Mine are in pots also on my deck. Very pretty plants, cool to see more people growing them!b2ad713e6401096bc6b8657086aa7784.jpg78401cfd18ff1a9fc43b1147f82913a8.jpg

Sorry about the deer hitting your plants.
 
Congrats on the move and getting the garden up and running. Your plants will do fine ;)
 
I'm jelly about all that rain you're getting!

Thank you sir! It's pretty exciting to see pods forming finally after all the up's and down's this season!

Nice work, and BOY, do I hear you on the deer. They topped all my Aji Amarillos and Mama's bell plants, decimated just about everything else but tomatoes.
 
I'm sure the U.P. is filthier with the cloven-hoofed rats than where I am, kep de battle de blood clot, mon!!

Yeah, they eat everything! Even the landscaping bushes and plants!

Lesson learned though.

I'll probably always have some in pots just for backup/more control over them if the weather is too wet or too dry for long periods and just keep them in the garden like I am now.

Always learning new things every day!

Looking great!
Is the Blue Christmas all ornamental?
I see it got the pretty pot!

Thanks! It's not strictly ornamental, but it's the most colorful variety I have once the pods start changing and with the purple leaves it looks cool, so that's why they have the fancy pots on the deck.

So I left the potted plants outside of the garden fence in the yard, apparently that was a mistake, the deer ate some of them a few days ago... they'll come back nice and bushy, but I likely won't get any pods off them this season. So I moved them into the garden I between rows now.

Here are some pics of plants that are getting some pods now. Plants need to be fed, but it hasnt stopped raining here in a week now and we're due for almost 2 more weeks of rain, so it feels pointless to water them more just to feed them, but I'm going to do that tomorrow anyways.

Maybe a pod that finally took on the mutant hab?

Jalapenos and stuff have pods too, but those aren't as exciting so I don't bother with any pics of them.


Here are my two Blue Christmas in nicer pots now...

I think that's about it for now folks. Hopefully this rain let's up soon. Thank God I have sandy soil right now.
