Topping chili pepper plants for higher yield

Chili plant topping Chili plant topping is a technique used to promote plant branching and preventing top heavy plants, that could break because of heavy fruit yield or wind, ultimately leading to a higher yield. The main stem is cut bellow the firt "Y" forming on it. When the tip of the plant is removed, plant will reroute it's growth hormone auxin lower down the stem, making the plant branch out. Most of the hormone is stored at the tip, so it will take couple of days after topping until the plants recovers and you will see new leaves and branches forming. As I found out, not all varieties respond to topping in the same way. Here I'm gonna discuss my results and mistakes.

RCS Titanium spring for Ibis Mojo HD

Ibis mojo hd titanium spring

Two years ago, I've switched to a coil spring shock on my Ibis Mojo HD and never looked back. I always wanted to upgrade it to a Titanium spring, but it was kind of difficult to find one compatible with RS Vidid at the required length. Recently I've changed my shock to Fox RC4 and found one spring available in an online auction.

I took away 2 things: 1. pushing for one more ride in a bikepark when it's raining and you are really tired isn't a good idea; 2. 5cm (2") L-shaped scar on my left palm resulting from an open fracture.

My basic MTB Kettlebell workout

kettlebell

This is my basic Kettlebell routine that I do 3-5 times per week, depending on the number of rides I can get in. I've started with this Kettlebell routine 3 months ago as my new year resolution, and so far I'm pleased with the results. The first couple "spring" rides (it's still snowing outside) were much better than I expected. I was able to do 30+km rides with over 1000vm of elevation straight away and I felt really good on the bike.
