    Bitter pepper from pests

    Aphids, caterpillars and slugs are very afraid of bitter pepper.
    Why not use it instead of chemistry?
    1 kg of chopped hot pepper pods (be sure to cut with gloves, otherwise you will get a hand burn) pour 10 l of water, boil 5-7 min, leave for 2 days.
    Then strain and spray vegetable plants. Dilute Xnumx g of infusion in Xnumx l of water and add Xnumx g of grated soap.

    If you process trees with this solution, double the dose.
    If the solution remains, store it in sealed bottles in a dark and cool place.

    In addition to the Bulgarian pepper, I grow on the dacha section 4-5 bitters bitter pepper. I use its fruits to make a spicy sauce, add it to the workpieces, and grind the dry pods in a coffee grinder and use it as a seasoning.
    My favorite varieties of bitter pepper are Astrakhan, Chinese fire and Spicy bell. Sowing seeds in the nutrient soil in the middle of February. In each tall glass (300 ml) one seed. In the future, do not pick up peppers. Shoots appear in about 10 days. Saplings are regularly watered with warm water, I do not spend additional fertilizing before planting.
    Bitter pepper planted on the site in the second half of May. Unlike the Bulgarian pepper, the bitter is more resistant to low temperatures, so I do not do shelter for it. I plant seedlings in the holes, each add a couple of handfuls of humus and 1 tsp. purchased fertilizer for tomatoes and peppers. I stir and dispense with warm water. Seedlings of pepper deep in the hole until 1-th real leaf.
    In the future, peppers require regular watering, loosening. Before flowering, I feed the plant with nitrogen fertilizer, and after flowering with phosphorus-potassium fertilizer. If the pepper is tall, like, for example, Spicy bell, I tie it to pegs. Lower stepsons and excess ovaries I delete. Depending on the variety, on one bush grows up to 30 peppers.
    With pests, for example with aphids, I struggle with the help of "green soap". In 1 l of water, I dilute 40 ml of soap and spray abundantly. But it is better not to wait for a pest, but to treat plants for prevention.

    The sweet life of bitter pepper
    Every year from early spring I grow seedlings of bitter pepper, and in the beginning of summer I transplant it into a greenhouse. I was convinced that bitter pepper, like sweet, will not give a good harvest without copious fertilizing.
    Ready to disembark I think seedlings, which has 7-8 leaves. Planted plants thoroughly watered a couple of times a week, warmed up in the sun with water. By the way, when I place a bitter pepper in the greenhouse, I do not put the sweet one there, otherwise it will grow bitter. I feed pepper 1 times in 2-3 weeks. I use two fertilizers alternately. First: in 10-liter bucket of water I add 10-12 art. l. wood ash and give a mixture to infuse for a day or two, under the plant I pour out about 2 l infusion. The second feeding is as follows: 1 kg of chicken manure pour 10l of water and I insist 10-12 days, then 1 l well shaken up slurry poured into a bucket of water, stir and pour it peppers - 1-1,5 l per plant. The most developed peppers in the autumn dig up and put in pots, which I store in a cool basement. I water them only occasionally. In late spring or early summer, I transplanted peppers into the greenhouse. So the life of the plant can be extended for another one or two seasons.

    Problems with pepper
    What happens to pepper and how to cure it? About a month after planting the seedlings, almost all withered. We put cover material under the roof - some of the seedlings moved away, and some of them are already wilted, some bushes have died. And when I pulled them out of the ground, they looked like this (see photo): the central root rotted, but there were almost no left ones. What to do?
