First Jalapenos for this year - Page 2

post #21 of 36
Cajun and Grape- beautiful so far, congratulations! You all sure have a leg up on us in colder areas. My peppers are just small yet, but I appreciate your pics that give me hope for them later on this summer. Thanks

Thanks, I do get a kick out it. Something about eating something that you have grown is very cool. Post your pics when your babies are grown-up.icon_lol.gif

I have 3 Japs in the garden and 3 more in pots, but I am hard pressed to grow them again. Being we see them in the stores for .99 cents to 1.29 cents a LB. I might just use the ground for something else.

Think this is the 3rd picking so far....Decided to can some slices. Will see how they turn out. Also, picked a bunch of Anaheims today.

Me too, Tip. Just got mine started when Jerry helped me build the earthboxe's for them. They're growing pretty well, just waiting for the fruit to start bearing.

Cajun, those japs look like they're great size! Really love the way they turned out!!

These have been in two weeks.Had our second wettest may and has rained everyday of june.This one is 16 inches and they are ready for some serious HEAT.....When it stops raining- time to cultivate and mulch.

I pinch off small peppers until plants are 2 foot plus.6-10 of my japs are for chipotles and my very first japs of year never have flavor of my japs that have been in heat.
