Last Sunday we had quite a storm come out of the West 60mph winds, lightning, the works. The fence really saved us, although about 13-16 plants blew over and several more were leaning.

Pumpkin BBG, a nice healthy plant but still no pods, and with our forecast of next week to 100's and plus...I donno.

Annuum's we got, these are Big Jim peppers.

Ripen already! Aji Amirillo's

Anaheim peppers

A few BrainReapers...

This B.O.C. has quite a few small peppers on it..

Aji Limo. The other plant is setting nicely now.

Plenty of Poblano's to be had this season.

The Aji Dulce has been a fairly steady producer.

The P. Dreadie has been a bit stingy with it's pods. I have 3 in pots that got their butts kicked in storms. I'm going to grow them out. The dirt plants have a life of when the ripe pods are done, so are they.

Growdown YBS: So far leading the Chinense in productivity; and I started it 30 days after the others.

Here's the plant in it's 100 gal bag. It is the only plant that was damaged in the storm; mainly because of it's height.

No shortage of Bells this season!

Been steady pulling Gochu pods. ;)

PDN x Bonda White living up to it's name. It's leaning from the storms.

Gotta pick in the morning :P

Hi Beer, I'm just outside of Devine. Have a look at greenhousemegastore.com if you're buying some size..

Scott, this is amazing!! What great plants and pods! Still jealous of the size of those poblanos... gotta see how big mine come in this year. My big Jim set a pod a few days ago so I’m looking forward to seeing that one go!

Holy moly.. that growdown plant is a monster. 100 gallon pot?!? I have a ghost pepper in a 30 gallon and I thought that was huge.. haha

What kind of soil do you use for the pots? Would be expensive to fill with all potting soil!

Those bonda crosses are just beautiful.. taking note for next years varieties already haha.

These updates are awesome as usual, it’s so exciting to see other people’s plants producing already! As for me I counted 31 tiny little ghost peppers in my biggest plant this morning so we’re well on our way for being just the “beginning” of the NY grow season!

What’s your favorite pepper of the season so far?

Very nice Scott, those plants are doing fantastic. Quite the little rainshower you had there! Glad it didn't do more damage. I bet the plants loved the water, though!

 

You ever thought about doing misters and shade cloths to keep them productive a little longer when it gets hot? I was looking at some misters the other day for the high tunnels. They blow out mist and fans distribute it, supposed to cool the ambient air by something like 10 degrees Fahrenheit in the vicinity. That might be enough to keep your plants from dropping flowers when it hits the 100's?
