    Broccoli started making heads so it should finish out right before the heat hits.

    Wow! Did you bring that inside for the winter? I'm growing scorpion chilis, not sure how they will do here. Super chilis do great in my GH.

    Paw Paws are good. They definitely have a flavor reminiscent of bananas but different. The texture when ripe is almost like ripe avocado.

    Yes. That Ghost Pepper was overwintered. That's why it's setting peppers already.

    That's the best way to go about it imo, especially for the longer growing season varieties. You can grow them into trees that way!

    Does the air pot work better than 5 gal bucket for that? I'd prolly forget about it and it would dry out. Let trade seeds if my scorpion fruits this year-I'll deffinately have super chilis.

    Sounds like a plan.

    The smart pots will definitely grow you a much nicer plant because the roots are constantly air pruned. It's far beyond better but yes, they do dry out quicker.

    You can grow a much larger, more productive plant in them but you'll water it daily. In the case of peppers or any fruiting plant, it's a good thing because you can keep them constantly feeding and producing.

    A five gallon bucket is a little less work with less produce and you still have to keep it watered and fed, especially when it's hot out.

    Until it's into the mid-80's and hotter I only feed/water every 2-3 days.

    That plant will eventually go into a 10 gallon bag filled with Roots Organics Original as its Summer home. The 10 gallons don't dry out quite as fast.

    What is the variety name of the strawberries?. Never seen flowers that color, and some fruits look elongated. Really neat.
    Glad to see you banging out a killer garden again.

    I just moved and my gardening has really only consisted of digging up and putting in pots a good chunk of my perennial fruits. Most i took with me survived moving tho I lost one of my two plum trees, likely more the fault of a neighbor a cpl houses down who sprayed imperial gallons of toxins on his trees and yard.
    Soil at new place is one thing bad about here, and I lack time and money to get it right presently, tho my plants want out of crammed containers all the same, and I hope they'll cope w crap soil till I can get it sorted better.

    MB3! Long time, brother. Glad to see you!

    It's an ever-bearing variety, I recall the name, "rose" being in there somewhere.

    Some of them are like that early on and then they've started to fatten up like the average strawberry as the season has progressed. So far, I'm liking them.

    Right on, man. Glad you found you a new place. It won't be long before you have your plants happy and going!
