Pepper Update and Tomato Worm Tragedy!

The peppers are also doing great. The only exception is my favorite plant, the one that I have been babying all year, the Bhut Jolokia, has met its demise. It was eaten by a tomato worm overnight. I have more in the garden, so not a huge loss. Biggest issue is that the Bhut only have a 10% germination rate, so they are hard to come by.
