Please continue to join us in the forum and certainly feel free to start your own thread if you want everyone to follow along in your journey this season! It looks to me like your garden loves being in the ground - you must have very good soil there! We have decent soil, but I like the mobility of changing things up from year to year, though I rarely change too much. I do move some of the smaller containers around to take advantage of shade/cooler temps, etc.

Don't worry about your significant other - if garden is your passion, do it. Mine pretty much stays out of it because it's MY garden. Sometimes I ask for a little assistance with a few things, but otherwise it's MINE ALL MINE. He has his electronics and I have my tomatoes. Just the way it was intended. Haha.

What do you have planned this year? It looks like you have plenty of space to grow whatever you want!
Yes, that Ghost Pepper plant was SO Healthy I thought it would never stop producing last year!! LOL

My son wanted me to grow it so I did. He took a few ripe ones to High School last year in August and his friends thought they were really tough until they tried a taste of that pepper. One kid started crying (big old football player). He warned them but that's a guy for ya. He even had one of his teacher's taste one---that teacher put a piece in his mouth, spit it out and said "Damn It!" and ran for the teacher's lounge. HA!

Anyway, gardening is one of my biggest passions and I will start my own thread on here.
It's so nice to know others, like you, love it just as much

The mountains are So beautiful!
Thanks, Cindy! They certainly are, especially this time of year when the mountains are still covered in deep snowpack. The fresh new green growth in the foreground always makes for stunning scenery that cameras (or camera phones) just can't capture.

I'll pull over next time..

That's hysterical! Ghost peppers are nothing to mess with, that's for sure. I am growing several for the first time this year, but only as a novelty. I don't plan to mess with them too much. The structure of the plant and leaves themselves I find very interesting. Much different than other pepper varieties. I grew habanero last season and that's more than hot enough for me.

Seriously, handle the plant (at ALL times) with gloves on!!

Good luck growing them. I gave most of them away to people that love hot & spicy food. I can't tolerate that stuff. (Stupid acid reflux! Argh)

Happy Planting!
