    Purple Thunder / Bhut Jolokia x (PdN x Bonda Ma Jacques)

    Despite raising some healthy looking PT F4 plants, I just didn't get any pod production this year. The two pods that I DID get, stalled out very small, so I plucked them in hopes that the plant would produce more. I've got flowers, but still no pods......

    Update on the last fruit from the Mucho Nacho....they had decent jalapeno heat. 👍🏼 First BBG is colored up.... More Choco Habs getting ripe (I have picked four already that I'll be making hot honey with today) No pics, but my Guajillo, Poblano and Anheims all continue to produce well...

    A quick update..... Choco Hab starting to color up.... BBG coming along More harvest from my most prolific plant (Anaheim) Second round of fruit set on my Mucho Nacho (first round was small, and NO HEAT!!) This very small plant starting to produce some fruit. Can't remember if this...

    Not sure if I did the right thing, but those first two pods did not change at all in size, so I decided that I'd cull them in the hopes that I'll get a better fruit set.......guess we'll see if that was a good idea or not! :) R

    Well, wouldn't you know it, I go away for a few days, and come back to PODS! :) Just a couple on one plant thus far, and they are ~1.5/2" long. 👍🏼 Seeds sown on 1/25/22, so just about 7 months! :)

    I've got nothing like I've seen some of you post with lots of pods, but still have three healthy plants that are flowering like mad! :)

    Life has been getting in the way of an update, so here it is.... :) Everything is still growing well, though production isn't as high as I wanted. Working on a more consistent nutrients addition schedule to see what effect that has. In the meantime, my Mucho Nacho is loading up again with...

    I'm still here, just been really busy! :) That Anaheim I posted about last time has come to life, and I have over a dozen pods on it, so happy that it's producing. I'm still greatly disappointed in my supposed "Mucho" Nacho jalapenos that are tiny, and have no heat.....some new buds starting to...

    My sad plant from last week has recovered nicely The neighboring two plants are thriving with the larger one flowering a bunch...no pods yet, though!

    Look, ma, peppers! 🤣 My jalapenos stopped getting any bigger (they were small), so I decided to pull them off in the hopes that the next round of fruit would be bigger. Also harvested some Poblano and Anaheim.... My Guajillo is showing some nice color.... And my second Anaheim has grown...

    He recovered just fine, and he's got some (ghetto) support now! :)

    Well, not yet, Paul. The happy looking plants (2nd pic) are the neighbors of the sad looking plant...... I'm sure he'll perk up since I gave him water this am, and I'll get him a support system so if he gets tired again, he won't be sagging! :) R

    I had to report myself to the Purple Thunder Abuse Hotline this morning.....this poor guy is just not liking our latest run of heat (which is odd, since his neighbors don't seem to mind it at all......same soil, same watering schedule, etc!!) I'll get a support stake in the pot for this plant...

    We've had some pretty hot weather going on (peaked at 108 last week), but for the most part, all my plants are tolerating things well. Had to increase the watering schedule a bit, though! I am starting to get some color changes on my Anaheim, Chilaca (Pasilla) and Guajillo.....otherwise, just...

    grilling Pellet Grill Pizza

    The only way I'm able to get the 750°+ temps I like in the RecTeq is to use the GMG Pizza Oven as it funnels all the heat from the fire pot into the oven. This means the grill temp probe thinks that the pit is still low, so runs a hotter fire to get to the temp I have set. I set the grill up...

    grilling Pellet Grill Pizza

    Thanks, getting it dialed in! This is my dough recipe that I use, and it's intended for pretty hot temps (720-780°) as the 00 flour seems to behave better at those temps. If you are cooking at a lower temp, you can just reduce the ratio of 00 flour in the mix, and you should get proper...

    Bit of a long drive from NC, but I'll let you know! 🤣

    Just a quick update since I'm pretty much just waiting on plants to throw pods, or for pods that are already growing to mature. A couple of Poblano pics from this morning that looked sort of artsy. 🤣🤣

    grilling Pellet Grill Pizza

    Ok, so while my peppers do their thing, and I wait patiently (NOT!) for pods to mature, I'll just keep throwing some cooking stuff in here... :) I recently added a Green Mountain Grill Pizza Oven to my cooking arsenal. I have a RecTeq 700, but the oven fits it like a glove anyway. 👍🏼 With an...
