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.
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?
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!
