Nice start Dave. I can't wait to see the next pull. With all those plants you got going, I imagine you have a shed just for baskets!

Very nice. How many plants are you growing? Do you overwinter plants in zone 7 or are these just annuals?

I overwintered one Hab and it is outperforming my annuals by hundreds of percent! Just wish it was something different than a Caribbean Red Hab.

Just annuals I have around 400 plants I started late February most in ground but a few in pots for isolation.

Great harvest, Dave.
As I recall, you have a unique micro climate in zone 7, NJ (?). Same is here where I am (zone 7b/8A), Heat Zone 1.
I wonder how your summer has been like ? We have been having a better than average summer. By this years data we are qualified to upgrade to Heat Zone 3. Because of this, my peppers are doing ok, despite of getting less than 5 hours of direct sun. We also have more than 2 months of growing season left. Our FFD comes around mid November. I have experienced that some mild pepper do fine in cool fall weather. What is your experience ?

Wow, that's just really, really nice! Great job, both with the growing and photography.

The old-fashioned vernacular comes to mind "that's the bee's knees!"
