 Wow Tristen I had no idea you moved home . They say it is one if the not the best places on earth to live . Just amazing environment you have . 

 

Wish they were a little more lax at customs we could hook u up with a plethora of seeds . Keep it spicy my friend. 


Jamie :cheers:

Well this season has been challenging ... New environment and the need for an upgrade on the roof on the greenhouse has meant lots of stunted baby plants ... And losing 41 seedlings to rats ( have caught 5 so far since) !!.. plus a few to slugs and snails.

Have managed to coax about 20 plants through the chilli Armageddon.. but they are slow ... A big rethink for next season in the pipeline at the moment ... But unfortunately my hopes of replenishing my seed stocks of my varieties took a big hit ... I hope I get viable seed again next season

  Everything on this glog = Just F%£*king marvelous.

Man, I feel your pain wrt the rats.  When it turned cold here, I brought in probably two or three hundred plants, volunteer seedlings to knee-high.  Thought I had the rat situation under control, but the cold brought in a couple more and they just mowed down the plants.  They got wise to the traps, so I've had to resort to poison.  That seems to have worked, but it may be too little, too late for the plants.  Good luck to you on your plants' recovery.

As to your stunted plants, my plants got a late start last season and I had some say they wouldnt mature far enough to produce. They all ended up producing though

Hi, I am very curious about Bih Jolokia (pepperlover) and Bhut jolokia Orange (Pepperlover) that I'll cultivate even in 2016.

I've just grown in 2015 Bhut jolokia Indian Carbon By PepperLover, I've never heard a so intense peach aroma, very good!

 

Good luck for your 2016 season.

Yikes! I feel for ya Tristan... I had to deal with Voles in my garden patch last season too. The little bastiges tunneled all through my plot in the community garden chewing up my carrots and greens, and turning my irrigation valve box into an underground bunker. John's right... they do get wise to traps, so I'll spread out my plants a bit more this year so they won't have as many places to hide. It'll mean more work since I'll have to put down more mulch, but so be it...

Hey, Tristen!  Just checking back in to THP - been awhile!

 

Good to see your grow got off to a good start; should be well along by now.

 

Good luck with the Scotch Bonnet TFM, Scotch Bonnet Chocolate, Red Rocoto,

and Mystery F3.  I'm growing all those as well, so it will be fun to get a glimpse

into the future reading your grow log.  

 

Glad to see you in a decent growing situation this season, brother!


Later:  Sorry to hear of your trouble with the greenhouse:  Please call upon me

for any seeds you need - I'll be happy to send some your way.


I hope some of the varieties I mentioned made it through okay.  

Would you like me to send some seeds for those right away?

Hey Romy ... Cheers for the kind words bro ... Yeah its a pretty great place to live and raise kids for sure... Its can be a little cool where I am to get really great consistant chilli results outside but with a greenhouse its great ... And the summer we have just had was perfect and warm ... Only wish I had had some plants outside .. But I have my spot picked for next season :D

 cheers bro ... Unfortunatly not such a bountiful harvest or none so far ... I live and learn .. Need to restock some seeds then onto next years plan!

 cheers sawyer! Rat control done .. But I hear another one in our ceiling just started up ... The traps are coming back out! 

As to your stunted plants, my plants got a late start last season and I had some say they wouldnt mature far enough to produce. They all ended up producing though

 thanks bro ... Yeah I have a mini harvest in the making now but I need to suss some extra heat and light to finish it I think

 cheers for stopping in .. Can't help with any comparisons on those varieties as I haven't had any pods from them

Cheers Paul! Yeah tough season of lessons and trial and error in the new environment... I have learnt plenty and realised procrastination in the shorter season only makes any problems 10x worse. (Remind me of that next season please ;). )
As for the seeds ... I am looking at my options since pepperlover seems to be out of stock on a good portion of her listings I am unsure how or where I will be restocking for next season just yet .. Thanks for the offer ... I am already in your debt from previous supply runs :D
