I am the wrong one to answer this question due to historical results. A couple of years ago, I got a window box, bag of Miracle Grow, and plenty of TLC. I planted the seeds and nurtured them... I talked to them and treated like my own children. About the same time, while laughing at me, my wife took a handful of seeds, kicked out a spot in the hard red dirt and tossed them in and stomped them down. She watered hers only every once in a while. Within a few weeks, she had freakin" jalapeno "trees" with more damn peppers on them than we could eat. My plants....well, they were green.....
Never, and I mean NEVER compete with a Hispanic woman at growing peppers!
