Looking fantastic, my friend! I hope everything produces beyond your expectations. I can't wait to see how that SB7J grows for you. Congratulations on the retirement and that's one pretty dog!

Stellar looking plants John!
 
I'm looking forward to seeing their progress.
 
And much congrats on the retirement! So both of you get to retire at the same time? I'm sure it will be great not to care what day of the week it is.
Mine's not that close, but also not so far off, and, you can surely bet I'm counting the days. ;) 


Thanks Devv ... yes we will both retire together I could have gone two years ago but she was only six and would have been re-handled .. I have had her since a year old it's going to take her a while to adjust to not getting up at 05.15 all the time as she does now

+1 on what Scott says (except the part of counting the days, at least for me)! Congrats!


Thanks just finished potting up with my favourite Italian brew ... this photograph is for you ... it's a 660ml bottle

Up-pots are looking stellar John! How much longer 'til they hit the dirt, or are you gonna keep them potted up in your pop-up cloche?

Great news that you'll be retiring soon! We won't be anytime soon unless I hit the lottery. We're 8 years into a 30-year mortgage on our energy efficient house. That's why my veggie garden is so important to us. ☺

Plants look massive compared to mine but then again you have bigger pots and mine are in 9cm and 1 litre pots, repotting in to 8 litres Rhizo pots soon for their final home I think, will be nice to see your progress, all look really healthy.

Been slacking lately so here is an update... weather is good we are having a warm bank holiday but the night time temperatures are just a tad low so it's in/out as the plants harden off. Manageable when young but now they are gaining growth it's the old adage "why did I choose so many varieties"

Hardening off in the morning sun

These are only a few but impressed with the canopy of my crossing "Salem"

Salem is an unintentional cross "Obeah x (Butch T x NagaBon)" .... Obeah a form of West African sorcery used by slaves against their white masters ... keeping the sorcery/whitchcraft theme I went with Salem famous for its 1692 witch trials ...

Been a while so I can only apologise but all is well in southern England with temperatures this week hitting nearly 30c ... all plants 38 different varieties planted in their final pots with 18 in the polytunnel and the rest dotted about the garden

D3 Omni-Bonnet front centre

D3 El Scorponero front centre and left ... Obeah to the right

Personally for me the "Purple Ghost Scorpion" takes some beating a beautiful flower and showing some great shaped pods

Fabric pots ... MA Peach SB, Papa Joe's SB, 7pot Jonah Yellow x SB, Sweet Moruga SB, Jamaican Hot Chocolate and MA Pixie

Time for an update... weather in England has been phenomenal as summer standards go the polytunnel is like a jungle with Chris Fat Red dominating closely followed by DM Chocolate Bhutlah

More a darker red than purple inner but only a junior pod

Saving the best for last Bhuter's SB7J having grown this variety for many seasons I have never had such perfect shaped pods. Thanks for the seed Adam

:woohoo: :woohoo:
Yes!!!! I'm super-stoked that you didn't get crossed seeds!!! You are most welcome, my friend! I love this variety. Firm and crunchy with an amazing flavor! And it might be a little spicier than you're expecting. Kinda leanin' towards the Jonah in that area. Very, very nice, John!!!
