Repotting and harvest time

So my "Christmas Datil" has finally turned red. I think it is time to harvest tonight!

At the same time, half of the 2008 peppers are in their final large pots. With a little help from Carl.

First repotting

Time to repot malagueta, Pinched nose, Pimenta cambuci, aji yuquitania and goatsweed! Almost like spring in the air.

I believe I always say - "Aren't the plants growing faster than usual this year".

As always, they have stretched a little too much towards the light. So I repot them 'deep', leaving just the leaves over the soil.
