F*****g bugs, kill'em.
Would like to grow chili peppers, but might not be a great idea in Paris.
Will try anyway.

I had to pick up one more pepper variety. It's a super hot called the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga. I got a yellow one. Most ripen to red and are a bit hotter.

If all grows well the fruit should look like this.

Pasilla Bajio has a freak pepper. See it? When it was smaller, I thought they may both keep growing, but only one is.

Hopefully I'll have some ripe n ready for the Fourth Of July.

:) Just started the fall broccoli seedlings :)

Sun King
Purple
Green Calabrese
Romanesco

Here in Connecticut, it's been relatively cool so far, been a good year for the broccoli.
I think it's about to end though, it's going to 87/32 from next week on out.

New for this year, the 3 grapes took, the pink-blueberries, blackberries, and the red raspberries :)

Nice find...where I burned out an area of bull briars and weeds last year, a ton of raspberries came in, it's loaded.

The deer didn't find the grapes that are outside the fense...yet....so far, so good 8)
