2022 Pepper Crop

2021 was a pretty good year for growing chile peppers in Wisconsin. As always, some varieties produced better than others but overall a successful growing season. Now the operation is put away for the winter. In 2021 I tried a few new methods for growing my crop to make my "Urban Farm" more manageable and productive. Had a few glitches but overall successful enough to continue the same operation for 2022.

I want to take this time to thank all the customers who purchased peppers from Doorstep Peppers whether online or at local markets in 2021. Your interest, feedback and purchases help me decide what varieties of chile peppers to grow in coming years.

Below are the varieties I anticipate growing in 2022. Please stay tuned for more information as plant availability is known. 

I have begun to place my pepper plants in their "summer homes"' also known as 5 gallon pails and large pots. Just a little leary of the weather since last night the temperatures were hovering in the low 50's. However it's forecast to be warming up by the weekend. YEAH!!


I'd like to take this time to thank my good friend Mike Timm for once again providing me with the absolutely most amazing plant stock to work with. I am very anxious to grow some of his crosses asa well as most of your favorite varieties, and have them available at markets this summer and fall at local markets and for online sales.
