A couple days ago I dug one of my ghost chili plants up and put it in a pot with potting mix. I will be overwintering it indoors and put it back in the ground next spring. Can't imagine how big it will get next year. Bhut Jolokia is the biggest variety of pepper I have grown, at least twice the size of all the rest, even the cayennes and jalapenos. Should pick a few peppers off this plant during the winter too, if it all goes well.

That is leaning against the truck, for size reference.

it has been wilted pretty bad, and will probably lose some leaves, but I expect it to live. Did this to a habanero a couple years ago, and it wilted and dropped some leaves, but made a full recovery.

well I had considered camo paint \:D

I have a feeling my truck will become only more recognizable over time though...

Long as my fishin holes aren't leaked on here, it's all good!

Well I neglected to water it indoors and now it's dead and has a bunch of peppers still attached thy are drying out. Oh we'll, deer season makes my green thumb go a bit brown, or red if I happen to be gutting a deer.... Green thumb will come back in mid February when I'm getting ready to plant next years seeds.

That sucks. I was interested to see how long it could live.

Curious though, what did you do with all the peppers? I can't imagine trying to use that many hot peppers

just dry em and save em, most of their use so far has gone to convincing coworkers to try them! \:D worth growing em again!

I still want to use some of them to make an extract by soaking in grain alcohol for a while, then straining them out, and reducing the alcohol down to a very concentrated extract... now, I'm not sure what the use for that would be, I guess you could just put a drop of it in your pot of chili to add more kick. Would be nice for serving a spicy food like that to people where everyone has their own preferred level of heat... also I could put a few drops into a coworkers drink, but only if I was really that mean and they really deserved it! ;\)

Not sure what else to do with it but I would like to add a little ghost chili flakes to a jerky marinade sometime. Just gotta go very very easy on it, because it overpowers everything that you add it to.

Oh and I don't always fish close to the truck. Might go 1/2 mile, or 3 miles, so nobody knows my spots
