I planted the peppers in the strawberry beds with the thought that once the strawberries had finished fruiting, the pepper plants would have grown large and would shade them, protecting them from the intense summer sun. I figured that I would have a much better chance of keeping the strawberry plants alive through the summer if I could shade them a little bit, and I could still get a crop of botanical fireballs at the same time. So far its been working out really well. The strawberry plants look much better this year than they did at this time last year, and I've been picking a bunch of peppers everyday. In particular, the habaneros and the hot wax banana peppers have been very productive.
I only got three ghost chiles, and to be honest, I'm not sure what I'm going to with them. I'm too afraid of their insane heat to just eat one, and I'm not even sure I can make a hot sauce or a pot of chili with them that would still be edible. I'll probably have to make a special batch of hot sauce with them, and use it very sparingly until I build up enough tolerance. I know I'm not ready for that kind of heat yet I ate one of the Tabasco peppers right off the plant the other day, and learned my lesson: You play with fire, you get burned!
