They’re habaneros, I don’t know if they have different varieties, that pile made 14 jars of jelly

The red ones could be scotch bonnets...similar to habaneros. Pepper jelly is great. I made a batch a few years ago with some hot lemon peppers I grew. Care to share your recipe?

You can also make a nice habanero/carrot sauce.... carrot adds some sweetness and the color stays unique

Ours is all but done. A few tomato plants still producing, especially the cherry tomatoes. Cukes, peppers, zukes, and egg plant have been done for weeks.

 

There is now a very large black and yellow garden spider who has claimed the last jalapeno pepper plant. It can have the pepper. :blink:

They taste like Chicken !   LOL

They looked like Carolina Reapers.  My cousin grew some, but everyone is afraid to try them.  0E213970-8E45-4A9B-B980-F9016A8619DE.jpeg.4320a5f56d1810515d210c1e887933f3.jpeg

Was upstate since Saturday just got back and my garden is destroyed after having no issues all year. My whole fence is torn down, watermelons, tomatoes, corn, pablano peppers, jalapeno peppers, potatoes, and bell peppers are demolished. WTF I found deer poop and tracks but do deer really eat all of the above? Could it have been a bear? The fence was only about 6 foot no reason a deer couldnt just jump over it.

Also it wasn't my original plan but I will now be hunting (taking revenge) behind my house. Even better I pulled the sd card in my cam and forgot to put it back.

I picked my first dozen ears of silver queen sweetcorn this afternoon.  We are having it for supper, and that kind is always my favorite. The coons have not got into it at all, so we may get enough out of the few rows that I planted out back, to put some in the freezer. 

I trapped 4 coons earlier, near some earlier ripening types that were planted at the same time and a few weeks earlier, but the coons wiped out most of that before I got them.  Coyotes found the shallow buried coon carcasses and have been keeping the corn coon free the last couple weeks.  Hopefully, they move away before I start deer hunting in early November.  I think you can legally start shooting them in October so I might have to try some of that.

Almost time to plant the garlic. I’m waiting for my cloves to be shipped. Hopefully I’ll have them in the ground by 9/30.

Could this be your problem ? I’m using the bulbs from Keene Garlic Farm. I haven’t grown any in years but it is relatively easy. Bury the clove with the point up and cover with 3” of dirt. Then cover it with about 6” of straw.A421E71A-7E12-4F42-8B5B-9CFBC013CFC0.thumb.png.4459628ff8be8554aae6256e8b9f5bfe.png

I have always planted mine the second or third week of October and had good luck..An old friend of mine (RIP) told me that anytime after the full moon in September was OK...  I have been using the same seed for seven or  eight years now ..I just save big biggest and best cloves for seed, and eat the rest....A couple of years ago I had a so-so crop and suspected my seed was losing it's vigor, I considered buying some new seed, but replanted my old stuff and last year my crop was super...This year it is s0-so again...I guess I'll give this old German White seed one more chance..
