Last but not least come the two at opposite ends of the spectrum

Carolina Reaper
3 planted
4 sprouted
Pepper Gardeners
(there was a half seed so I thought I'd toss it in and it sprouted also, giving me 4 sprouts)

Poblano
0 planted
0 sprouted
seed Survivor
(I never received the seeds I ordered)




Over all I would buy again from most of these sellers. Definitely buying more from pepper gardeners and Everwilde farms.
I will however not be buying from seed survivor in the future.


Hope you all enjoyed my findings so far. I'll keep you all posted on any new progress and changes in my opinion.

From my garden to yours keep it spicy!

Sprouts


Well, I'm sure  just like any other proud papa I'm gonna show some pics of my new additions so here it goes and I am just bubbling over with excitement


First up is a lil jalapeño.


Here's some thai chile
(not sure what that thing is in the background tbh)


And all three of my Carolina Reaper seeds have sprouted within days of each other.

So as you can all see big things are growing here at Big Diehl Peppers.

I'll keep ya posted on any new sprouts and once everything has had ample time I'll give some reviews on the places I snagged these seeds from.

Where do you Think I should Look To Sell?

A small Pit-Stop Store in my hometown, Defiance PA, has agreed to put some of my peppers up on their shelf, so far we've only sold one through there but Now I want to look other places to get in to.




I also got a tip about a local Pittsburgh Flea-Market that is only 10$ to set up a table, So next spring look for this Diehl when your out hunting other deals

I'm also looking into getting a table for next years pepper farm festival. But only if I can make enough product to make it worth it.

So Where else should I look? I'm still working on getting some back-stock to get on Amazon but I'd really like to be local, anyone know of somewhere that wont cost me an arm and a leg for a table?
