Great looking plots Adam!  I've been hugely slacking on Glogs with soooo many good ones to keep up with.  Loving all the pictures and keep up the good work buddy!

Long time no see! Moving, applying for jobs, and ramping up my work schedule put a huge hit on my gardening time. Especially in my posting about gardening time. Also I rescued a cat. I am sorry I dropped out of the community a bit... there just wasn't time to stay caught up and maintain my plants. Life happens, and it's great. But I miss you guys. I am am going to make an effort to check in more often.


Where to start?


I actually maintained the plot until the end. Last week was my last grow week. After pulling dozens of pounds of peppers of my plants (especially that crazy yellow bhut!), I finally threw in the towel. I ran out of time so I started letting folks from the surrounding community take what they could use. JA Habs were probably the most popular cooking pepper. I always made time for the reapers, bubblegums, and goat's weeds. Those are all in my top 10. I kept things as nice as I could, but with the first freeze coming I decided to shut the plots down. 




Yours truly and my buddy prepare for the uprooting...


Here are the plots at the beginning of demolition:




Actually tomatoes are already down..




Can you spot the helper?




Still everything had to go.




My buddy pulled the Funky Reaper. Still a good 100 pods on this guy, though some of them were a little sickly in the end. They're on the dehydrator now...




I was going to do some OW's, but I couldn't stop pruning! Ended up turning my OW's into bonchis. More space efficient anyway...




The grow shelves come back to life. Much of the bonchis will probably move to the windowsills...




Recognize these guys from last winter?




But every end has new beginnings...




Tons of closing thoughts. My favorites were definitely the red supers, with BB7 at the top of the list. Hottest pepper I grew was the Chocolate Moruga... youch. Bhuts, Jals, and Habs were probably the most useful. Jals had a big flush and then tapered off pretty quick late into summer.


Here's where I'm at:


4 Bonchis from 2013 (chiero, 2 red hab)

7 Bonchis from 2014 (chiero, brainstrain, choc moruga, carolina reaper, yellow 7 pot (scotch bonnet), chintexle, bubblegum). Planning on replanting some of these next year.


That's all for now. Going to stop by once a week or so and look for updates. Thanks for everything THP and I look forward to getting ready for 2015's (slightly scaled back) grow!

You had an excellent grow this year! I can't believe how well those raised beds produced.


I look forward to your 2015 grow!

It's all about the pods....
