I know they look good, but I think even I can wait long enough to weigh them.

That's impressive!! I don't understand how you have achieved that much growth with 2 months less than us.

 

I just had my first harvest, but I have a lot more pods coming, and the plant is still growing strong.

Soil....

 

Honestly, Im really far behind still. I expected a little more from them early on, but this spring into summer was weird, lots of rain and pounding sun. My chosen plant is in direct, no shade cloth light. Only break it gets is after 3-4pm from the neighboring tree line to the west. I bet there isnt but 400-500 grams on it right now. I chose the wrong one as well, or rather Ive been making sauce and not weighing the other YBSs that seem to be putting out more than this one, but its the helmet head and Id say its become quite a plant. Long ways to go still. Ill update with a weigh in soon

You guys are killing me! Was too lazy to set up my off grid hydro system this year and I'm paying for it. That's really to only way to compete in something like this with the growing conditions I have.

It's still do-able without hydroponics... my chiles are in a raised bed outside, I've only hand-watered as necessary, and the New England climate is cooler than up your way. 3816c1f4c703ca737b73071d3be0e661.jpg

I wouldnt think that a cooler climate would hinder your plant's ability to be competitive at this point in the game...Like Guru stated earlier, I have about 300-400 grams max on my plant and that will be all until this heat wave breaks. I haven't set any new pods in a few weeks. Most of us in the South had a delayed plant out due to unseasonably cold Spring, directly followed by blistering heat! My plants are not happy to say the least.

Just 2 pods left on the plant, and it most likely won't set again until September. I'm heading to the East Coast for close to two weeks. Hope my gals can hang while I'm out misbehaving..


It's all about the pods....
