I plated some habanero's on December 17th, and some NuMex Jalmundo jalapenos on December 24th. The growth rate is quite noticable. I'm hoping for some good heat on the taste buds this year.



NuMex Jalmundo jalapenos look big even without 2nd set of leaves.I have 18 of these plants for this year.

The habaneros below now have 2nd sets of leaves, but the peppers all much smaller.The growth rate is slower, but the heat should be better.I have 4 good plants selected for this year

Damn, Rich!  A sure sign of spring.  It was 10° here this morning.  Looking forward to the garden pics.

 Just for clarification, Larry (uncle jar) sent me some seeds. They were Orange habanero and Red Savina. I was luck to have both types germinate. The NuMex Jalmundo seeds (jalapeno), are from the NMSU Perpper Institute. Germination was a little better than 90%. Big thanks to Larry. It's all good my friend.

Hey Uncle,

Where do you get your seeds from? Are they your personal stash or do you buy seeds in bulk?

If it makes you feel any  better, my office has turned into a pepper cave. What the hey...

I got the pepper plants from my brother in law  and just seeded out a few peppers to save some of the seeds

most kinds of peppers are readily available around here from several local green houses.

I dont usually start my own any more like I used to, I just go to the green house and buy the plants
