Decorative peppers

The use of vegetables for decorative planting is an old Southern custom that we don't see often enough any more. Collards, in particular, do well. Besides, you get to eat them later. My favorite is the sweet potato vine.

And that's enough. I'm practicing with a new way of posting short blogs. See the pic of the pepper below. I'm this instance, the gardners needed to plant them 3x thicker. As they are, the peppers look like specimen plantings. They do their job better as beds of peppers.

They are edible. I just don't know how hot they are.
