If these Jimmeh Nawdellas taste anything as gnarly as they look I'll be growing a whole row of them next year.

All these guys are doing well, the mystery Mexicans smuggled in are all fowering now, but no pods yet. These Antakes have the biggest blossoms I've seen yet!!

We've gotten past the point where pepper shoots taste good to the deer around here, but we have deer who taste good to critters like this guy. Pic is from right behind the 8th acre...

The trail cam is too far away for a good shot, not to mention this is a compressed pic file, but you get the basic outline, anyway. Varmint rifle is at the ready, our dogs are too old to need be messing with the 'yotes!!

 

It was feeding day today, fish guts for everyone!! :beer:    :sick:

 

The Nardello's are a sweet pepper, and yours look great, really good stuff ;)

 

At work, which is close to the wild nature, we've always had a ton of feral cats, birds and squirrels. We saw a mature fox in a tree last week and then we realized the cats, kittens, squirrels, and birds are not around anymore..

 

Mother nature doing her thang...

Plants look great!

 

Keep them gals going and sometime in September they should set again.

Just 2 pods left on the plant, and it most likely won't set again until September. I'm heading to the East Coast for close to two weeks. Hope my gals can hang while I'm out misbehaving..

Had the organic audit yesterday. Took about 5 1/2 hours. 

 

The only citation I got on the entire operation, was I didn't have statements on file from pepper seed vendors or individuals who I got seeds from, indicating the seeds were not treated with fungicide / pesticide (Captan, etc). 

 

I have to collect those statements and forward 'em on to the Powers that Be. So some of you who sent seeds my way, might be getting a PM :)

 

Other than that, looks like I managed to do everything I was supposed to do?!

 

If all goes well we will have ~136 varieties of pepper seeds grown in isolation and certified as organic seed stock by 2019 growing season. I'll be starting the next batch of isolation peppers in a week or so. They'll be grown entirely indoors, which is about as isolated as I can hope to get them. Hopefully enough time to get pods harvested in Dec or Jan for seeds - although might be too late for some growers (Scott, you sow before most of the rest of us do with your early Tejas season)

 

 

I start in late November-early December, no worries..My seeds were 100% organic. I you need a letter I'll get it out to you. After the 19th I'm on the road until August 1st. Road trip! Misbehavin'!
