Pepper Palooza

I had to harvest all of the peppers in the greenhouse due to a major aphid infestation that was affecting the pepper plants but nothing else. I picked a whole bucketful of gorgeous peppers—lots of Anaheim green chiles, poblanos, bell peppers, and gypsy hybrids. These were far and away the largest nicest peppers I have ever grown—and from only 4 plants! I pulled out the plants and disposed of them. I had been spraying the plants and using sticky traps to control the aphids, but nothing was working. I gave up and removed the plants in hopes that the rest of the greenhouse will not be affected.
