Pepper grow updates

Here are the last two pepper grow updates for the past month. The plants are a little set back from early-season issues, but I think they are doing well now.

2019 Pepper grow update #16 – 08/18/19

This is a super hot pepper grow update for August 18, 2019. Thanks for watching my videos. Overall, the plants are doing very well. I had a little bit of a setback with the large Kratky Bih Jolokia. It ran low on nutrients, and pH got too low. I’ve replaced the nutrients and hope it will recover. The large Kratky Butch T Scorpion in the 60-gallon pickle barrel is doing well. The drip plants are producing heavily with many pods turning ripe. I’ve started selling sfrbs of pods each week, you can see any I have for sale here. https://www.pepperinfo.com/product-category/fresh-pods/

2019 Pepper grow update – 07/05/19

This is the 13th pepper grow update of the season. The plants are doing well, due for some more fertilizer. I gave them 4 Tbsp each of Osmocote 14-14-14, and about 1/4 cup each of additional bonemeal. Hopefully, this won’t be too much and will help them along at least until mid-September.

I found a birds nest at the base of my Ghostly Jalapeno in the self-watering container. I think it’s a Carolina Wren.

My pepper plants are coming along. I looked at some video for around this time last year, and this year’s plants seem a little behind in size in production. I think having them in small cups before plant out, and taking longer to set up them up with a constant nutrient feed, set them back a little. They should catch up and the harvests will just be a little later in the season.
