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."

The outside plants seem to do okay in the less
than great weather as long as they are under
some kind of cover protected from the rain. These
are on the covered fence shelf facing South.

These under the deck canopy. The OW purple flower
c. chacoense and the 4th year Chiltepin Rojo are looking
kind of sad due to the cool damp weather.

And these under the eaves on the east side of the house.

That's been my experience. Lots of peppers on my deck right now lined up under the eaves of the house and despite the sucky weather most seem quite happy.
 
@PaulG thank yo for holding down the fort. The garden is planted and most of my peppers are over wintered. I lost about 5 in the cheap amazon plastic greenhouse because I didn't pay attention to them very much. That and the wind blew it over back in April. So along with a $10k deck board replacement (Timber Tech), I'm going to build a 6x8 foot lean-to style greenhouse between the mini retaining wall and deck this summer.

Looks awesome, friend! What direction
does the wall face? That will be a cool-
looking grow space when you get it all
done! :clap:

I have a Timber Tech composite deck.
PM if you want to know the unvarnish-
ed truth about my PNW experience with
it. :censored:
