Garden 34th Street: The Brazilian Peppers Are Popping!

Now that it's mid-September (and the days are getting shorter), some of the Brazilian hot pepper plants I kept in my window have decided to finally flower. I think the one above may be aji (like the ones in the garden upstate), but I'm not sure what the others are...next summer I WILL keep better track of things... Hopefully my little buzzing bee paintbrush has done its pollination job, and in a few days I'll have a bit of the tropics growing in my window.

I'm also hoping that I'll be able to keep all of the peppers going well into the fall (the chili hots are still producing both flowers and fruit), as I get more direct sunlight the lower the sun gets in the sky. Keep your fingers crossed!
