Growing in the Pacific NorthWest Community GrowLog

There have been several yearly PNW grow logs, the last in 2017,
so @FGpepperguy and I thought it might be a good idea to start
an on-going glog for the PNW. This is a community glog, so anyone
is free to post here, whether in the PNW or not. Hopefully, this forum
thread will provide for some information sharing particular to growing
in our crazy, unpredictable weather.

So, that being said, welcome all. Don't be strangers!

"Yes, we can grow chili peppers in the
Pacific NorthWest! Usually."

Raised the lights up 3 inches (7.5cm), and cut the lights
by one hour. May cut the light back in steps over the
next month or so. Been herding aphids, but under control
so far. Plants showing nice fresh growth. Put four of the
3-gallon OWs on the floor to make room on the table.

Wow, hate to see that, @FGpepperguy.
Couldn't put a like on that post!

I hope it snaps out of it. Any little growth
at the nodes?

Hey, @FGpepperguy - How is the Bahamian Goat
plant doing. I'm hoping that by now, you are seeing
some hew growth at the nodes. How about the pods
that were on the plant?

Wow, really nice specimen, @nwpepper. What size container/
pot is it in? The new growth looks very healthy.

Your greenhouse really rocks those OW's! Can't wait to see
more from there...

Okay, this has to be the last of the berries from the Amarillo Pequin
and Cappuccino Chiltepin. Still no temps below 34-35 this year so far.

Some of the Chiltepin are not fully ripe, but came off the calyx very easily.

20 gallon soft pot. Probably time to redo that next year, strip some soil and add some good stuff. Not really wishing a bigger container. Getting more difficult for these old bones to drag this stuff around anymore.

@nwpepper - You are moving around a 20 gallon soft container?
I can hardly lift one of my 15 gallon nursery pots, much less move
them around without help :oops:. I'm sure that Buhtlah thinks it's in the
ground :lol:.

Keep up the good work, hope to see a lot of you here in the PNW thread!

It sure is, unc! The new growth is really taking off.
Looks like a nice day there. Is that a Golden Pothos
plant keeping it company?
