I know he loooks fine but this is his best side. Pablo was pushed over by a rather large gust of wind. I came home to find two limbs broken off and his face in the dirt. I've since tied him up with a shoe string but I can't garantee he will survive. The leaves still look healthy enough. I was pretty bummed about the whole thing. It's a learning experience and knowing how shallow the roots on a Trinadad Scorpion pepper plant are I should have provided support BEFORE this incident. We're still hopefull he will produce fruit by the end of the season and if he survives until next year Pablo will certainly have earned an award for toughest pepper plant around. Thanks mostly to my foolhardy attempt to bring him up from seed.
