Garden Update

The above photos are of our garden, they were taken today June 5th, 2008 by myself. Our plants seem to be doing better this year considering we don't get as much sun as we should have. That is why we first started them from seed in our inside greenhouse, then as it got warmer we moved them to our greenhouse outside where we left them until they were ready to be planted in our outside garden site.

We are growing bhut jolokia plants that we also started from seed, this is the first time trying to grow these hot peppers. Through a lot of reading and trial and error it looks like so far we are doing better than what we expected.

Now we are keeping only the bhut jolokia plants inside the greenhouse so that they don't pollinate with any other plants. Doing this means that we will have to hand pollinate them by hand with a fine paint brush.

Only time will tell how successful we will be at growing the hottest pepper in the world. But you never know unless you try, if we don't succeed this year at least we will learn and try again next year. But I am betting we will do okay by the looks of them.
