Then grow sans cover until moving outside. They invited me to come back in April for more instructions.

    Current state of planting:

    Those are going to be fantastic. I'm very fond of them pickled.

    Planted indoor ... late feb

    Have not seen any peppers yet but thinking its soon.

    Plants are getting large and I started wondering if they will all play nice in that planter. Decided to make a planter and move a few over. Small one is 6lbs of clay. Big one is 12lbs. Photo doesn't do it justice, the 12lber is not small. Thinking I will do a little black underglaze and sgraffito on the outside.

    Thank you!

    A question about planters. I see lots of ceramic planters and people talking about how its positive the clay absorbs water and is part of the plant environment. This seems great but then I see plastic planters which clearly do not have the water absorbing ability. Some of the plastic planters do have a reservoir or some water regulation ability. What is the thinking on planters and clay Vs plastic?

    For those in the know, why I am asking? Because there are a few choices coming up with the planters. Do I fire the pots to cone 06 and keep the ceramic soft and able to absorb water? Do I fire to cone 10 unglazed on the inside which would not allow for much water to be absorbed? Do I glaze the inside and not allow any water in at all? In all cases, there is a hole in the bottom to allow drainage.

    I just use what I have and powerwash and scrub them after each season…mostly unglazed clay. My oldest son grew them in plastic bags in college, as he couldn’t afford the pots and they did really well.
