FIELD MARSHAL AND OTHER PEPPERS
In addition to the agricultural technology of everyone's favorite culture, this letter is also interesting in a special way of covering greenhouses. Maybe it's worth taking note of it? The author does not complain about the yields.
Sweet pepper, no doubt, in one form or another, is loved by everyone. Many are like a tasty and healthy second course, but I also love to grow it. Nowadays, there are more and more varieties every year, the assortment is quite diverse. And it is precisely the fruits of an unusual shape that interest me the most. For them, I turn to amateur collectors, sometimes they come across in stores. So.
Marconi red - from 70 cm high, very long, my fruits grow up to 35 cm. The wall thickness is 5-6 mm, but the pepper is so sweet and fruitful that I will definitely plant it further. The variety is medium early (photo 1).
Sharpei - you can see for yourself, handsome (photo 2). There is not a single fruit similar to others, the bush is not high (it grows up to 50 cm for me), but it is literally covered with peppers (photo 3). The wall thickness is 5-6 mm, but it gains mass due to the amount of the crop. Mid-early.
From more or less ordinary ones, I plant varieties Siberian Format, Orange Marmalade, Leader of the Redskins, Field Marshal. I try to plant varietal peppers so that I can take my seeds.
And, of course, you can not do without hot pepper. I also have it, the one and only Red Bell (photo 4). Previously, I had a different variety, late ripening and very tall - in our climate, he did not even keep up in the greenhouse. Then I accidentally got a few seeds of a short, early-ripening, sharp Bluebell. I grow it in pots (photo 5).
I sow it simultaneously with all other varieties in early March, but dive into pots and put them in a greenhouse with tomatoes for the summer. I plant the main varieties of peppers in a greenhouse measuring 1 × 4 m, 80 cm high. Above - arcs and the densest agril.
I must say, I cover greenhouses in a special way: for a length of 4 m I take 6-6,5 m of agril, I fasten one side of the canvas with a rail tightly, but so that two tails of the same length remain. I fix the other side of the canvas on the bar, and when the greenhouse is opened, the agril is wound on the bar.
When the greenhouse is closed, the weight of the bar prevents the canvas from sailing, and the tails on both sides are tied with wire in a bundle (photo 6). Doesn't blow in any wind.
After planting, I do not open the peppers for 10 days at all: they have enough moisture obtained during planting, especially since I plant them in mid-May, when it is not yet hot. Then I try to open only the ends. When the plants reach 30-35 cm, I spud each row and water abundantly once a week.
I never pinch my stepson's peppers! Firstly, this is both time and my age does not allow it. Secondly, it is stress for the plant. It is better not to interfere with the natural process, especially since the harvest is always excellent.
I hope my experience with greenhouses will be useful to someone. And more, most likely, there are many enthusiastic garden lovers like me - call us, we will help you exchange varieties. I am always on the lookout for interesting and unusual fruit varieties.
