#1566353 Edible nightshades?

Posted by peppamang on 08 July 2018 - 10:07 AM

Hey yall. what are ground cherries? 


I've grown otricoli berry before. It's an orange edible variety of black nightshade. Grows stupid fast. Overgrew a 7 gal bucket in a couple months. Waterloss through transpiration actually did it in because I couldn't water it often enough last summer (got so big it needed to be watered twice a day). The little fruits were good but strong. I liked a handful in spaghetti sauce but otherwise it was hard to find a use for them. 


Walchit gave me some shwartzbeen that I just remembered I had after reading this, so I'll sow those this week and see what I can do with them. 


Growing some mainstram nightshades too. tomato, potato, pepper of course. 


I'm pretty interested by wild varieties and rarer capsicums. Had a whole 72 tray of wilds this year but ended up dropping them and had no idea what was what. Those anomalums are pretty rad. Gunna save the link and check them out for next year.

Potatoes in growbags starting to flower. 



Tomatoes doing well too. 



Funky fruit on this tomato -



Plucked a few radishes too. Spiciest radishes I've ever eaten. 



All the leftovers in the secondary garden doing well too.

Just got back from a little vacation. Had a neighbor watering for me but the grass really took over. The previous owners last year let the yard go to seed before we took over. It's been a pain in the butt but I should have done more weeding before I left. 



Here's hogsweed starting to throw some pods. 



NuMex Sunrise putting out a couple too. 



Here's a yellow manzano I overwintered. Only got 1 pod off of it last year. It was in a growbag. Here it is in April after sitting outside too long and getting snowed on.

#1559336 What bugs are these?

Posted by peppamang on 11 June 2018 - 12:01 PM

Pretty sure that's lacewing eggs, they eat aphids. I'd leave them.

Hey! I hope you are all having a good start of the season. Loving this warm weather so far. 


First year having an in-ground garden. No longer living in the NJ pine barrens with that awful sandy "soil". Living right out of Philly these days and the soil is nice clay. Peppers seem to love it. 


Seeds sowed mid March. Started seeing hooks in April, and they hit dirt the day before Mother's day. 


This year, 

Aji Jobito x2

PDN x Bonda White

PDN x Bonda Purple 

NuMex Lemon Spice

NuMex Sunrise

Cappuccino Bonnet

7 Pot Cinder

Aji Painapple

Bubblegum Pumpkin

CGN 21500

Aji White Lightning Bolt



Lemon Drop

Purple UFO


Aji Dulce

Aji Pineapple

Pasilla De Oaxaca

Sugar Rush Creme

D3 Hogsweed


It's also my first year expanding to other veggies. Lots of volunteers came up through the compost pile, so anything that I could identify got planted too. So far, I've scavenged a potato, 2 kinds of squash, 3 tomato plants, an onion and two scallions. I planted carrots, lettuce and radishes in some pots this week. 


Time for the pictures. 


Here's my compost pile. It was here when we moved into this place at the end of last summer. It's been great to spread just about anywhere. Flowers and veggies love it. It's crazy how much can go into the compost instead of being thrown away. 




Here's a shot of the garden today before some rain. Spread a little compost and did some light weeding. The bind weed is non-stop. The grass went to seed before we moved in last year and that is seemingly neverending too. It's something I'm working on. 




Second smaller garden that all the extras got shoved into. I figured I'd see what they do. 




Some nice purples. 





All the volunteers and a couple tomato plants my neighbor gave me went into some fabric pots from last year. I really liked these. If you haven't tried them I do recommend. 




First tomato flower. 




Overwintered c. pubescens that is doing well in the ground. 




Have a chill day yall.
