2012 Harvest

rdback(Z6 VA)October 18, 2012

Hi folks,

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, but things are better now and I'm back!

Ask I posted in another thread, I finally got around to uploading some pictures, so I may inundate ya over the next few whatevers *lol*.

I wasn't able to spend time in the garden much from July thru September, so it was pretty neglected. In the beginning of October we started picking our first of the YEAR harvest of our pepper plants. We didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised.

Anyway, I need to catch up on some threads, so here's a few pics for your perusal *smile*.

Enjoy -- Rick

Wow, for a garden that went unattended for the 3 most important months of your growing season, that is freakin impressive. You must have a Garden Fairy Grove in there somewhere..LOL! I must say, I don't think that I've ever heard of a Cili Goronong, but its certainly the most interestingly shaped pod that I have ever seen...absolutely stunning! BRAVO!

Great harvest! Lots of variety!

Those fataliis look more blocky than the ones I have (from tomatogrowers). Mine taper to a point.

Amazing harvest and stunning display. Where in this neglected garden were these plants, in the ground or in pots? I am hoping to take an August vacation sometime, so any hints would be welcome.

Rick - I'm very envious of your Great pepper harvest. Ma Nature and/or the Garden Fairy took real good care of those peppers during your garden absence.

PJ - Just last week I found a German pepper site that has the 'Cili Goronong' pepper and many other interesting peppers. It's amazing all the different peppers available in the European pepper market compared to the US.
