pepper/squash: strange soilmates
We planted seed for a Jabenera (sp?) red pepper next to a yellow squash seed in the NC mountain earth. Pepper came up small, with one flower/bud, next to small squash plant. Suddenly the pepper disappeared! Seemed to have gone underground. Later we found a large red Jabenera pepper on the stem of the regular size yellow squash. Pepper taste was not as hot and more "full in the mouth" texture. But very red and good size. Squash seemed normal. Would anyone have any idea what happened?
