I've been waffling on whether to try my hand at a glog, and then decided, "hey, why not?" I figure it's another chance to learn from the rest of you as I track my progress.
There are a few factors at play:
- I am in Málaga and there's pretty good weather here for year-round growing. I think the zone is 10a.
- I don't have much space. Just a small patio that can maybe handle 6 or 7 plants.
- I want to grow peppers that I find interesting, tasty, and beautiful. I don't mind super-hots, but they're not my goal. The hottest I currently have planned is MOA Scotch Bonnets.
- My kids don't want peppers, so I agreed to get some tomatoes going for them if they agree to help out and learn with me.
- And the last factor is I don't know what I'm doing but I'm happy to experiment and figure it out.
All the seeds are from Semillas La Palma. Pretty surprised and excited to find such a reputable seller of pepper seeds in Spain. Spanish cuisine is not known for spice.
- Buena Mulatta
- Black Pearl
- Fresno Supreme
- MOA Scotch Bonnets (orange)
- 100s and 1000s
- Tiny Tim
So that's where I'm starting. It's a rolling glog because I'll start with a couple seedlings, then start the next when the previous plants are ready to move outside. Not particularly exciting, but at least I get to play around with the different stages a few times.
