I just shoot every last one of them with my 12 gauge whenever I walk into the wood. I have not seen any on my yard for a long time.

For the moment we are not using the arduino automation.
We are using an inkbird itc-308. It automatically control the temperature by switching between heating and cooling depending on a temperature threshold.
Well actually we are using the arduino for the linear actuator but we have to manually switch between positive and negative current on the board. I will soon make the same setup than last year.
My setup is pretty redneck, but it work lol
I didn't get enough pressure with one long line of 24 sprinkler so I made two line. Work perfectly now.

After 1 week of hardening, the plants are ready to be transferred to the greenhouse.
There is even a little pepper growing on the hot finger already.
Made a small chance in the air flow to reduce humidity. We got this big blower for free and it is about 3 time stronger than the last one.
I'm being infested by tomatoes until the night are hotter
I will install the auto drip system soon.
For a quick comparison this was may 27th last year
And this was june 17th in 2016

It's almost time to bring the plants outside.
Last week I gave away a lot of peppers to friends.
1x Aji Verde
1x Aji Jobito
1x Thai Orange
2x Yellow Scotch Bonnet
For now I'm hardening the biggest plants.
Temperature is still a little bit cold during the night so I'M not risking it.
Transplanted the biggest peppers last week. They have nice roots density.
Ready for hardening
Also prepared the pot for peppers. I will transfer them next week when night are over 10 celcius.
I chose 24 plants for the greenhouse. ( I lack the space for more )
1x Bishop Crown
1x Red Devil's Tongue
2x Gold Bhutlah
1x 7 Pot Primo
1x Aji Cito
1x Hot fingers
1x Red Dominican Habanero
1x Yellow Scotch Bonnet
2x Yellow 7 Pot Brainstrain
1x Peach Bhut Jolokia
1x Trinidad Moruga Scorpion
I will also bring two plants to my new apartment
I will give away the rest of my peppers to other people
1x 7 Pot Primo ( too small)
1x Hot finger
1x Devil Tongue
That bring the total to 16 plants that I gave away for other to get them addicted to this hobby
