Guyana Tiger's Tooth - A great producer and hella hot!

Guyana Tiger’s Tooth – A great producer and hella hot!

     Before I head out to Bowers, PA for the Chile Pepper Festival, I wanted to post a garden update and finally show off a harvest that I’ve been waiting on for months.  It hasn’t been ideal pepper growing weather this summer by any means.  We only had about 10 days of temps in the mid to high 90’s and we received rain (1-2 inches at a time) steadily all season.  I’ve only had to water my plants 3 times since May!  I’m grateful that I don’t have to rely on pepper production to feed my family but I have come to the realization that my goal of harvesting 2500 peppers this season is just not going to happen.  At least I finally have a great reason to attempt overwintering some chile plants to get a jump start on next season. 

Check out these photos and let me know how your plants are doing this year (peppers or otherwise).  Then watch this Peppermeister Roulette Video a few more times.

Finally, a proper harvest!  I'm hoping to have quite a few more hauls before the season comes to an end.
