Bump. Anyone got their capsaicinoids on the go for 2018?

No chillies this year. Demo'd the conservatory, so I no longer have a grow house!
 
Struggled with slugs this year though, so I have used a combo of beer traps, a brick for dispatching them and nematodes. My garden is now relatively slug free.

Got a few Aji's on the bubble this year. All in dirt, as watering coir is a nause once or even twice a day. Also want to overwinter them this year so soil is ideal, nice and low maintenance. 
 
Got a few tomatoes on the go too, the wife planted fucking loads back in January and I've got a few I've adopted. There's a nice Irish version of Gardener's Delight (extremely sweet little cherry fruits), Skykomish (heavy cropping blight resistant) and Aurora, which is a bush variety from Siberia. Never grown bush tomatoes before, they are quite cute in a stumpy stocky kind of way. Amazing deep green colour. I'll try and take some shots of the lookers if I can.

Got a few jalepenos and cayenne on the go, nothing fancy but some of them are fruiting already.

Courgettes, tomatoes, broad beans, chard and carrots in the garden.

Been moving into a new house so not had a chance to do anything this year. I'm getting excited for next year though as I have a south facing garden with a lot of planting space.

Bought a load of grafted plants after the success of the ones I grew last year.  Got Naga, F1 Medina, Chocolate Habanero and Big Devil on the go and one non-grafted one I can't remember the name of just because it's fruits are purple.  All just outside on the decking again.
 
The Big Devil has already got fruit about 2cm diameter and 10cm long on it so it's certainly living up to its name.

Will film what I've got on the greenhouse at home & the allotment (!) later today. After only managing 7 or 8 reapers last year I had great germination and have about 50 plants this year, loads of different varieties too - a lot of morgugas, borg 9, Lucy, naga, yaki tiger, and just some generic habaneros, plus a lot of sweet ones for the first time, ace & gorgonzo or something like that - kept most of the hot ones at home & most of the sweets or not superhots are at the allotment - seeing as the hot ones are destined for my hot sauce!

Do you grow under cover on your allotment John? I know the sweet ones don't need to be coddled so much. If so, do you get the fear about high winds and shit?

I need to murder the squirrel and foxes that come into my garden; the squirrel has taken most of the strawberries and the foxes had a good dig in one of the veg patches, annihilating half the patch

I was chatting with some pest control guy once and he reckoned squirrels are the worst vandals he has to deal with. If you get them inside your attic, they demolish the whole gaff like they were extras in Romper Stomper

There's a mother and baby fox that live somewhere in the general vicinity of my garden and they're mashing up my veg patch 😠

I'd have the South East Association for Foxes Headquarters in my back garden if it meant I never had to extricate fishy little cat turds out of my vegetable beds again. 
 
Trying to think of a way to seriously scare the cats away for good that doesn't involve Apocalypse Now style cat heads on poles dotted about the garden

He does my back garden which is about 10 x 10 and my two front ones which are about double that for a onner. So I'd imagine yours would be a lot cheaper. DM me on twitter if you want his number. He lives by ours

I have some autoflower seeds. I'm thinking of doing a 20/4 light cycle. Are there any chillies or similar that can handle hot temperatures and 20 hours sunlight a day?
