A few new pics.
The big spot, even more overgrown than last time, if such a thing is possible. Several of the volunteers from last year are producing pods now, I've got a couple of loaded aji pineapples and turkish snakes.
White 7 pots.
Side view, with a partially collapsed yellow 7 pot.
Plumbing is done in the kitchen. The whole thing turned out to be more of a pain in the ass than I anticipated, as are most things in life. I wasted a couple of weeks dealing with one plumber that kept jerking me around, not calling me back, etc. Last week I called another guy, he came and looked at the place on Thursday, had the riser diagram done on Friday, had the permit on Monday, and did the work on Tuesday. I was impressed. Now I have to do the drywall and flooring, then get the plumbers back in to finish installing the sinks, THEN I'll be ready to start chopping peppers. I just hope they don't suffer for being on the vine too long.
I've been cooking up my test batches over the last week, the apple pear turned out AMAZING. Much tastier than the "regular" control jar and the plum jar. They've all been going since last October, which is definitely the longest ferment I've done.
I had two that got funky, I posted these pics in another thread in the hot sauce forum, that second one is pretty gnarly looking. Sucks but I'm just going to toss them, the first one was strawberry mango, the second was avocado. RIP you poor bastards.
That's all for now!
