Also making a base for a new greenhouse I bought. 

 

It's 100% aluminium so no rusting and has double wall polycarbonate panels. It's used so I will have to change some panels.

The golden buthlah in the last picture are in the middle . There is only two of them. They are yellow, but the yellow is like limon so really flashy. (unusual for 7 pot) 

Got the seeds from pepper north, but they are only a variety of 7 pot with a cool color.

You seem to be doing fairly well with fatalii. This is one of the only variety I'm having trouble year after year.

 

My two plants died this year.
Last year one plant survived, but the other one only produced 10 pods.
 

Maybe next year, but I will probably buy some seeds from pepperlover, because mine got 20% germination rate.

I still have a shit ton of peppers left to ripe.

I hope I will be able to stretch my season with a heater in the greenhouse.

Also some peppers are flowering again. Should I remove the flowers to let the plant focus on the pods already there?

Today harvest (2018-05-25)

 

Take note that the 7 pot primo and the ghanghis khan didnt grow true to their pheno. 

Also the scoville unit was for my friends and instagram and are really approximative ;)

The best looking brainstrain

 

 

ktISonJ.jpg

 

This one is supposed to be a brainstrain, but the pods on this plant are not bumpy at all. Cool looking and I saved the seeds.

Also I put all the "non-bumpy brainstrain" in the golden bhutlah stack which I'm sure is just a cool name for yellow 7 pot lol

Ill be making a shit load of powder in the next days.
