The Reaper leaves look quite promising (i.e. it could be a proper Reaper.)  Exciting stuff!

No kidding there Mitzi

 

I have not ever seen a stalk as thick as that Reaper from seed - that's why I made sure to post the last pic - so one could easily see that. The leaves are indeed big ol' "palm fronds" - but if that stalk is any indicator of what may come, I'd say the plant is expecting some WEIGHT to be hanging. I'm crossing my fingers like crazy. So much so that I can't even believe I can type this well ! lol

So here's where things are at in this early part of August. Took these photos yesterday (Aug 6th, 2019) throughout the day.

 

The pots on the deck railing are the only ones that really get sunlight.

 

So here's them, and note the Reaper on the far right how it just looks happy - like it's doing jumping jacks or something. I'm pointing that out for a reason...

In the evening I notice the Reaper goes to sleep. But every morning I look out even before the sun comes up and it's already up doing exercises again ~

So here's the barrels - this is barrel 1 and the only plants that are doing anything are the store-bought anaheim...

You can really see how the super-stressed Reaper seedlings AND even the store bought Reapers just didn't quite get going. Oh well...

Barrel 1's anaheim flowers

Barrel 2

And for fun Aneheim flowers up close

Even closer - for CaneDog

I did look at the Reaper on the railing this morning and I saw the flower petals did fall off leaving the start of it's first pepper (I guess). I can only hope that was aided by my flicking the flower gently to knock pollen around in it yesterday.

That's awesome JJ.  I was looking at the first not-close-up photo thinking to myself, "damn, that's a great picture and really well focused" and all that, and then I saw the next photo caption and you cracked me up.  Man, the white is sooo white on those.

 

Great to see things happening.  It's almost as though summer started Aug 1 this year around here, so hoping for a good rest of the season to see things pan out.

I figured you'd like that - even considered getting a magnifying glass to snap pics through, but F that - lol

 

And summer started about 3 weeks ago here in Minnesota. Deluged in rain still, but at least there was heat.

 

Here's a pic of the Reaper on July 8th - and it didn't really start moving until July 18th - exactly 3 weeks ago...

Reaper on July 18th - exactly 1 week and 3 days later than the above - and coincidentally, exactly 3 weeks ago from today... dun dun dun: Start of Summer !

Hey there, fellow Minnesotan!  :cool:

 

Have you thought of moving this to the Glog forum? Or rather starting a new thread there? Kind of odd to have it here. All these gorgeous pictures, it's a shame not to have it in with everyone else's glogs.

Hello back towards you, Fish !

 

I just went on since the beginning and figured if a mod stepped in and re-directed this to where ever it should be - then that would be that...

SO - I went to Hatch for the Chile Festival.

 

It is a nice town and REALLY gears up in peppers during the Labor day weekend - I am very certain the restaurants all pull out their "Chile Festival" menus that are the same menu with higher prices shown. Nothing wrong with that in my opinion !

 

The next 3 (or more) posts  - since I can't post DIDDLE without an "extreme membership" (makes me wonder why I even bother to post at all really) - will be of the Hatch Chile Festival that I deemed cool to share....
