If you haven't, you may want to put in some V shaped clips to secure the bottom of the fence. They have nothing but time to check your work.

So far they haven't snuck in. Fingers crossed.

It sure has been a good season weather wise. I haven't had to water since shortly after I planted.

I put in my tomatoes and peppers last weekend and built the greenhouses. All week it was nice and toasty in there. I opened one end to vent mid days. They were thriving nicely, leaf tips up. It is sup

Great growing season! The top of my tomato cages are around 6.5', the black cherry usually goes a couple feet beyond before they start to topple over. My bell peppers are over waist high and producing

Been to cold and cloudy every day. I started mine inside and transplanted them 3 weeks ago. They are all just sitting there. Even with covers on them. Need some warm sunny day or vine crops will be a bust this year.

Got 3 tomato plants that look like they don't wanna do anything though!!??

 

They sound like they got cold, I planted too soon years back and had the same thing. I bought smaller new plants that out performed the stunted ones. It took about a month before they started growing again. The heat at the end of this week should help them out.

Been kind of a disappointing year for me. Tomato blight, I'm passing on planting them next year. The peppers are doing okay, but no where near the numbers of previous years.

 

The garden seems to be getting more shade these days. I tried to plant tomatoes in a new spot, and the cherry tomato plant is tall enough to avoid most of the blight. But it shades the peppers.

 

The "Loco" peppers are doing well, although I'm not sure I'm crazy enough to pop one my mouth yet.

What kind of pepper is that. I wanna plant one next year because it looks cool and would make some awesome looking jelly. Im guessing its supposed to be hot. My tomatoes look like dump again also.

 

All it says is Loco, and they are hot, found them by the habanero and ghost peppers.

 

Small plant, 7" tall maybe, peppers are only grape sized.

 

Hope to find some next year.

Would like to put a couple in pots for some color competition with the wives flowers up on the deck.

I'm not a super hot pepper guy for eats, but they are some cool plants.

Never heard of them either?  🤔

Hot (5,000 to 30,000 Scoville Units)

That's a cool looking pepper. I got some pepper seeds from Cambodian friend from work that were beautiful plants like that one, small and really hot. I dug them up and overwintered them inside and put them back out the next year. They got about chest high and full of peppers, quite pretty.
