Gardener’s almanac (Jan. 25)

A pick of a pepper – After writing about seed varieties last week, Rosalie Hatfield of Belle Plaine wrote to share a favorite of hers. “For many years I have tried to grow good sweet red peppers that don’t rot before they turn red,” Rosalie said in an e-mail. “Last year I tried Atris Hybrid from Park Seed, and they were wonderful. They are described as ‘horn-shaped fruit that is nine inches long and quite heavy, boasting thick walls just perfect for stuffing.’ We ate many, many just clean-and-eat and never got around to stuffing. We were able to share and have many frozen for the winter. I have ordered seed today for this season’s garden.”
