Beautiful house.

Btw are you swedish or norwegian? I was just wondering because of your name change (Helvete means Hell in Swedish and Norwegian)

Helvete I like the Bahamian Goat X White bullet hab D7X C. chinense cross
That one should be interesting I would like to try some cross attempts this year .
None of my plants are going to be isolated so crosses are going to happen I kept this in mind while ordering seed but I would like to do a few intentional crosses like maybe a Bahamian got by white fatalii ,moa by red habanero just some thoughts

Nice to see an update, plants are looking healthy. Those Lucy's are really taking off. I have 6 up myself but nowhere near that far along. Wish I could find some damn Katie. Plenty on seed sites from over the pond but I'd be that one unlucky guy who ordered and whose seeds got confiscated. Hell, wish I could find a lot of things lol. I've finally joined Face Book, which I swore I'd never do, just to try and find some of the rare creations

I do have a few cross projects in the works, they are mostly secret for now but I'll likely be distributing some F2 seeds to a handful of people for one of them later this year.

Haha I'm going to have some goofy stuff this year, some perhaps not all that rare but hopefully by about July/August I will have a good seed stock to spread around of some of this stuff.

 

I'm very likely moving to Alaska later this year which is going to put a big dent in my pepper growing...the job will be "long term temporary" while I accrue a nice chunk of money and can return to Virginia to finish getting a degree in botany (hopefully with enough money to pay for a house and college with cash).

I'm also looking into how I can grow year round up there in Arctic conditions, I'm looking at moving to Fairbanks which apparently has a nice agricultural department there that is open minded to input from the citizen population there...I might actually have some fun with this life venture.

Great video Rich, The overwinters are looking awesome, good to see the aquaponics in there too. Think I'm gonna give up on mine for a while, dont have the time right now and until I can get an enclosure for it it seems pointless, the winds tore the plants up pretty good last year. Keep it green buddy!!

I haven't updated in a while.  There have been some cuts to my grow list, I'll update that eventually, as of right now it's still "under construction".  I'm planning a major move later this year and am trying to make my harvest more manageable in the midst of that.

I have 2 of them, both are about the same height. You can barely see them side by side in the group shot on the right.

Nice OW Fatali.  They seem to do very well on the OW regime.

 

You still will have a veery serious grow list, even with the modifications!

Good luck going forward, 'Fish!

Some shots of Operation Presidential Feces Extraction 2015.  It's composted horse manure from James Madison's Montpelier, I got 4 loads today, might go get some more next weekend or opt to get a load of alpaca manure from my neighbors instead.  I know the horse crap is composted, not so sure about the alpaca poo though.

 

Dark, loaded with worms (I broke open a chunk the size of a basketball and it had probably 100+ worms in it!)

And the stuff on the inside of the pile is just frosted white with mycos colonies.  I disked in a bunch on the 3300 sq ft plot and added more to the tomato bed and the trusty cinderblock raised bed.

 

The first shot is of Mons Skata itself.  Keep in mind that's not a tractor, is a full size front loader.  We're talking about literally tons of shit.

Wow... that is the bee's knees!!!!  If only I had access to some of that to go along with our mulch reserves :shocked:

 

Do you get it for free or some $$ per scoop?

Free just the gas to go get it, I know a guy that's a resident on the extended property. I used about 1/4 tank for 4 loads.

Just started 100 jalapeno seeds for the hell of it.  :crazy: (actually going to try to sell them off and whatever I have left over I'll be swimming in jalas later in the season)

 

Gonna start my final round of seeds tomorrow, mostly annuums but throwing in a couple of the chinense varieties that didn't germinate.  Like I said there are major cuts to my grow list but the bulk of the cool stuff is still on there. :)

 

pics coming
