    I got all the pepper plants out of the grow room today and put them in containers. The containers are nice to work with because of mobility. These are  a peruvian, lemon two green peppers.

    I added another sprinkler head today after finding a split tomato this morning. Better to find it in now rather than in June, so I could correct the issue. If there was a Mrs Pepper, I think she would have liked where I put the tomato plants against the wood. It looks better and they’re getting water now.

    This is a video I did in July2013, at the beginning you’ll see the first dutch bucket prototypes I built. The rest of the video has a lot of pepper plants in containers. I hope you enjoy it.

    These are Hungarian wax peppers, they’re one of my favorites. They’re part of the banana pepper family but a little smaller and a little hotter. I have three plants in this giant container.

    While I was taking pictures of my tomato plants this morning I came across these spider mites. I sprayed them with neem oil and moved the plant.

        Mr and Mrs Cog,

        These are some pictures I took last year of the tomato horn worm. I read on line to go out at night with a flash light to locate them. My first night I found 4 of them. Have a pair of scissors on hand to cut them in half. These monsters can and will destroy a plant overnight.

          This picture is from last year also. I had some Beef steak tomatoes on the other side of the house and I didn’t look at them close enough  everyday. This is the horror I found.

            Okay ewww, and thank you Mr. Pepper for that very useful information. As I am still in my “trying not to be skeeved by bugs & worms stage”, I am not going to enlarge those wonderful pictures you attached. Should anybody want to view the pictures more closely to identify things I hope to never find in my garden, feel free to click on the little picture and it will become larger on your screen. :-)

    I ordered these seeds from a Texas co this year. These are called Celebrity tomatoes 100 seeds for $8.00 a little on the pricey side. I like the way they are growing so far, the stems are very thick and they can hold the weight of big tomatoes. I have most in containers and I did two in the ground this year.

      Nice ‘maters Mr. Pepper♫. You must live in a tropical paradise compared to our mountain. Unseasonably chilly, it got down to 40° last night and the night before. Our poor tomato plants are hunkered down near the dirt shivering brrrrr. Please ship some warm sunny weather asap. :-)

    OK Mr. Pepper ♫,

    Prepare to laugh – I have solved the mystery. The peppers labeled “K.A. Peppers” stand for… wait for it: Kaleidoscope Assortment. When the elderly lady at the greenhouse told me, I laughed out loud. So… LOTS of extra sweet peppers here in Cogville. Should make for some colorful salsa. :-)

    These are the Hungarian wax peppers(3 plants) in a 10 gallon container that the garden guru( Raymond) at Lowe’s so graciously saved for me during the year, he has given me 100’s of them in the last 3 years. There are at least 75 peppers on those plants. I’ve been using the old coffee and tea grounds as feed and I like what I’m seeing:)

    Cayenne Peppers in containers, they’re doing good after I moved them from the side garden as it was too hot. They should produce until mid November. The Peruvian pepper I’m going to move inside in November.
