a winter harvest pic for the northerners
I figured I'd post this just to annoy the non-Floridian chiliheads on this forum.
here's a pic of a winter harvest, picked yesterday. I've been told not to be too alarmed if winter pods are smaller than their summer counterparts, so I'm not gonna worry that most the habs are less than half the size I'd expect them to be. the tabascos have been that small all year though. maybe it's a cross, maybe it's just because the plant was badly stunted.
this is just the beginning for the thai peppers though, there's 10x more pods on the plants currently ripening. and there were 6 more green brains on the plant, waiting to ripen. there woulda been 3 more brains to show in the pic, but I've been making fruit x pepper jam, and the brain strain is the best candidate for this, IMHO.
and yes, a white paper towel is always my backdrop for harvest pics. unlike some/most of you, my harvests are never big enough to need anything more than that.
