Man, those green house plants are huge! How old are they?

You can go to the beginning of my glog, about post #5 was when the pepper plants went into the net pots. The tomato plants were much later.

The Kratky plants in the greenhouse are growing like mad even in the heat now. They have all grown about a foot and really filled out in the last 10 days. Between 90 and 100 degrees many days in the greenhouse lately.

Oh My WORD!!!!!! to get a Fraction of that harvest from my Moruga Scorpions would be worthy of backward somersaults and major Beer drinking spree....... Very, VERY Nice!!!!!!!
 


I expect to get 1 or 2 more pulls like that before we get the hard freeze here. Maybe I will count and weigh them to see what I actually get off of that plant.

Wow!  Your garden is amazing!  I'm so jealous....mine is such a bust this year, with all the rain we've had.  I just went out and bought some Roma tomatoes, and it's killing  me to have to buy tomatoes!   :banghead:


Thank you. I try to experiment a little every year, then try to remember what worked better and try to forget the bad results. Sorry to hear your tomatoes didn’t do well, I think I have more than I will get processed. Probably because I planted too many plants!

Love how your pepper plant looks. Did you prune all the leaves from the bottom of the plant?


Yes, the plants all look good now. All of my Kratky plants are currently going through a growth spurt. I did not prune the leaves, when you move them to different containers they get a little shocked and drop some leaves, usually from the bottom. I moved these two times.

Posted by skullbiker on 04 August 2018 - 02:18 PM

Has anyone else had this and like me, wished they could make something very similar for home use. I have never gotten into much sauce making but I really, really like this stuff and would like to make some for my home use. Any of you sauce people out there have any instructions or help on how I could make something reasonably close to the taste of this?

I have several plants growing from World Record Big Jim seed that are all over 3 feet tall with the one with the Robin nest in it about 4 feet tall. A few years ago I had a couple of them in Kratky that were almost 5 feet tall.

Partial Kratky update. A look from the outside shows the tomato plants about ready to push the roof off!
