Just loved setting up the watering system for the plants.Talk about taking the worries and time needed to gauge when your plants needed water.I was watering before 6 am work which meant the plants on the front end got their needed drink.Where the ones on the backend always got cheated because I had a timeclock that needed to be punched.The 2nd best garden addition was my cultivator that attaches to my 4stroke weedeater motor.Fits my beds and has power.

Wouldn't it be great to have a little 1/4" shower over night

and 75˚ and sunny during the day every day or two! I could

grow peppers in a climate like that!

 

I have one of those 4 stroke motor trimmers - getting a

cultivator for it sounds like a good idea. How deep can you 

cultivate with it? Also a chain saw attachment would be awesome!

Okay, Sim, you are embarrassing me   :oops:  but thanks for the kind words.

 

Looks like a few days of Summer weather is just around the corner -

Hope you are getting some decent weather there, my friend.

I love "fire-and-forget" irrigation setups Paul... Good job! Bonus that you're picking pods too. Way to go!

Not sure I would call it "picking", Rick 😁 But
the pod is delicious. Am going to have some
on a burger tonight!

I'm okay with automation- now I just need some
AI, and I'm good to go!

hail in the forecast today Paul.  :pray:

Dang, you could have gone all day without saying
that, my friend 😐. Here's to dodging the bullet!

Hope that's still looking good for you, Jeremy.

 

The hot weather has been tough on my plant-outs - days

in high 80's, but at least nights are warm - 60's.  A cool day

today,then warming back up to mid to high 80s for Mem Day

Weekend.

 

F5 PDN x Bonda Ma Jacques getting some much needed sun.

The Scorpions have lost most of their leaves, and have really

pretty much stopped growing.  But the sister pod to the one

I mentioned earlier has ripened up nicely!

Will post some more pics later on today.

Paul, 

 

I planted out a lot of them yesterday before the wind hit. They got a not so warm welcome to their new home. It was brutal, actually but they seemed fine this morning.

Paul, 

 

I planted out a lot of them yesterday before the wind hit. They got a not so warm welcome to their new home. It was brutal, actually but they seemed fine this morning. 

I feel your pain, my friend.  The wind really blew the long

branches around, but they seem to be okay this morning.  

This has been a tough start for the papers - cold nights

followed by hot days and then more hot and dry days and

wind.  If they survive May, they only have the June doldrums

to go through, then Summer season!  Here are a few recent

pix.

 

A couple of yellow, wan-looking examples. Most of these

leaves are gone, now.  This is a Fatali.  I think the incessant

rain and cool weather leached lots of nutrients from the

containers.  Have side dressed everything with either

Chicken or Steer manure and compost, and fed with

some high PK fertilizer.

MoA Bonnet.

_DSC3216web_zpsxk7zyjxr.jpg

 

Some pod action.  The F5 PDN x Bonda really getting to its final color.

_DSC3217web_zpsc9t3puxu.jpg

 

The Aji Amarillo are podding right along. Rather than

conical young pods, these are cylindrical and pointy.  

I chose the seeds from a 61/2 inch by 11/2 inch pod.  

Looks like these are following suit.

_DSC3218web_zpshsnsvjjz.jpg

 

Thanks for checking in - will try to get more pix up soon.  

Have been busy trying to get three month's worth of yard

chores done in two weeks!

Thanks, Tristen - hoping for the best.  Am enjoying this stretch of nice weather.

 

A few random pix:

 

Fatalis, almost nude, but have little pods on them, some

of which are starting to elongate.  Maybe there is hope!

_DSC3224web_zpsrc28uhk0.jpg

 

The first Fatali pod getting bigger.

_DSC3225web_zps65p6b6ld.jpg

 

Here's one of the Aji Lemon Drops - pretty skimpy looking, but

two ripening pods. This is the one with 1/4 of the canopy missing.

_DSC3226web_zpsf7jxau7c.jpg

 

This BOC from Refining Fire has a mutant growth habit.  Every

node is just packed with flower buds and growth tips, very dense.

It takes a while for a branch to emerge from the chaos.

_DSC3227web_zpsh8ehymha.jpg

 

PDN x Bonda F5-1 has lots of little pods.  Some beginning to extend.

_DSC3228web_zpsjym2swmk.jpg

 

MoA first pod ripening up.  Another plant that got hit pretty hard.

_DSC3229web_zpsqipcucxj.jpg

 

Five Aji Amarillos in #2 nursery pots.  Just an experiment to

see if I can get pods from them in the greenhouse this Fall.

_DSC3231web_zps0buz6dqr.jpg

 

Scorpion hammered by weather showing some nice new growth.

_DSC3233web_zpscqjabouy.jpg

 

The ripe pod on another Scorpion. 

_DSC3234web_zpsblecxsgh.jpg

 

Doing the same with these plants in #3 pots, as with the Ajis above..

_DSC3235web_zpsgk00bq0c.jpg

 

Thanks for looking in.  Summer is creeping our way.

Hoping to avoid the June doldrums this year   ;)

Nice healthy plants Paul.

 

I know they got beat up some (join the crowd), but they will come back big time. That and you have all summer to attend to them with your mad gardening skills. ;)

 

They will make you happy!


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

Gee Paul... we both need some more degree days! My Yellow Scorpions look like your Fatalis right now... skinny and deeply fluted. Spring is here, now c'mon summer! :P
