Here we go:  They are all kind of finicky in my neck of the woods, so we'll see how they do this year.  Probably have the healthiest seedlings ever, so hope that's a sign of good things to come.

well, If you provided peppers for @oldtimer Goblin's Ghost sauce then I send you a hearty "Well Done." That stuff was great.

Peppers are really enjoying the daytime heat and warm nights. Clipped the growing tip on most of them to bush them out. Also feeding a fish emulsion with seaweed extract. They love it.  Foliar feeding with epsom salt solution.

Yo there Jim @jimjimbo ... rumor has it that you have concocted an incredible bloody Mary mix.   I sure hope that one day, we'll be in the same part of the earth at the same time and I can sample it. 

hope your summer is going well. My best friend lives in Carmel, Indiana and I once spent a weekend in Lafayette ... I remember getting there but don't remember much after that ... it was the 70s and as the saying goes ... if you remember it, you weren't there.

Getting close.  Weather this year has been almost perfect.  Every variety has done well.  The fish/seaweed emulsion, epsom salt and worm food has been a good combination food.

 

Pictured here:  Aji Chirrapita, Death Spiral, Dragons Breath, Thai Dragon, Skunk Chocolate, Yellow Fever, Padron.

@jimjimbo  Jim, which of those is the kiing of peppers in regards to heat? The name Lava Red catches my interest.

Of those, the Death Spiral is at the top.

I had some of oldie's Death Spiral pepper sauce and it converted me into liking the hot stuff. :) 

yeah that was a good one; but so far ... Ghost to the Post was the best.  I think he just named it that for my batch, not sure what it was called for the general public.
