I only have an electric grill on my apartment balcony (I won it in a raffle). My smoker, charcoal grill, and chili cooker stay at my grandmothers house 15 mins away so I can't smoke daily just on the weekends for the most part.

 

Chocolate Habs are very hot like it's cousin but has a unique flavor I couldn't really explain. It is used a lot in the Caribbean. I first heard of it while I was in Jamaica and I buddy of mine from there ended up shipping me most of the pepper seeds I have growing right now, I love it for BBQ sauce and marinades.

Thanks! Tomatoes have some flowers right now so I am hoping to have something to eat soon. I just wish the peppers would hurry up.

Scotch Bonnet has grown and I got the 2nd plant finally in. I should've doubled up the other peppers instead of the Scotch Bonnets and Chocolate Habaneros

The rest of the crew in their droopy full sun time, the perk right back up when the sun starts to go down.

It is weird my serrano from last year was like 4 feet tall this year only 2 feet so far and already producing.

 

 

Thanks for looking!

Very nice BigTwig!!!

 

We can't grow things in pots!

 

Every time we have an extra tomato plant, Mrs Bear sticks it in a pot, and they never do well at all.

 

You must know some trick!

 

 

Thanks for the views!

Thanks Bear! I guess I am just lucky cause I sure don't know any tricks, at least I think I don't know any tricks. I do have to pay attention to watering more cause the soil can dry up in a pot very fast.
