Pepper crop for next year will be Thai Gong Bao, Serrano, Poblano, Bell, Banana, Carrot Bomb, Orange Spice Jalapeno, Sugar Rush Peach Jalapeno, Yellow Monster, Pumpkin Spice Jalapeno , Lunch Box and Maya Pimento
The harvest is almost done. I ended up with enough Guajillos and Anchos dried for a couple years of chili. As always, my Bell peppers and Banana peppers ended up being stuffed and eaten through the summer. My New Mexico Peppers also produced a good crop, which are now dried and I will use in my chili in place of Pasilla peppers. I gave away eight-gallon baggies of peppers. I’ll be ordering my seeds for next year in about a month. I think that I will try to grow peppers that I never tried to grow before.
Normally when I harden my plants I do so on consecutive days. This year that was difficult as the sixty and seventy degree days was interspersed with snow. The forecast is looking better next week so I hope to get the plants outside and planted. Even with topping, they are outgrowing my growing chamber.
The question was asked about topping seedlings. I have never done so but I am being forced to this year. After no germination last year, I planted my seeds earlier than normal and they have grown like weeds, to the point they are toppling over.
