Matt you're getting some sweet looking Pods man. Can't wait to see more. Finishing my move tomorrow and then it time to start all over again. I'm actually pretty excited to plot out where my brother and I are going to grow next season.

Can't wait for move pod reviews too. Keep'em coming.

Lookin good little bro. Can't wait to get up there man. Hopefully I can successfully get some of my peppers out of the ground to bring with me.
I also think its is a Habanero... When I get up there we need to Pot it up so it can get huge. Keep up the great work.

Another update.

Also guys I'm relocating to ATL, GA and looking for the best way to dig up some of my plants.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also looking for some good 7 pot/pod recipes if any of you know some good ones.

You guys are the best thanks again for viewing.

Looking great! I had some issues with my maters cracking last season. It was more apparent in the huge heirlooms, but some of my Romas still had some cracking.

Besides that, the Peppers look amazing! Isn't it a great feeling seeing all those things startin to pop. Keep it up!


Feels amazing sir. I have another one of my "Mystery Peppers" that just set fruit so I guess we'll find out soon or later what it is.


Hey how's your goccio d oro looking. Mines sick. HoPe it recovered. Good grow.


Same here. I believe some type of bugs are getting to mine tho. I hope it produces something. :(

Pods are looking good. Too much rain on the maters will cause them to split. I like your sticky footed friend.


Yeah I'm guess that's what happened. Had a week and a half of rain from the tropical storm/hurricane. My podded plants aren't doing so great from it which is weird.

cracking in tomatoes are usually caused by over watering (also caused by rain) when ripening.

Thats my experience so far, good looking garden you have! I also have a black beauty egg plant going, does it take long to set fruit?


My Black Beauty egg plant took forever to set fruit. It dropped a ton of flowers before I finally got one. And its still dropping them.

These things are starting to look scary. I love it...

And some others. Sorry about the blurriness. The lighting was really playing with the Camera.

A pic of one of the White Bhut.

Posted by TheAmatureGreenThumb on 12 June 2012 - 07:09 AM

I just might do that too. I have a Poblano right next to it in the garden and its also been slacking of fruit sets.



:pray: Just one that's all I ask is just one HUGE harvest of Goccia D'oro and Poblanos. That's it nothing big just HUGE!!!


#638296 STC3248, Just Another Grow Log! Holiday Harvest!

Posted by TheAmatureGreenThumb on 12 June 2012 - 06:06 AM

My Goccia D'oro will not set a fruit. No matter how much I finger bang it's flowers it just won't set. :P

Anyways man things are looking good keep up the great work and thanks again for the seeds.

Shane your Bell Peppers look awesome man. My Bells just started to get around half the size of yours and then they just kind of stop. And those purple ones look awesome. Do they ripen Purple or are they just purple throughout?

The rain let up a little again this morning so I got a few more photos for yall. Hope you enjoy.

Posted Image
Sweet Bell pepper. They look like they may finally get to actual size instead of mini.

Posted Image
Look at all my Jalapenos. :D

Posted Image
Mammoth Jalapenos... Can't wait to make some Chipotle and Jalapeno poppers.

Some Non-pepper pics.

Posted Image
I believe this is a Beef Steak Tomato.

Posted Image
Black Beauty Egg Plant... This is my first fruit set. Finally I've been waiting so long for one to set.
Oh and those are some Yellow Bell Peppers in the background.


Alright guys thanks again for viewing.

I was pretty excited to see what I think is a Yellow 7 Pod\Pot pod today. I'm pretty excited about it. I'll make sure to take some pics when I can actually capture it with my phone. :dance:


Guys I was wondering what is the best way to make Chipotle peppers?
Any secrets, recipes or things I should know. Thanks for the help.

I'm back. Dag it has been a while since I've been on here. I'm sorry for that guys. Here are some pics.

Lots of Jalapenos ( this picture wouldn't load)

Some Jalapenos... I have so many now that I've potted him up.

Posted Image
And just another shot of them.

Posted Image
I believe this is my Yellow 7 Pod. Again I lost the tag for it. :(

Posted Image
I'm pretty sure this is my Giant White Hab. Can't wait I just got a bloom so we should know soon.

Posted Image
And this plant just keeps on giving. I've already gotten 4-6 peppers off it.
And it looks like I'll have many more in the near future from all the buds coming in.

Posted Image
And These are my White Bhuts. They are looking great and finally have some buds coming in. Crossing my fingers for a lot of peppers from these guys.

Alright guys that's my up date for now. I might post a few pod pics tomorrow.

Thanks for viewing.

Damn Matt you're lookin' like a beast now.

I have the hardest time with my iPhone and not getting my fingers in the way when filming. I swear its like I always grap the lens.

Lookin good tho kid. Can't wait to see how things look in a month.

Alright guys more pod pron.

Posted Image
Ok so my label was wrong this can't be an Orange Hab. I've never seen an Orange Hab reach for the sky like that.
Any guesses what I have here guys?? Hungarian Hot Wax??

Posted Image
This one is actually looking more like an Orange Hab.

Posted Image
A group shot of the Cayennes.

Posted Image
Here is a shot of my Sweet Banana peppers. Grown up side by side.

Posted Image
And we have another Changling on my Bhut Jolokia. :D

Posted Image
And because I still think it awesome. My Green Tomatillo. Look at all those buds by my finger.




Great photo man. Wallpaper worthy.

Let's see some more. I am really interested in those white Bhuts. Got any ripe ones you can take a photo of?


Thanks Matt. I don't have any White Bhuts yet. I feel like I stunted there growth cause I put them out in the garden after only 3 or so days of hardening off and then we had some crazy strong winds come through. But I just checked on them today and I'm seeing some new growth so hopefully soon we should be seeing some pods.

Alright guys thanks for stopping by. I feel like Mr. Rogers saying that. lol.

This is a little something that should make everyone laugh.
