Today, February 13, 2015 I started 6 Cayenne seeds using the PAPER TOWEL METHOD of germination.  I plan on planted several of these Cayennes is my perennial borders.  I am thinking when they start ripening they will add a pretty RED color to the landscape.  The red will look pretty for a long time, since I let them almost dry on the plant. I need to dry more this year I am almost out of them.  I LIKE SPICY. Laugh

Only 1 out of 6 Cayenne Peppers grew, so I started a few more seeds.  Three plants should be enough to use fresh and have enough to dry for the Winter months. I am thinking of planting them in my perennial beds because they are so pretty when the peppers start ripening.  I leave the peppers on the plant to do most of their drying, so they look pretty for a long time. I will have to cage them because last year they got 3-4 feet high. I will use a tomato cage.

One of my Cayenne Peppers are planted in a container down in the bog garden and producing nicely. Two other plants are planted directly in the bog garden near the path (not a real wet area). The bugs don't seem to like the Cayenne Peppers as much as the Bell Peppers.  I have 3 plants, which is plenty.  I dry them whole and store them in a glass jars.  They are so pretty. This year I will grind some of them for 'crushed red pepper flakes'.
