Sorry your weather has been such a feed bag this season, Scott.

Darn Mother Nature, doesn't she know that chilis need just the

right mix of rain and sun, spread out evenly over time?

 

I'll send some more PDN cross seeds for next season, buddy!

Gotta get you growing those out and getting tons of purple or

white pods!

 

Thanks Paul!

 

It's been a bit disappointing, but next year is another shot ;)

 

I gave it my all, but Mother Nature has to help some too..

 

I really appreciate the offer, especially since I was counting on the fall harvests for seed stock. Bad choice this go-round..

I haven't been keeping my Glog up the way I wanted to this year, unfortunately. All is good in my garden, though. I just picked these this morning. It took quite a while and there is still an aji charapita bush loaded with pods to pick at when I get bored.

It looks like I will have plenty of peppers to eat this Winter😀

 

Well done this year Dale! That harvest is killer for sure. ;) :P

Hope the sun is now shining for you Scott

 

Thanks John!

 

It's trying, but then a shower comes through. It's better though ;)

 

I haven't taken pics because the garden is just sitting there...kind of saying "help!"

My year was 2015. I counted 403 pods on one harvest. That's a ton for my little garden. And they kept producing.

I hope things are going well for you, Scott! I haven't caught up yet, but did you do a second tomato crop?

 

Hey Adam!

 

I feel the plants are starting to come around. We're at 23.3"s of rain in the last 4 weeks. I'm hoping I can get some pods going ASAP or it will be too late. I lost 3 plants, and 2 others look like sheet.

 

I did learn a lot this first year of torrential rains. Now I want an electric retractable roof for the garden...LOL

 

They make those right?

 

No fall maters, no time with such a crazy year. I will be trying out those seeds you sent for sure in the spring!

In the light of recent events, aka. Guru's last harvest  ;)  (Damn, that's impressive). I went out and emptied my plant for ripe pods. I won't have many more ripe pods, unless the weather turns around.
 
I'm so sorry to hear about your rain-problems Scott! We've had a lot of rain too, but nothing like what you're describing. 
 
 
New total: (2166) + 814 = 2980 g
 
I'm honestly stunned by this amount of peppers! My freezer is full of frozen YBS, my cabinet is full of fermenting YBS, my stomach can't handle any more YBS. (Maybe tonight again)
 
Talking about huge pods - My heaviest pod weighed in at 22g. I can't fit that thing in my mouth (not that i wanted to).
My avg. weight is just above 16g pr. pod for this harvest - 50 pods in total.

Sorry about the up and coming freeze. No fun there.

 

Got snow shoes for the mud? ;)

Oh yeah, way to much rain this September. I'm afraid it has hampered any chances of a fall crop, 21.5"s so far since the 3rd..

 

Watch out for mold setting in on the Onions during a wet harvest time. We've had that the last 2 seasons. They pull up so much water, and a month later the mold starts growing.

 

The last 2 years we've been running them through a food processor and freezing them, just so they don't go bad.
