Ok.... I don't remember Papa Dreadie Select being such a head of cabbage before!

 

 

Thing does NOT want to go UP, only OUT!

This reminds me of a trippy little plant that came from a packet of numex twilight seeds directly from NMSU Chili pepper institute. Crazy little plant. Have no idea what it may turn out to be...I think its trying to bloom and set now but I can't tell for sure.  Its less than 2" tall and the nodes are so close I can't even tell how many there are. Here's a couple of old pics...

Ah, I don't use PayPal, so if I forget to say it in a PM, I said it here, so I didn't really forget, to say it.

Not to hyjack Guru...here it is today. I will keep follow on updates on this little guy over on my glog to keep from cluttering up this joint. There are some tiny blooms...but they aren't opening all the way. Hope to get some pods. Supposed to be Annuum, but obviously looking Chinense. Its siblings are all true to form and about 18" tall. Sprouted mid January.

No worries! Feel free to post updates in here too! That thing is crazy.



First fruit of the season for the past few years has been the Puna Miris from Sri Lanka and this year is no different, BUT this year there was one other....

A mini Rocoto ...

I love me some fabric pots! How many yards of soil does it take to fill them all??? I know you recycle and compost...but damn. Can't wait to see you crawling through that jungle again this year.

Used just over 6 tons of humus compost this year. Doing an experiment for sure. 

 

This year, I completely left out aerators. It will either be fine, or a hard lesson learned. Time will tell, ha

Glad you've enjoyed it! Has it been 5 years since I just started posting in this one? Time flies when you're having fun! There should be a few other glogs of mine floating around in here from the other 5-10 years. I gotta go back and read some of that one day, haha Glad to have you

Looking primed and ready, Rich!

 

I'm a tad envious of all your space.

Those rows of root pouches are quite

a spectacle, even empty  ;)

Yep! All the peppers are planted in containers this season. Need to rotate to some other food items in the fenced, in-ground plot. Came off main line in up on the hill, so no more hauling hose or using all my good hoses just to get some water up hill from the house.  All the air pruning containers are planted now. Sun has been brutal, so about 3% of them experienced the slightest scald on some of the lower, older leaves. I think they are over it now, and the temps have dropped back down to around 87-89 from 96F the last few days. Should see some action soon.

Thanks! Got all the air pruning containers planted now. The extras have been going to locals, any left after that I'll just pot up into smaller plastic containers and keep them in the holding bay/backups. 

 

Tomorrow I'll start getting them all caged. Wen't with sheep and goat fence this year, with the 4x4 squares to make for easier picking. The nets I'll order will slide down over those (shade cloth and some help with isolation). I think one good plant will provide enough seed of each variety for sure this season!  :lol:

 

Will also need to mulch these to help keep in moisture...gonna be a dry season I'm afraid. 

 

 

Made a snoot for one of my strobes with some black construction paper and then tapped a 2x barlow lens from my telescope onto the end. Created this nice circular corridor of light to beam across the face of this Mini Rocoto Flower. 

 

Juicy.
