Downriver 2023 - Pepper Time

Like others, I debated on having a Glog this year, but figured “what the heck”. It's been fun in past years, so let's give it a go.

Hopefully we'll end up posting pictures like this later in the Season! 🤞

Quick update - peppers are starting to grow. That's about it, lol. Just finished installing a drip system for the peppers. My first foray into drip. I hope it works! Now we need to finish mulching.

Update time.

Pepper plants be growin, lol. Got all of them caged. Now they're free to go wild, ha. The heat wave has finally broken, and temps at night are in the 60's. Let's set some pods dammit!

Jalapeno, Mutijala F6 (seeds from @Fatalii Attraction) I ended up with two plants in the ground, and they are growing a little different.

Plant #1 - shorter, much denser. It is so thick, I'm not sure there's any pods in there, lol.

Plant #2. Taller, a little more open interior, and displaying the (soon to be) winner of the "Longest Jalapeño" contest.😜

...a few pepper-related updates.

Well, there's bad news/good news.

Jalapeno, Mutijala F6 (@Fatalii Attraction)

The bad news is my future contest-winning pepper was suddenly attacked by BER and needed to be terminated.:cry:

The good news is his little brother is growing fast, and will take his brother's place as the eventual contest winner!:D

As a side note, I noticed a Giant Jalapeno the other day. It might not have the length, but it makes up for it in girth, lol.

...various pickings

I made cucumber relish and needed some green and red peppers. So, I went down and grabbed some. I have no idea what they are, lol.

This is the first semi-pick of early, ripe peppers. Many more to come. (Disregard the squash, ha)

Well, it's time to pick peppers! I'm probably behind in doing so, but what else is new, lol.

So, what's been going on the last few weeks? Let's see.....

As you know, the Annuums roll in first.

Top to Bottom: XL Antep Aci Dolma F3, Antonia P. Rhomedia, Wincaf Orange, Wincaf Red

Serrano - I thought serrano had some heat, like more than a jalapeno-type heat. Both of these varieties got nothing. And the Tampequino is commercial seed (Trade Winds). I guess my low-heat sensors are burned out.

Like others have experienced this season, I have a few "surprises" from commercial seed.

Jalapenona NOT/Jalapenona, Jalapenona (THSC)

Further, the SBS Demon Habanero Chocolate plant did not grow well at all - very sparse/spindly. The NOT was healthy though, lol.
