I read recently that seeds saved from a pepper are easy to grow. Of course, I had to try it. Instead of discarding the seeds from a jalapeno pepper I was cooking with, I stuck several of them into a small container full of potting mix. I now have several pepper seedlings that I can plant out in the garden once they’re a bit bigger. I’m going to try the same with banana peppers and bell peppers, too, rather than purchasing seeds or plants.
