Here's a photo of the Mad Hatters I grew last year. This particular pepper was a bit taller than most of what I harvested. They weren't Bonnie plants, but F1 seed I'd started from Johnny's. Johnny's describes them as a "slightly hot bishop's crown type."

That's a big sucker!

I have four Bonnie plants this season.  The Dragon Cayenne, a Shishito, a Cow Horn and a Cajun Belle.  Plants are starting to ramp up.  I will post pics once I get some poddage.

we finally started getting decent weather here in the northeast. the month of may was rainy and cold and my plants seemed to be stunted. for the last week and a half the rain backed off and the temps are reaching 80 during the day. the plants are now showing some growth but one is really doing well. the Shishito plant is getting really bushy. compare it to the plant to the right. some of the other plants are just as tall but not nearly as full and bushy. it`s early in the season here and i know things will pick up with my other plants but this thread needed a bump :onfire:

Looking good p3pp3rz!  Glad your weather is coming around.

 

Jeez though, seems every time I turn around I see another reason to kick myself for not growing shishito this season.  :doh:

I bought four pots of bonnie ghost peppers, three of them were doubles, I eventually separated them into their own pots. Earlier this season I planted three of them in a giant patio planter and mixed up a batch of soil to fill it. I think I hit the jackpot with my ratio as they have exploded with growth. Got a few fruits on them for the first time, very slow to rippen.

It's sure has been a rough spring in NE this year. Things are picking up 100+ miles north of you too. Glad to see your plants survived May.


Note to self: Don't panic till August.

i use Alaska Fish, both liquid and pelleted. when i plant out i add a handful of pellets on the top and lightly mix it into the top layer of potting soil and every time it rains or i water them it leaches in a little at a time. i`ll add a second dose to the top in mid july.  with the liquid the mix is supposed to be 1 tablespoon per gallon but i don`t pre mix. i use one of those plastic coffee scoops that always came inside coffee cans back in the old days LOL. it holds maybe 4 tablespoons of fish emulsion. i pour that around the stalk of each plant and every watering it washes down into the potting soil. i have only watered these plants once or twice this year because of the rains we`ve been getting. its my second year with this fertilizer and i`m happy with it.

when Orekoc sent me the mad hatters i had run out of containers so i planted them about 15 feet away in a small spot in the ground in front of some tomato plants. we also have lettuce there. they were planted a week or so after the others so they aren't quite as tall as the others. they are about 15 inches tall. i need to do some weeding, it looks like a jungle in there :lol:  they are a little crowded but not as bad as it looks. 

 

on a side note Orekoc also sent me a bishops crown that he started from seed and that was planted with the mad hatters but for some reason it didn`t like where it was planted and dropped ALL of it`s leaves and died. its the first pepper plant i`ve lost.

Lazy for pics, harvested the broccoli weeks ago.

Made kimchi from the cabbage, best sour fermented batch I've ever made.


Will try and get the peppers and Tom pics this weekend.

i never grew broccoli or cabbage for lack of space. i have been harvesting buttercrunch lettuce and swiss chard along with some cherry tomatoes and jalapenos. there is 1 shishito ready on the plant i have .and there are many small pods and flowers but only 1 lone pod ready to pick. who would pick and blister 1 lone shishito? i would because i`m dying to try them.  :cheers:

seems like the shishitos grew a huge amount in only one day. a lot of pods and flowers on this plant.

first pull from the shishito plant. it looks like it`s going to pump out a decent amount. there is another 10 or 15 pods that are not full size yet and loads of flowers. i`m going to blister these later tonight as a snack and try them for the first time.

a second batch of shishitos today along with the first Mucho Nacho. still green but needed something to make Pico de Gallo. i`ve pulled a couple regular jalapenos in the last week or two but the shishito plant seems like an early producer.

My shishitos were always early, too. How did you like them?

i tried a few that i blistered in a cast iron skillet with EVOO and salt. i like the flavor but being the first time i think i just slightly overcooked them. i added nothing but salt so all i was tasting was the pepper. i will experiment with other recipes i have seen, then i ate one raw just to see how that was and not so good. how do you prepare them?
