Sulsa's 2022 grow log

As already stated in my welcome thread i'm fairly new to growing peppers. This is gonna be my second year of growing them.
Last year was quite a succes, started out with ten variaties that i could find locally and ended up with a garden full of lush plants and dito harvests. The climate here is not ideal for growing peppers, especially the 2021 season was quite wet arround here. Hoping this year will be a bit more favourable.

The plan for upcoming season is all about diversity in varieties. I'm trying to find the peppers i like the most and find good use for in the kitchen. Also cutting down on the number of plants per variety so i will not have to proces tons of peppers wich i don't really like.

Below my growlist for upcoming season:

Capsicum Pubescens (sowed 1-7-2022)

5x Rio Hualaga
5x Mini choco

Capsicum Chinense (sowed 1-15-2022)

5x Bonda ma Jacques
5x Bahamian goat
5x Habanero red
30x Adjuma yellow

Capsicum Frutescens

20x Chabai green

Capsicum Baccatum (sowed 1-15-2022)

5x Lemon drop
5x Aji mango
5x Sugar rush peach
5x Rainforrest

Capsicum annuum

5x Jalapeno el Jefe
5x Greek pepperoni
10x Cayenne
10x Cayenne #1 (big and beautyfull off pheno that popped up last year, giving it a try...)
5x Rawit
20x Piquillo de Lodosa
20x Kapia
20x Dulce de Espagna
5x Ancho negro

Most of this plants will be grown in containers in my backyard. I also have about 300 square meters of vegetable garden in wich i will grow a few varieties in open field. Did this last year with sweet peppers and this turned out pretty good.

Selected a plant of each variety, wich has shown best characteristics up to now.
I marked them and will keep an eye on them true the season. If they keep outperforming the others, These will be the plants to harvest seeds from.

Both the aji's and the rocoto where a bit drooping, because they were absolutely bone dry when i took these pictures!
The Annuums are developing surprisingly uniform, will select the best of these later this season.

All very nice-looking specimens, @Sulsa!

What variety is your c. pubescens?
 
Beautiful grow you have going. That hellebore in the back is also a stunner.
I love hellebore! They start flowering in mid winter here and give some color to the winter garden.
I buy a new one every year to put in a pot on the outdoor table in winter time and afterwards they go into the garden. Been doing this for a couple of years now, so got myself a little collection! πŸ˜€

The Chinense are going strong, must consider expanding their growspace or start cutting some leaves out

The bonda ma Jacques are turning in to beasts!

Managed to sunscald most of the Annuums today... was busy cleaning up the garden and forgot about them, they had some serious tanning going on when i realised my mistake. Not too bad, most of this leaves will be long gone in 8 weeks from now, but a bummer nontheless! :banghead:

The Baccatums are also growing way to fast. Starting to fork and even starting their first attempts at making flowers.
