Finally I am at it again!

Category: Project Red Chili Pepper | Posted: Fri Oct 21, 2011 4:07 pm

Oops!! Six months had passed and I finally got down to working on this project again, yes Project Red Chili Pepper. In my last post on this project I mentioned that I planted 2 seeds for this project and they did not germinate mainly due to negligence. I was kind of a busy with ..... yes,yes, excuses excuses so let's not get into that.


Bell Pepper ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

Recently I received some bell pepper seeds in the mail and this is the only seedling I got from about 10 seeds that I planted. To-date it is about 5 weeks since the day I sowed the seeds and just had it transplanted to the ground.

Now to keep an eagle eye on it and to make some of the special brew for immediate action when the need arises.

It looks very good for it's age. Peppers are slow growers and poor germinators, but usually not that bad. Glad you got at least one out of the pack. Good Luck!!! By the way, I usually I don't have any insect problems EXCEPT for aphids early in the season when they are young and tender and tomato and tobacco hornworms later in the season. I hope you don't have those there. if so they are easy to pick off, just hard to spot, even though the damage is very apparent.

Thanks Carolyn, I guess aphids and peppers goes hand in hand becuase I get them here too. Aphids are easy to handle but recently I learn from my seed supplier that the biggest headache here for pepper growers is red spider mite. These varmints cannot be seen by the naked eyes and almost impossible to get rid off. My last chili pepper plants was infested and I managed to rid the plant of these varmints. I nearly killed the plants doing so. Now I want to confirm whether the brew I made is actually the solution to this mite problems.

That paprika looks pretty good. I hope that you are going to have some good luck with it.

Aphids and red spider mites really are irritating pests to contend with. Having said that, I have never found either one difficult to get rid of...so maybe you will have good success.

Good luck with your special brew.

Hi there KK Ng - that plant looks quite healthy. Good luck with the peppers - They are hungry plants and like beign fed fertilizer to produce abundantly.

Hi Palm Tree, due to the excessive rain fall here the plant is not doing as well as I would expected it would be. Keeping my finger crossed that it would survive this spell of excessive rain!
