I'm looking forward to seeing the pepper tunnel in full swing, but I can also relate to the "wait"...it's been a crazy winter for all and which is better.. watching the plants struggle through near freezing temps or thriving in the warmth. I'm with you and playing the waiting game with the weather.
Hey Greg, thanks for dropping by Yeah, they won't be happy yet outside. Especially in the tunnel where it's 79-80F during the day and maybe 40F at night. That's an to big of difference in temperature which brings the plants out of balance. We'll just have to be patient for higher temperatures at night
Can't wait to see the tunnel in action, I'm sure it's going to be full!
And this has been a cold winter, farmers even waited 2 weeks longer to plant corn this season.
It's gonna take a lot of work first and I plan on making a decent path in the middle this time and place borders beside it. Not as full as last year since I now got about 130 plants going, last year I had 250 This way I can leave more space between them which makes it easier for me to maintain and just more light and space for the plants.
Looking good Stefan! Lots of work to do here too! I did put my first plants (8 Datil's) in the ground yesterday. I'm happy about that. I got to get some progress pics up soon.
Have a great week!
Sounds good, Mike. In the beginning it's always a lot of work but once you got them finally in ground it gets easier doesn't it? Your Bonnet's are doing excellent and becoming beautiful plants, very short internodes with almost heart shaped leaves. It really stands out compared to the rest.
Some non related pepper pictures this time.
The volunteer Cilantro that has grown just before the winter has survived so far and is showing new growth. Evidence of our very mild winter.
Also our Thyme bushes are growing again, I grow these myself from seed last year. Savory behind it.
Chive, Parsley and volunteer flat parsley from between the tiles.
And the cat being lazy as always
