This year, actual poblanos are being planted. Well, transplanted. They’ll get their start indoors as soon as they arrive (it’ll take about 8-12 weeks before they head out onto the deck) and will be transplanted into well-fertilized soil once evening temps hover around 60. Soil pH 6.0-6.5.
UPDATE: And Seeds of Change’s poblano was back-ordered with no end in sight. And these guys actually have to be planted very, very soon as they take 7-12 weeks to mature enough for the journey to the little blue deck. Thanks, Park Seed Co.
