Two chinense and an annuum


It's getting more crowded for each day. Can't wait for the plants to move outside :-)

Some nice flowers on the new varieties. You can click on the image to see more pictures. It would be nice to see some pods soon, but I guess it is too early for that. Anyway, I'm enjoying the flowers.

Chocolate Scotch Bonnet

Orange chinense Brasil

This one is new for me. I got some seeds when we visited Brasil last year.

Brasilian small red hot

This one too is new for me. Not a chinense, but an annuum.

They said on the news that we can expect colder weather, so I guess they will stay inside for some more time...

Wishing you all a nice week!

Easter pods


I keep some of my overwintered plants in the kitchen window. Usually I don't keep plants over the winter, but this year I gave it a try. I even  cut the roots earlier this year, and repotted them in new soil. ( The result has been over my expectations.

Here is the dedo de moça. I has some nice pods.
 In the foreground, there is the peru yellow. Also with some nice pods.

And finally, my pequin from Ischia. This one is full with pods, but they are hard to spot.

No pictures of my overwintered cumari and goatsweed, but there are some pods on them too. Nice, maybe we will have some fresh peppers for midsummer :-)

Wishing you a nice week to come.

Hot regards,

First one to flower...

I don't know the name of this one. I labeled the envelope - Brazilian, small, red, hot. It's a very nice plant. Compact with strong stems. Hope it will set fruit!

Wishing you a nice hot week!

"Semi jungle"


Honestly, not much to "report". This year's plants are growing fine. And the over-wintered ones are producing fruits, making me wish for fresh ripe chiles peppers for midsummer. :-)

Sitting in my armchair, this is my view...

As Patricia says - this is a jungle. Can't wait until they move out on the balcony.

I agree.......

Wishing you a great weekend!
