On the overwinter front, I just noticed that one of my White Hab overwinters has leaf spot again. Knew this would come up at some point since *all* of my plants had it last year. I'm going to blame the elevated humidity as of late, it's been pretty dry in the grow room until recently. I came home the other day and the humidity was at 68% inside. Yeesh.
It completely trashed many of my plants early in the season last year, but they all pulled through eventually.

The Datil OW is going nuts. Not many pods have set (thankfully), but not for want of trying..
On the other hand, the Limon OW continues to spit out pods... I just got a couple ripe ones off it yesterday.
On the seedling front, the White Habs have been flowering for a while (and have also been setting pods, pinch pinch pinch), and the Tepin is about to join them.
Oh, and I just repotted my other Mini Mini... hopefully it will perk back up. One little pod on it:

This Datil looked ready for potting up, but the root system is still not as strong as I would like... seems to be the case with many of the plants. I need to watch my watering, I think I drowned a couple of the plants at some point. They'll recover in time...
This is what happens when you're an idiot and accidentally perform a fan-assisted topping of several seedlings. You can see some more evidence of the damage on the leaf... fortunately, this Cumari is already starting to bush out, so it'll recover:
I'm always impressed by the White Habs. I will be curious to see if the children are the same as the mothers, as I got them from Hirt's and the pod shapes were inconsistent between the plants.
And lastly, I planted a few Asparagus crowns last year and the first shoots are starting to poke out of the ground. I don't know why I've never grown these before, they are incredibly low maintence:

My Aji Amarillo (small strain) are ready to go... still got about a month until plant-out. I think I'll try potting a few of these up soon. I wasn't too impressed with the root systems last time I looked, but by now they should be well enough along...

I will, however, pinch the buds on the Aji Amarillo, at least until they go into their final pots... they're spending some time outside to just open up the grow area a bit. I'm hoping the moderately cool temps at night will help to slow their growth.
Datil, on the other hand, doesn't seem to mind... still putting out more pods, I'm debating about just potting it up soon. I don't see it coming back inside unless the temps drop back into the low 40s.

KUTGW, sync. Looking really promising.

Apparently getting drunk and starting seeds is a thing, so now I have some Malagueta, Prik chee fah and Prik kee nu. The lack of frutescens in my grow list was bothering me... don't expect them to do anything before I leave but I'll call them an early start on next season.

Stop asking and just eat it!

Looking pretty great Sync, that Hab is like a little cocked diesel mofo. Looks incredibly strong. You should consider using it as a hedge.
Would be a very small hedge... growth is nice and compact. I've seen the overwinters being larger but they don't get more than a couple feet in their first year.

This spot is also nice because it's east facing, so it gets a few hours of morning sun. I think I'll use it while I harden the plants off... here are the lot of them (so far) waiting for summer to come, a mix of early and late starts, and a few overwinters.
Aji Amarillos (small strain) that I couldn't bring myself to get rid of when they all sprouted... most of these will be placed in a good home eventually.
And the rest:

My possible Trinidad Scorpion cross. I'll see if I can get any of the F2s to set pods, but when the F1 peppers are ripening they remind me more of the Scorpions. I'll often have reds, oranges, and greens all present on the pods at the same time.
Wiri Wiri looking strong. Right now the flowers look pendant, but that might change by the time the pods set.
Datil reaching for the sky:
And finally my 7Pod, which isn't looking as good as it used to. It has also been suffering from edema and I'll need to hit it with some Cal-Mag during its next watering, the new leaves are so puckered and wrinkled that they actually broke in places. It'll perk up in time:

We're getting storms over the next few days so I might try moving them out there on Sunday so I can watch them.
