Good. I was afraid he was a goner.
 
I just wanted to share my gift with you, recognize the tradition you've shared with us over the past many months and hopefully put a smile on your face. I actually put my chair here in a place that goes into deep shade around noon.

Thanks, Dub. It's a helluva seat in a beautiful spot. Room for a friend or better, too.  Definitely puts a smile on my face, bud.

I was really surprised to get it through the door. We wrapped him in a king size bed sheet (which was only just barely long enough to go around) to sort of suck in his gut and gently pushed and tugged at either side of the door until he was finally through.  It was like forcing a big marshmallow through a wedding ring.

Wind took two large branches making up pretty much half of one of my plants this morning. Will the pods ripen if I keep the branches?

Sorry to hear about that! If you put the branches in some water and perhaps even some nutes, they should allow the pods to ripen yes.

I'm also rooting for your big plant that's been moved out, hopefully it likes its new home and will blossom out there with all them lovely aphid predators! :)

Thanks, will do.

The deck is crawling with assassin bugs, no aphids there. I hope the big guy will be free of aphids soon. I'm worried about the sun and heat while it acclimates. Going from DWC to a hole in the ground probably isn't easy, either.

Edit: Drat.

Yeah, drat is right.

 

In the past, I have hung broken branches upside

down in the garage, and pods ripened up (if they

had already started). Not sure about green pods.

 

Putting them in water sounds like a

good idea for starters.

I put branches in a bucket of water every year to ripen pods after I cut off said branches to fit the plants in the winter shelter.

Garbage can pods this morning.  They have a more orange look in person.

Lemon Drop this afternoon.  See the ribbons?  I tie them in bows so I can reuse them when they need to be moved.  Damned finches keep untying them.  I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't watched it happen; those ribbons take some force to untie even bows.  Guess I'll have to start knotting them.  They don't even take the ribbons.. They just loose my plants and leave.

Thanks!  Those guys are really something.  I get the distinct impression they're not the least bit afraid of me.
