A Halloween Pepper!

Alternative blog post title: A Plantastic Day Part 2!

My pepper plants' peppers finally ripened! So I didn't actually get pictures of them all because I gave two of them away to friends before they fruited (Midgy who ended up being pretty sizeable), and Shelly, who outgrew his pot-mates, and killed them (mwahaha). They grew up so fast :crying:

I was inspired by @Bambi's Halloween Pineapple. It's really great and I want plant-o-lanterns to be a thing so bad. 

 I now have a halloween pepper, originally intended to be a ^ _ ^ face, but obviously that didn't work. I fancy it to be more like a D: face, now. And yes, I did stick pins in his scalp after I scalped it off him to put the candle in, because it kept smothering the candle. I like to think it adds to the halloween aesthetic.

It reminds me almost of a depressed Litwick from Pokemon for some reason (or some other Pokemon I can't recall at the moment). :P But I like it! I do also have some things planned for when it's a little closer pumpkin (or plant :sly:) carving time, later in October.

Whoa, you have mad plant-growing skills! Looks glorious!

 

Awwww! It's so cute-iful! Did you name it?

Haha you give me too much credit!! I just made sure there was enough water, and that was about it XD 

And I am totally open to name suggestions!

Yes!! I definitely am getting the Litwick vibes!! Definitely will keep an eye out for other carvings later in October from you, then!

Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe I meant it reminds me of Phantump?

Gah it's right on the tip of my tongue. <__>

Also I know it's a different kind of pepper, but my name suggestion is Hallowpeno (Halloween and jalapeno :P).

Whoa!! Phantump is kind of spot on!! Haha, regrettably, I'm a bit behind on latest pokemon generations (I think the last game I played was Diamond, although I do play Showdown and have played some fan versions with newer generations included). And Hallopeno is genius, I LOVE it! Got a bona fide chuckle out of me

That still takes skill/dedication! I've only ever had one plant. I remembered to water it for about 3 days...XD

@BambiHallowpeno is brilliant!!!

This is kind of random, but I wonder if Butternut Buddy/Twin with your plant day will ever be a thing. @The Swimming Beard and I cannot seem to let this family tradition go...

What a great tradition! I bet there will be awesome stories from it in the future :)

I only hope to mortify my grandchildren with it.

PS your pepper reminds me of those ikea spoka lights. XD
