Thanks, that's my parents' plant. I'll have to post some updated ones of mine. I have a couple big ones but without a lot of sunlight I don't get anything like their yields. They've had hundreds of peppers and they keep coming. It's more peppers than all of us combined can use almost. Peppers go in most things I make these days because of it. On the other hand, I think I have 7 on a combined 6 plants lol.

My wife made some oven baked stuffed eggplant last year from our garden (Japanese eggplant) that was really good.

hahah zapped was just asking me the same thing in chat. i have 1 eggplant plant on accident, it overwintered itself, which is cool, but I am not especially growing eggplant on purpose.

I cooked one a week ago more or less like squash- slice it, oil it, spice it, put it in the oven. It came out okay, kinda dry, but nowhere near as good as it comes from a Thai restaurant. It seems hard to cook properly imo.

u/Zapped how should I cook it?

I wanted to ask you how you will cook the eggplant or if you woukd upload a picture of the cooked eggplant, but I did not want to burden you with more work. But if you want, I am interested to see how you prepare it. u/Zapped also might be interested since he especially likes eggplant.

If you have an abundance of peppers you can bring a pot of vinegar to the boil, drop in some sliced onion, and your peppers. Let it cool and pour it all into a big pickle jar. Put it in the fridge. You will have pickled peppers for months and the peppered vinegar itself is great. I did that a couple of years ago when I planted too many serano peppers. Serano make short bushy plants but they get loaded with peppers.

Hello, fellow pepper gardener! I do eat Jalapeños fresh, usually sliced, fried in oil and mixed with other food. In past years I gave some away to those that like Jalapeños. And when I stored them, I froze them in slices, which kept surprisingly well. I was thankful to have a taste of summer in winter. I took the resealable bag out of the freezer, grabbed a handful of frozen Jalapeño slices, and fried them up... It felt like a treat in winter.

Plain fried okra is different than boiled okra is different than breaded fried okra. Some people, like my father, like it burned a little. I only like it breaded and fried, although I've heard pickled okra is good.

Yeah, it's been rough. My basil especially kept dying, although I finally have some small plants, I usually grow them in the beginning of the year and they'd start flowering soon. Although with these cantaloupes, I just planted the seeds from one I bought in the store recently, on paper they might have enough time before the temps get too cold.

👍 It looks like you are learning what works for your location.

The soil looks dry in the pictures. One trick to keep potted plants hydrated longer is to put a pan or container of water under the pots. The roots of the plants can pull up water through the holes of the bottom of the pot. I do this, but one disadvantage is mosquitoes breed in the water, so I have to keep an eye on that and take action before the larvae grow into adults.

This year was for experimentation with the hot peppers. I plan on making hot sauce with them. I don't know if I'll grow these varieties again next year. I have them on the eastern side of the house so that they get morning sun but are shaded in the afternoon. My banana peppers did great in full sun last year, but my jalapeños did not until I moved them to afternoon shade.

You like the hot peppers! How will you use them? Since your plants are in pots, have you moved them at all to improve their growth? An advantage of the container planting is you could move them to the shade when the sun is scorching the ground in extreme heat, and when the weather is cooler you could move them to a sunnier place.

I understand your reason.

Raccoons can be trouble here, too. They have hands! In previous years squirrels also found my tomatoes, but not this year. One day I walked outside toward the garden and saw a squirrel high up on a tree branch holding one of my tomatoes, eating it! But lately we have had enough tomatoes. We have several now available to eat on the kitchen shelf. So we can afford to let the wildlife have some so I try to not let myself be angry. I wish you continued harvests!

Because I don't want to harvest every day, to save effort. And tomatoes are great at ripening off the vine. So picking them when they're orange buys me another 3 days or so.

I'm just winging it. Birds sounds terrible. I'm worried that the raccoons might discover my garden someday. It's a pleasure to be gardening with you.

I pick mine anytime they're ripe, just look for that sexy, sexy red coloration. Sometimes they turn brown and stay brown, but sometimes brown ones turn red. Brown is when the chlorophyll remains. You have at least a couple week window, maybe more, till they get soft and you can use em then too ofc.

You can pick them green, that's how stores sell them usually for longevity, but since the ripe ones are so hard to get I wouldn't pass up the opportunity to ripen your peppers.

I just proudly wrote down a beta-version of my lemma to be able to better describe to you what i think about decisions like this:

If you apply this lemma regarding your personal "stress"-level or "dissatisfaction"-level induced onto you by your "external" context (through laws and bureaucracy and that a like) maybe your personal "suffering pressure" just ain't high enough at this point in time to actively make and follow through on the decision to move to another state.

But in this case you are basically whining about things you actively can change in one way or another, i suppose.

Democracies lifeblood literally is participation. Else it is an automatic "win" for the people that don't respect your "will" enough. Because they actually can't respect it, if you don't tell them that you have one. Or an opinion on this thing.

Total red state where any kind of nanny state food farming fuckery would never be allowed. Oh and gigabit fiber optic internet is $65 a month. Not moving anytime soon.

Nope... Totally clear and sober. The only "drug" i take on a regular basis is : Methylphenidate.

Regular "retard" pills. I don't sniff them, like some idiots do, to get a pseudo-high.

To "slow" down my thoughts a bit. But i could getter "harder" prescription drugs, if i wanted to.

So thanks for asking, but the answer is : No.

Snapback to the topic: Have you thought about "choosing" another state with your feet, so to say ?

Nanny state "protecting" us from ourselves. In some places it is illegal to save and store rain water.

While here in the USA they want to outlaw growing your own food.

Yeah, it's wild if you haven't tasted it before. Sweet and fruity. Habaneros are like that too, and I hear scotch bonnets. But it can be hard to taste the flavor with the immense heat.

I put 3 of the sadder looking ones in a jar of vinegar, Filipinos apparently call it sinamak and use it as a dipping sauce. If I can't figure out anything else to do with the others, like the last 3 years past, they'll all go in the jar. Tastes really good mixed with soy sauce as a dip for fish. And it's neat the jar of flavored vinegar is three years in the making.
