Next to My Chair - Bowls of Bonnets

Starting chili peppers here next to my chair in my little library again! :dance:
This one-windowed room at the southeast corner started as a place to read quietly and store my books. Over the last few years it's become not only my refuge, but also a WFH office, a light workshop, and a productive year-round indoor garden. The place has become commensurately cluttered and is badly in need of an exceptionally ruthless purge, so I fished out an old shot of a tidier time to head this year's glog on our spiffy new forum. (Siv's plant!!) (So spartan!) Ah..
It looks more like some hermit's rat hole in a cyberpunk novel now, lol. You'll see it eventually, I'm sure.

I've got enough superhot powder stocked up to go to war and I luurve Scotch Bonnets, so I'm going to grow mostly bonnets this year. I've got some good ones. These seeds went into the germinator after this photo. I've also got a TFM and a Zapotec jap I'm overwintering, so seven chili pepper plants this year. I'll start some cucamelon seeds, too, when my new tent arrives.

Really looking forward to the HSH and the Marabella - both were gorgeous plants with gorgeous pods last year. Thanks again @JGBaxter59 for the caramel beast seeds!


Some inspirational bowls. Mmm.. I can just taste them..

Cucamelon may yet survive, but isn't looking too good today. I stuck five or six seeds in the dirt around him. Late start, worst case. I'm gonna have me some cucamelons this year. Keep starting seeds into the summer if I have to, dammit.

That's because it's August in May, temp-wise. Supposed to cool off later in the week, back to where it should be this time of year.

Hey, Unc, I can see the growth picking
up the pace in that first picture! Do I see
pod-lets on there, or do my eyes deceive
me :D ?

There are a few ripe minis on there. Hoping it starts throwing full-sized pods soon.

I must have a 'half-pound' of unripe minis on
my chinenses. :rofl: I'm torn over whether to
leave them to ripen, or take them off. Ususlly I
just leave them, but there are so many this
season. PNW really needs some sun to get
plants into gear. Right now, just sort of tread-
ing water.

I hope the weather improves for both of us
real soon :pray:
