The beds look great. Whats the fitting your showing for exactly? the copper tubing for a meter? whats the purpose of it though?
RaelThomas said:That's all looking tremendous, Rick! Good stuff!
How long do you find your pubes take to ripen? I've got a large Rocoto Canario which podded up long before any of my chinense varieties and yet, not a spot of colour.
PaulG said:Lots going on here, buddy! Your prep for plant out looks great.
Every time I look at your grow log, Devv's and a few others, I'm so
jealous of the space you have to play with. Good going, bro!
Devv said:Glad to see the final preparations going on Rick
RaelThomas said:The beds are looking slick! That's a great little set-up, I will definitely get some plakky mulch next season.
Good to know re: ripeness on the pubescens. I would have likely picked them too early. Funnily enough, just started to blush today.
That's a gorgeous little sparrow.
RaelThomas said:If only peppers grew as willingly as tomatoes...
I hear ya Rael...
I had a lot of flower drop (maybe a months worth, before they set) with my Rocoto, but it, as yours did, started very early.
PaulG said:Looking back over my pubescens experience, which
isn't much, my Red Rocotos flower and set pods much
more readily than the Orange Manzanos. This is the first
season I'm growing both, so I'll get a better comparison,
(after they recover from their hailstone shower) .
Even with the lousy weather they've been in, the Reds are
still setting little pods!

Devv said:Cool beans that the Oro is setting! I have 5 or 6 pods that are red. I'm sitting on my hands trying not to pull them too early.
Are you going to try the bury the stem method with the maters? They're tall enough. I just leave 2 leaves and the crown above dirt.
moruga welder said:All is looking stellar Rick ! Gonna be a great grow for you this year ,
Nope... This'll be the first time for me Nev. It should prove interesting.ThatBlondGuy101 said:That Oro's looking mighty fine, as are the 'matoes! have you had prior experience with the green mulch? i was contemplating using it in my beds in the future, i will keenly watch how it turns out at your end! Keep up the good work!
Cheers Uros! I agree with Scott and Gary... At least 80% of good gardening is growing the best soil you can and building on it every year. If you don't, entropy will catch up with you sooner or later.tsurrie said:Your plants are impressive Rick. And all those preparations, very nice work. The beds look awesome. Congrats on a great grow and glog.
