I'd think with you coastal types and the copious amounts of precip indigenous to the northwest, you guys greatest foes would be molds and fungi....


Gawd, I love this site! See all those $300 words? I NEVER get to use those on other forums!!

actually, i have to battle aphids non stop every year,,, that sometghing that drives me insane... i wish i knew how i could get rid of those lil pesky bastards..... I try to be as organic as possible when i do the soap and water , it affects the foliage of the chilies to much , so i do them by hand... not happy about it , but it kinda is what it is 

 

look into Neem oil spray. Bhut, if one thing makes me stray from 100% organic it's the damned aphids. I'll give all the organic methods a try, if they fail, ones got to do what they have to so they don't lose the whole deal.

 

Look out for the ants that mine those nasties, and kill them ;)
 


I'm ready to see cowpies float. Bring it on!

This board is pretty cool... i been growing for the last two years different peruvian chillies.... ive had aji amarillo, aji limo, aji miche and aji arnaucho... ive tried overwintering to no success

Thanks, buddy!  Sounds like you have some experience

with the peruvians!  One of our good friends is Peruvian,

and I give her lots of Aji Amarillo and Rocoto pods.  We 

get awesome food in return!

Yuk!  

good on ya for fighting the good fight.

I agree with Scott's (Devv) post on the next

page.  Neem has worked well for me if

you get the jump on 'em!


I'd think with you coastal types and the copious amounts of precip indigenous to the northwest, you guys greatest foes would be molds and fungi....


Gawd, I love this site! See all those $300 words? I NEVER get to use those on other forums!!

You are not prevaricating, mon ami!  An ample vocabulary should

be exercised at every appropriate opportunity.  Especially with

chiliheads!

 

That being said, during the Spring and late Fall, you are absolutely

correct.  At least in my area, the summers are relatively pest-and-fungi-free,

if you are proactive, and vigilant.

Ciao, Giancarlo! Thanks for stopping by...Always good to her

from you!

You're right as rain, my friend.  No time

like the present!  So far so good,  about 16%

there after 9 days...Good luck getting it in gear!

Good advice, Scottie!  I'd add that a good brand of insecticidal 

soap alternated with the Neem applications can be pretty effective.

Best to get on 'em early and hard to avoid problems later!

 

Glad you are staying warm - you have had some cold weather!

Thank your stars for a covered pergola. Folks around here leave 'em open, let the vines have their way, then call me to paint the damned things.

 

Beautiful setup, Paul! Grow well.

Off to a great start, beautiful yard you have. I've been meaning to cover my pergola with some shade cloth or something. I like what you did with yours though.

Wow I practically live in my backyard when I'm home so I don't think I'd be able to deal with snow like that !!

Nice list, would like to see how they grow out for you. Good luck.

Thank you, Jacques.  I guess your season is in it's second half, now.

The southern hemisphere grows keep me motivated during our winters;

I hope yours is a great one.  Things have slowed down in my germination

chambers, only two new ones yesterday, a Red Habanero and a Fatali.

Much appreciated, buddy.  The varieties that are sprouting are doing well.

Some disappointments, so far; ones I would have expected to do well,

like Caribbean Red Habanero from the Chili Pepper Institute at New

Mexico State, and the F5 PDN x Bonda Ma Jacques.  May have to resort

to the AeroGarden for some more attempts, if these don't pull through in

another week.  The BOC from Refining Fire haven't come through, yet, either.

 

This has been a year for the books weather-wise, for sure.  I think this is the

biggest single snow fall we've had in our neighborhood in 27 years, although

several have come close.  We had 6-8" in our yard, more in some places.

 


Thank your stars for a covered pergola. Folks around here leave 'em open, let the vines have their way, then call me to paint the damned things.

 

Beautiful setup, Paul! Grow well.

Thanks, Eric.  We love the covered deck space.  The next step is to

enclose it so it is a real room in the winter, and can be opened up

in the rest of the year.  We're looking at flexible roll-up type walls and

more permanent framed construction.  I'd like to make it a real hip roof

joined to our regular roof rather than just the canopy sitting on the roof.


Good and early start Paul. Congrats on them first sprouts and good luck further on. Will follow as usual. Love the cups pics with the snow behind :)

Hey, Uros!  So far, so good.  Some varieties aren't popping

for me, but the ones that have look good.  It was pretty

amazing to wake up to a snow-covered yard the other morning.

Usually we just get an inch or so at a time.

 

Looking forward to seeing your grow develop this season, as well, my friend!


Looking good Paul, great start there, should see a good variety and haul from that lot :)

Thanks for the good vibe, James.  It's always a waiting game

this time of season.  Really excited for the MoA Bonnets from

John at Trident Chilis.  Hope you are having fun at your end...


Off to a great start, beautiful yard you have. I've been meaning to cover my pergola with some shade cloth or something. I like what you did with yours though. 

Thanks for visiting, Michael, and for the positivity!  The canopy is nice, but

as I said above, the space needs some walls to keep the windy and rainy

weather out in the winter. Still exploring options there.

 

Having fun with your crossing projects?  You have some great ones going.


Wow I practically live in my backyard when I'm home so I don't think I'd be able to deal with snow like that !!

Nice list, would like to see how they grow out for you. Good luck.

Me, too, Jason!  Fortunately it will be all gone when it warms

up and starts raining in a couple of days!  Then it will be so soggy

it will be impossible to walk around in the yard until Spring.  The

grass gets pretty long by the time it dries out enough to mow!

 

What is growing looks pretty good; hopefully they will all make

it to plantout time in May/June.  Seems like a long way off at

this point!

 

Good luck going forward in OZ!

Hey, Giancarlo - Thanks.  No kidding, snow's still around, too since the temperatures haven't
really been above freezing since it snowed.  The warming trend is supposed to come Sunday/Monday,
although today is beautiful and sunny.  And cold!

My germination rates this season are miserable. 
 
What has sprouted looks promising, and I'll give it the rest another week.
Going to restart some BOC, though, from 2013,
from some seed GeorgiaGrowhead sent me awhile back.  Maybe a
Chocolate Habanero, too, from Refining Fire.  But, I digress   ;)
 
Have put the Manzano / Rocoto sprouts under the cooler lamp of the
AeroGarden.  I always forget they don't respond well to the T5HO
lamps until I finally notice it!  Will post a pic momentarily...
