Orange bonnet. The heat wave a couple weeks ago was really hard on him.
Orange bonnet pods. Doesn't really show in the picture, but there are SO many. Will have to take them down and process them soon.
Yellow bonnet. Gave these away because I just couldn't. Friend who took them says he sucks at gardening, but likes to make fermented sauces. The cooked sauce I've made from them is really tasty.
This is the clone of the brown DouglahT vole plant I kept. Not sure I'll get pods from this guy.
Taking down bowlfuls like this.
I've got more oranges than I know what to do with. They make delicious powder. I made one batch of sauce from them (WAY hotter than the yellow bonnets) and have dried all the rest for powder. I sat for three hours seeding and slicing last weekend.
Haven't been around much; haven't had much to say. A little blasphemy: I'm really enjoying the powders and sauces I've made, but I'm getting sick of growing and processing chili peppers. I just bit off too big a bite for my first go at this. I will scale things back considerably next year.
