Plants look fantastic! The snow, not so much... i'm hoping to be done with snow for the rest of the year. Never was a big fan of gulash. My step mother used to make a terrible version that turned me off from it.

Thanks! I hope soon to move them on car park but then i'll have light issues... And it's still too cold.
That's too bad for gulash! I've eaten it fist time jsut some years ago to my uncle along one of my fav dishes (donkey stew). I liked better gulash. Also he had to use potatoes because ha said he made it too hot. To me it was just right on that. :D

Great looking pics as usual Gianarlo!  If the women you went hiking with liked your chili enough to want to make it themselves, it must have been good indeed... not that hiking all day in the cold didn't make it taste even better! :P

Thanks Rick!
I just told the guys that after a hike probably they would find good even a shoe sole. :D

That's a nice looking Pubiscens! How long ago did you start it?

Plants look great Giancarlo! And I'm glad everyone liked the chilli too. You alway know it's good if you're being asked for the recipe ;) 

But Ragu? LOL, a dirty word in my house :shh:


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

Thanks!

 

Here a sunbath:

Chinense aren't huge but i like that are dense, more large than high.

 

Also rightmost CAP363 is setting pods!!!!

That night there was full moon and clear, calm, weather...

I took a trip with friends to val Formica (i went there a month ago).

We headed to Mandriolo peak on late afternoon:

This one just before night:

Descent with moonlight has been really cool while other people was going up.

We didn't have snow rackets that time...

 

At Larici shelter we drank a well deserved bombardino:

That was a strong one!

I like that last round of pics Giancarlo! Nice that you're starting to get pods on your C. Pubiscens plants, more beautiful pics of the Italian Alps, and I'd never heard of a Bombardino before... I'll have to look up the recipe next Christmas. ;)

Very entertaining log, Giancarlo!  As always your Pizza

shots really get my digestive juices flowing!  The chili

doesn't look too bad, either   ;)   Nice mountain pics, too.

 

Your pepper plants are looking awesome out in the sun!

Thanks!

Now last repot and last snow!

I have to give away 3 plants to a relative, i wanted to wait till plant on ground time but i need room.

Zuzqua are bigger than Serrano.

Cap 363 think that growing larger is better than higher.

Some leaves on chinense have some severe sunburn but plants still are without problems.

Now i could tranfer all on car park that it should be enough hot on night but i don't know how to hang light and i don't know if temperature difference is still too high.

 

Last winter hike on Cima D'Asta group, nice 2 days:

This is Cima D'Asta. I hope to go there in June if there's room on advanced hiking course.

Reminds me of hiking in our own Cascade Mountains,

as well as Eagle Cap and Trinity Alps in Oregon and

Northern California. I always loved the transition from

bare ground to snow, seems kind of surreal "  :high: ?"

Not really, but it's a great reminder that you are in the

wilderness, essentially.
