Shave and a Haircut - Three Weeks Until Bliss




Category: Hydroculture | Posted: Sat Aug 29, 2015 12:10 am

I had to trim the pepper back a bit today to free up some light for the tomatoes. Hopefully, they'll now mature at a quicker rate than they have been. They're (tomatoes) getting an okay-ish quantity of light but it could be better.


Now, to all the many peppers.

I cut a few branches off that didn't have fruit on them. Since the peppers have reached the pinnacle of pepper production for now and the flowers are dropping off, I figured it would be okay to do the trim. Hopefully, down the road, this will lead to even more peppers.


According to the updated Aerogarden website (glare), I have about three more weeks until they're ready to be harvested. I find it shocking that they're going to get bigger than they are now. I was fully prepared to eat some until I read that they have to cork first. I want the best flavor, so I'm prepared to wait.
