb. pumpkin. The first one grown over 1000 lbs. in this contest. Congrats John!
