My 2014 list and hopefully GLOG

I`m going to try and keep a GLOG this year. In the past I`ve felt that if I did a GLOG I`d get bored with keeping it up, so we`ll see how it goes.

That is a cucumber relative from Bolivia, called Achocha. It does need some nutrients, but I`ll pot it up today or tomorrow in real soil. 
       Thanks Nigel for clearing up that plant.I kept looking for 5 leaves thinking that can't be what I think it is,even if ya do live in California. ;)

You're making a great go of it for your first GLOG!  More fun than you anticipated, no?  By the way, how many Bahamian Goats did you plant?
Thanks Jim. It is kinda fun, although I sometimes feel like I`m showing off and I don't like that. 
I only sowed 6 Bahamian Goats, so I have 5 seedlings  :rolleyes:

You're making some great progress and taking some freakin' awesome macro shots Nigel! Good on ya! Have you grown wild varieties before?
Last year was my first year for growing wilds. I need to get some photos of the wilds I have. They are still pretty tiny, but doing Ok, largely. 
Ok, on to the wild species I`m growing this year. I germinated wilds in rockwool, although I`d never used it before. One important thing I found out was that if you separate the individual blocks from a sheet, they are a pain in the ass to keep damp. If you keep the entire sheet intact, it`s a real breeze to keep them with just the right level of dampness.
included in here are numerous C.eximium types, C.cardenasii, C.baccatum baccatum, C.galapagoense, Cumari pollux (C.praetermissum), Cumari verdadeira (C.praetermissum), Rocopica, and C.chacoense. My C.lanceolatum, C.rhomboideum all suffered with helmet heads and did not make it. Time to start more seeds, I guess. My single C.tovarii seed did not germinate. Bummer. 
Tray #1 

Tray #2
And we`re onto potting up seedlings now. I`m about 2/3rds of the way through.
Holy crap this is some amount of work!!!
First set of seedlings potted into 1 quart pots. Happy Frog soil, with around 30% perlite added by volume. 

A few more,

I still have these to do, Sigh!!!


A few photos,
This is a small Red Manzano from Mexico, found in a store in Vegas, seeds from Walt (Vegas_chili)!!! 

Another pubescens. This one is from the village of San Isidro in the Canary Islands and has a very pale, almost white flower,

Urfa biber,

Yellow Tepin starting to branch!
My chiltepin amarillo didnt grow true waiting to see the pod ripen to see if it is at least good im trying to grow a true round tepin i have one more tepin plant im waiting for it to fruit
 I did not grow it Nigel( yellow tepin )  but the guy who sent me the pods showed me pics of the plant and it was for real  :fireball: And I ate a fresh one that tasted just like it's red counterpart. 
Plants are looking Brilliant my friend  :dance: And having a glog is not showing off  :shh:  Just fun to be able  look back at your grow ( in the not so near future ) and shiat  ;)
Nice looking plants, Nigel.  I love the purple varieties in post 106!   Some of the pepper plants are such beautiful foliage plants.  I just brought up my favorite 7 Pot White earlier tonight to show my wife how pretty it is just as a potted plant!

How's this doing?
Unforunately, that was one I only sowed 3 seeds of and they didn`t come up. I haven`t re-sown seeds as I`m inundated with plants! I know that Steven "Standbyandfire" is growing it. It also goes by the accession number PI281353, as you probably know!

The San Isidro Rocoto is a great plant,flowers early and often. I wasn't overly impressed with the taste,but it made the list again this season.

What a stunner that is!!! Great looking plant, John.
