I give alms to the professional bloggers

Standard

It is so hard to sit here and write posts every couple of weeks let alone ten to twenty posts a day as some do.  So there you go professionals, sitting in the Starbuck’s sipping your caramel macchiato, typing away.  It takes a lot and you have what it takes.  That being said, I would like to thank those of you for checking in on me even though I don’t write anything for a month at a time.  If it wasn’t for you, I probably would have quit doing this a long time ago.  That being said, I want to address some issues on the farm.  I’ve been reluctant to do so because I don’t want to flaunt our issues, I want to flaunt our successes.  But, it’s fodder and it’s something for you to chew on.  So our bell peppers, all varieties, are getting these thin white spots across their flesh.  What are they?  Sunburn.  Did you know that bell peppers could get sunburned?  Well they can.  Not all of them are effected.  Just the one’s that are on the top and get western exposure.  The remedy is to throw straw on the top of the plants to help shade the fruit.  Has it been working?  I couldn’t tell you.  I haven’t noticed any improvement.  Paul said that they even have a mold on the inside of some of the peppers.  Now I really don’t have a clue about that, so if there are any experts out there on bell pepper mold let me know.
