 how do you prepare them?

Exactly like that....maybe a bit more cooked, but in a blistering hot cast iron skillet with some EVOO, then salt with some crunchy finishing, or sea salt, after cooking.  They look right.

this one i am confused. anyone have an idea what pepper it is? i tried to keep the tags with each plant but lost a couple. i bought chili red and dragon cayenne which are similar shape but grow upright. these are thin and growing down.

Things really are chugging along for you p3pp3rz!  Those are going to keep you busy when they start ripening.

 

Still really digging that 👻

Mad Hatters are podding up! We are set for high 90s this week, so the plan is to put up some shade cloth tomorrow.

nice! my mad hatters are about 2.5 feet tall and are flowering but still running behind all my other plants. it may be because they are planted in ground with not the best soil.

my first fully ripened red pod of the season today, a fresno.  :party:

 

i`ve been picking shishitos, jalapenos and serranos while still green to eat in foods and salads but this is the first red pod.

Looks like next year's seeds p3pp3rz!  I'm growing a couple plants of QFC (Kroger) band Fresnos this year.  Hoping at least one grows true.

I would love to show you my peppers. Hurricane Barry sent them flying despite being in 5 gallon buckets. No signs of buckets or plants in fields around me either. Pepperless this season unless people on the forums are selling peppers in FRB’s again. Will give em hell again next year.

I only have two remaining Bonnie plants.

Just cant get my plants this yr to actually grow.

I suspect to much blood meal at plant roots when transplanted, despite growing in premium rich potting soil (Fox farm)

I've neglected my grow this yr, lacking in every aspect possible.

Here's my Jalepeno mucho gusto or whatever you call it.

20190728_085002.jpg


And my Cowhorn, nice looking pods but again plant size is far less than it should be.


20190728_085020.jpg

At least I'll get seeds from each and put together a better plan for next season. No bad reflection on bonnie plants, just my laziness getting the better of me this season.

i think that if you are starting with premium potting mix that you don`t need to add blood meal. i add a little bagged compost like black kow or mushroom compost but that is all. with that said i can say some of my plants are doing great and a couple seem to be lagging behind and i`m not sure why. my jalapenos and cowhorns seem to be putting out less pods than past years. i imagine weather plays a part.

i`m starting to get some ripe pods. it`s been one here and there up till now. not all the tomatoes were picked today. we get a bunch daily and throw them on this plate and we snack on and make salads daily trying to use them up.

Just a couple of ripe pods today. i`ve been getting shishitos for a while now but this is the first ripe Habanero, chili red which grows upright, and first ripe serrano. it`s my first year growing habs so i`m looking forward to tasting this one.
