Finally replanted this year's batch after someone walked off with the habaneros from the last time. Since we're stuck dealing with this drought, I'm going to try some things differently this time around with regard to watering. For now, everything stays inside while I figure out exactly what I'm putting together. On top of it, found a bhut jolokia seedling today while I was shopping for supplies. Not a bad head start.

Also, this new bulb I picked up is pretty slick, though it does weigh down my fixture quite a bit. Crazy heavy heatsink.

After a week of recovery, they're starting to look a bit more lively. A coworker and I went dutch on seedlings from +Refining Fire Chiles to participate in our employee garden this year. We're both picking a single plant from our four choices and taking the rest home. Hopefully someone is growing tomatoes there so I can barter and possibly make some fresh salsa.

In no particular order:
• Moruga Scorpion
• Carolina Reaper
• Chocolate Habanero
• Melrose (the tallest of the bunch)

As an added bonus, it will be a nice opportunity to show off and build a soil moisture sensor.  I'll be using the Blend Micro that I bought last week for that.

Giving some new pepper babies a bit of recovery time. They spent a weekend sitting in the post office before they could be delivered to work. Looking much better than they did yesterday.

Nice. Signs of life from our first attempt at wintering. A single chocolate scotch bonnet. Some will be sad to learn that it contains neither scotch nor chocolate and looks nothing like a bonnet.

"Oh, just go ahead and throw in a full, cut up Trinidad Scorpion. Use the big one. What could possibly go wrong?"

We will soon find out... :D

Figured I'd share our pepper crop for the year. Looks much better than our first attempt as we've changed some things around. Still have some that need to be moved to larger planters. That Tunisian Baklouti is starting to look pretty huge from our window.

Nothing like a little naga jolokia sauce on a burrito to get your blood pumping. :P
