The plants are all looking pretty good man, where are you located?

At some point soon, it'll likely be rather hard to get into the middle of the field to harvest - you're in store for some large ones there!

Looks great kclost! Excellent progress.

I like the way you've bordered the whole thing with onions. Using them to deter aphids?

Don't forget that mulch!

Yea it's going to get crowded, but I find that it doesn't seem to hinder production and they also seem to support each other when they get bigger in the strong winds we have in the Kansas City area. I also just want to maximize what I can get out of the space. Still trying to decide what type of mulch I should go with..

I'm thinking about some sort of compost...

Those are some healthy looking plants! What in the world are you going to do with all the pods off 9 reaper plants? Great job so far, you should have ripe pods before too long.

I make sauce(s). I will pick every rip pod and vacuum pack them to freeze. I had 12 ghost plants last year and used up all the pods harvested. Last year though I dehydrated all of them, this year I want to freeze them to keep a better texture to the sauces.

Yes beautiful plants. And thanks for the idea to vacuum seal the pods. I have a sealer that doesn't get used since I no longer hunt. Using it for peppers sounds perfect. (thumbsup)
