Thank you! It's getting heavy out there! Can't wait to start harvesting! Much to do! Then netting the plants for seed later this fall!

 

I love seeing the garden helpers active. This one found us inside early on in the season before the plants went outside. Still in the seedling phase, this one was just a baby eating fungus gnats and inch worms. I can only imagine what types of critters she is snacking on now. Good to see you again big girl.

I'll jump in here. I believe those are Capsicum Rhomboideum flowers. An awesome-looking wild Capsicum. I haven't tried it yet.
Hey, Rich! I just notice the pic with the ants mining the damn aphids. Ugggghhhh! 😩
What are the pods 2 pics below the aphid mining pic? Great shape on a tiny pod.
Love the last pods in that post.
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

EDIT:
Now I forget. Is it called Mining the Aphids, or Farming the aphids? 🤔 lol. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Yep. You got it. The pod under that shot is OG Primo. Those ants are actually herding a species of tree hopper!

Nice!!!! I'm indulging in the wilds a bit. Have you heard of Zanahoria Triangulo?

I started one late and the shape appears to be correct; triangular/teardrop. But the plant is purple. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Harvest week one, in the bag. Gonna net, let things ripen back up, and at it again in two-three weeks. I’ll consider that another OP harvest and then strip green and open flowers. All following harvests, I’ll consider ISO.

Many lessons learned this week. Among them, I learned that I needed another freezer. I learned a lot about many new to me varieties. I learned a lot about deseeding. I also learned a lot about glove changing protocol and complete capsaicin chaos. Total and extreme capsaicin breaches and outbreaks occurred all over the house. Ha

I also sort of developed a way to deseed many peppers at one time while NOT WASTING FLESH OR JUICE like you see with many methods of mass, mechanical deseeding. That one single thing always turned me away from that as an option. Something hit me last night while Jen and I were deseeding that tray of Binquinho...a revelation. I will share in due time in specific detail but suffice it to say, I may have invented a way for seed and sauce lovers to get the best of both worlds. I want it all and therefore, I’m always pondering. Will keep you updated.

I had great times with friends and family. The conversations, the laughs, and even the cries. I doubt any of them will forget this week. I know I won’t.

I love you guys.

-Rich
