Nothing better than a bowl of chili on a cold day. Are those mild, wild, or YIKES?

These are really mild with lots of richness. We made chicken stew tonight with a hand full of these dried chilis and a few fresh hot ones -delicious ! ;D All summer long roasted fresh from the garden was a luxury.

Opposite seasons.  :)

I've got my seedlings in. Trying a makeshift greenhouse at a friends farm. Where I live is marginal for growing chillies. If we get a good year, they do OK, if it's a cool spring and summer, not so good. So I have re-roofed an old pig pen with clear roof, and set up an irrigation system. If it works, we have have about an acre old old pig sheds we can repurpose. But that's a  bigger investment. 



And I've planted a mix of relatively tame Jalapeno, up to Trinidad Scorpions.  Will do some "market research" with this years (hopeful) crop.

Updating. 
The plants my friend started early have been a bit disappointing. That may have been over use of aphid spray, which only made the aphids mad, and almost killed the plants. The later plants in pots have done better and I've settled into controlling the bugs with a regular cold water spray. Seems to work well once the plants get tall enough to discourage them from crawling back up again. 



Got the Bhut Jolokias with good fruit on them now. 



And a three year old Birdseye plant that's survived 2 Winters on the window sill is loaded after being repotted. 



This years window sill Birdseye plant is already 3 ft high, and has about a dozen fruit on it already.  ???  It's a bit spindly compared to an outdoor plant, but it's flowering and fruiting, so I'm going to call  that a success. 



Anyway, this is intended as a "pre commercial" sort of experiment. Basically we have as much shed space as we want to buy polycarb roofing for. Have a couple of "chilli heads" lined up that will buy some, and a range of fruit to test the market. Relatively tame Jalapeno, up to "weapons grade" Bhut Jolokia.  Timing of the seedlings seems to be important, if they sprout too soon, they seem to "stall" if the weather gets cold. Later plants then overtake them...

Roger that on the opposite seasons-I'm planting carrots and lettuce right now with night temps hitting 19 F. Your choice of chilies is terrific and I'm jealous !

  I am adding my home made hot sauce that I made from Carolina Reapers to the chili we had just yesterday. It is warm here right now, but it has been pretty chili :D.  I winterized my plants so they will probably start blooming again in a month or so. I planted them from seed last year and they did really well. I also use the dried cayannes I dehydrated a lot in the same types of meals.

Daytime temps have been getting up over  85F for most of the last week. Chillies are liking that. 

Even the latest plants that I grew from seed are starting to flower, and some of the larger ones that I bought as seedlings are loaded with fruit now. 

This is a Bhut Jolokia, an Indian variety. Not quite as hot as Carolina Reapers, but close, and makes a good hot sauce / elephant repellent / tear gas grenade...  :D
