Jumped in with both feet this year and have a couple thousand pepper plants, of various types, growing in our field. We're also on track to get organic certified by August 1 if nothing goes wrong between now and then.
Anyway, full details of the farm, from planning, to seeding, to present day weed picking and general weather griping (!), are available on the GLOG right here on THP: http://thehotpepper....-2018-the-farm/
I'm taking requests for produce now. Our Habanero crop is spoken for already, but we will have a wide variety of peppers available - we planted between 25 and 250 plants of each type, so there'll be plenty to go around. Hoping we might get any of you hot sauce or flake or other vendors interested, but we'll also direct ship for smaller orders. We're several weeks off from harvest yet but if anyone wants stuff in bulk, now is the time to work out any details on pricing and quantity (which may be dependent on whether we can harvest these as USDA certified organic after our inspection is done, and / or contingent on that).
We've got the following varieties growing, with the approx # of plants currently in the dirt noted (so you have some idea of what we can supply at harvest):
7-pot brainstrain (red) (25+ plants)
7-pot primo (red) (~50 plants)
