Pepper & garden pics  - 
 
OOPS!!

Here are the six remaining seedlings I fried.  I accidentally left them out in full sun for three hours, when they were only supposed to be out for one.  They represent the only seedlings left for the 4 types shown in the picture.  

Prioritization in the order of the plants I most look forward to growing (and eating):

Naranja Picante Habanero
Trinidad Chocolate Scorpion
Murupi Amarela
Carolina Reaper

Join me in crossing my fingers that I can salvage at least one from all four types shown!

+Daniel Abner I don't know if this will help in future, but I had seedlings for over 6 weeks on window will that had tinted glass
(you can purchase sheets of window tint), the tint lowered the direct heat and therefore wasn't harmful to the foliage.
It wasn't until late in the 3rd spring month that the heat become too hot on the glass.

This problem developed over the past two days apparently after leaving these plants under a cold frame for 2 complete days straight with mostly overcast skies.  The temp ranges were between 60 and 72 degrees.  They were perfectly fine beforehand.  And three plants that weren't left out are do not exhibit the same symptoms.  

Any ideas what may be causing it?

I would give them a week or so to recover before feeding, and would probably do it at half strength the first time.

Little babies are growing up. This little fella is nearly 3 times the size of its brothers, I think because it's in the kitchen window while the rest are down in the basement under grow lights. It's also had a few brief stints out in the sun.

There's something about window sills that pepper seedlings take to. My kitchen window faced southwest, so the direct sun never hit seedlings until after 3pm, so the plants remained lush green like yours 👍

Chicken and sausage jambalaya. Decided to try serving my jambalaya over a creole sauce. Worked out well.

I made a pot of gumbo this week and a few people asked for the recipe.  I thought I'd share it here as well.

It's beautiful outside!  All plants are now outside and most are getting their first hour dose of full sun.

Should I be concerned?

I started 3 types of peppers in my basement 3 weeks ago, but only two have germinated.  The Orange Habanero and Jay's Peach Scorpion Ghost seeds germinated with in 10 days.  However, the Fatilii's have shown no signs of life so far.  

I know that some types of peppers take longer than others, but I don't know about Fatalii's.  What's been your experience with them?

Little background information:  My seeds are grown in flats and kept at 80 F using heating mats.  I've had to remove the humidity dome from the flat since the other seeds have already germinated.  I water each cell when the soil dries out on top.  I bought my seeds from Refining Fire Chiles a couple months ago.

Contact jim Duffy (refining fire chiles) and tell him what's up. Maybe he can send you a few starts. He's a good guy and has always taken care of me. You can usually reach him easily on FB.

+Wolf Revels - when do you usually start your pepper plants? I'm considering starting them in January this year. (I'm basically in the same zone as you.)
