Just could not put a 'like' on that last pic, Jarrod.  Bummer, all right   :mope:

 

Hate wind. 

 

Were the peppers you lost blown over or crushed?  Blow overs can

come back if the lee side roots are intact.  Happened with one of my

Padrones last season.  Cut off all the pods, staked it, and it had time

to become a very productive plant again.

 

Otherwise, everything rollin' right along in your grow - beautiful images,

especially the flower shots.

Yeah, I liked that post instinctively. I hope all is well.

 

The main reason I built the 6' fence on the North and East sides of my garden. We get some serious winds when Ma Nature gets made at Tejas

Thanks Paul. I am actually impressed with the photos from the iPhone. Some good apps for getting that shot in.

 

All is well. It wasn't the tree landing on the peppers that was the problem. It was the sheer strength of the wind, but at least it only lasted about 30min.

 

Thankfully didn't loose any plants, but did have to collect some pods that were ripped clean off.

Sorry for the pics!?!?!?!

 

NEVER be sorry for photos that great! 

 

All is looking fantastic, although that tree falling is a real bummer, hope the damage wasn't too severe.

 

great pod pics - any idea what that Mystery Super Hot might be? And those Ebony Fire's are right on point - I was kind of expecting a bit of variation as I thought that they may have been an F1 cross, making these f2. I'll have to grow it again next season, pods aren't anthing special flvour-wise, but are quite sweet. Mild- almost medium heat. But I should let you figure that out for your self!

 

Anyway, keep up the great work - and keep them pics rolling! :onfire: :party:

 

All The Best, TBG.

Perfect example!

 

I really love the flavor of the Reapers, but I can pass on the pain when tasting them. They do really well in sauces ;)

Thanks TBG. Its part of the fun for the future looking over old glogs.

Thanks Trident. I cant wait for that to ripen up fully. Definitely going to keep the seeds from that pod.

Bring in the pain.
