Thanks. Most of the stuff we had laying around. The big metal stands came from the landfill. They are what the bulk wire for the trash baler come on. I can get all I want for free. The pvc that the tomatoes are staked to were leftover from plumbing the house. Some of the cattle panel and white wire fence, came from the landfill, some of it was laying around the farm, from previous owner. The big white tubs on the far end are cattle mineral tubs, also free from the landfill.:D Hubby works at the landfill, so I have access to all kinds of cool stuff.;) FREE!

Thanks Minnie. The bhuts you need to start really early, especially in
your zone.

Seedplanter, scorpions are just as hot as bhuts. There is one strain
hotter than bhuts. I'll have some seeds later this summer.

I started the bhuts this year and last on/around 2/3. Last year I had aphids in the house which gave the peppers trouble but this year all plants were awesome. last year I only got bhuts off the plant in a pot- not even in the garden on black plastic! This year I sold all the bhuts but one and it is in a pot on cement in full sun. My peppers are just starting- I have picked some hungarian, 1 peener, couple thai and some bananas. So I am pretty proud of my bhut that is starting to fruit. I doubt anyone has fruit on their habs yet around here! Many tomatoes don't even have fruit yet.
