What to do with 170 chili plants

hi,

anyone from the southwest loves the green chilies roasting in

the supermarkets. So in march I planted a few and then a few more.

I thought they would die, but now I have 170 plants, If you plant them

at 3 foot spacings in rows two feet apart thats a lot of space. They also require

lots of sun and water. What to do??

And your username is one2many? More like 150 too many. :)

I'd say offer them to anyone who'll come pick them up. I can swing by after May 30. I know some other folks who'd be happy to take some off your hands too.

Edit: assuming these are plants that'd be ok on a balcony? Are they in the ground now or in little pots?

If you got a large piece of land with lots of sun, Pepe and the boys

would like to talk busness.

I could plant them on the side of the road, but I

am sure that if someone grabed one and the next day had

hot but ..there is a paragraph somewhere against it.

Anyone have a big garten on the East side of Munich that

they want to rent to make the planet Green? Green chilies

that is?

To the last three posters, and others:

Apparently you misunderstood, as I did, that the OP was a generous TTer who was looking to share his pepper stash. If you reread the posts, it becomes clear that he is looking for someone to provide land, water and snail maintenance for him, for which you will be rewarded with (possibly) a couple peppers for your effort.

Don't expect any PM answers.

I went by today and picked up an estimated 100 plants, gave some to colleagues at work, gave some to a couple chilehead buddies, and my balcony is full and happy. OP has no more to give, he's keeping the rest. Good luck with the move man, glad you finally discovered your green thumb -- I'll post on the Munich 2012 Chili Cookoff thread how the plants grow, as I may have chile peppers to give away later this summer, and that'll be where to find the folks who need them...

I picked up a few of the plants, and here are some of the latest chiles!!

For sure one is a jalapeno and one is a green chile plant, but not sure about the other one...

I have been off the internet for about 3 months. Thanks T-comm

for your excution.

I will close this out by hoping that eveyone that ended up

with chilies and had a good harvest. My 80+ plants are sill going good

and it looks like this weekend will be the last. I still have over

a hundred chilies... Next year I will scale back but I am still not sure

what that means, maybe only 500 plants?? Anyway I will go with the

main stream NM big jim and Sandia. As soon as the snow falls I am sure

that the lights go Up, the wind starts to blow, and I will have to be checked

for what ever they check people like me for. Thanks Gen and all that took

over the plants and next year will be even smaller (bigger).

Hi,

Since you seem to be the chili expert, I was hoping you could tell me how well jalapenos grow here? Is there some correlation between a humid/ mild climate and peppers' spiciness?

Thanks!
