Pots vs. In the Ground
I had three pepper plants going in pots last year, and all did reasonably well, but I plan to have a larger number (and variety) in the ground this year. What advantages and disadvantages do you see between in the ground and in pots? Surely pots dry out faster, but I can keep a pot in near 100% sun, while the spot I have in mind for ground planting will be getting maybe 3 hours less of sun per day. These would be in the early morning and late afternoon based on the contours of my house. Is this going to be a huge deal in the long run? I know all vegetable plants need lots of sun, but am I better off in pots? Or perhaps a spot in full sun?
