questions about hot peppers
Is it better to grow hot peppers in a greenhouse or in a raised bed in the garden? I know hot peppers like it really hot and in the summer, our greenhouse gets very warm, but I have the mesh cover netting to shade them from the very hot summer. We live in the Spokane, WA area and the summers can get in the 90s and 100s. Thanks for any advice. Sharon

Growing in a greenhouse is a great way to grow hot peppers in more northern climates, but growing them outside is also a possibility. If you decide to grow outside, look for pepper varieties that produce in a shorter season and do better with some cool weather. In a greenhouse, you should be able to grow a wider range of varieties.
