The first photo is of some of my jalapeno blossoms in very early July and the other photo is of them as of this morning and they're almost ready to pick 'lots of heat size' wise now.
I could wait until late Fall after they've completely matured to red and taste more mild but I love that hot green flavor the most. Okay, perhaps I should take a photo of one of these babies chopped and incorporated in one of my recipes, eh? ;-)

Yours look very healthy but look out for your friendly squirrel ~ I have my jalapenos (which I started from seeds from last year's jalapenos) in containers as well but the squirrels liked the new tender leaves and kept eating them. In mid July I surrounded the stems with chicken wire and the plants survived and are now 2 feet high and full of jalapeno blossoms and fruit.
I am going to plant those next time! They look so good! They have that beautiful green color I like so much. I am going to also use container gardening next season also for most of my vegetables!
