Okay, back in the saddle again.  I checked out of this forum last September,

when my wife and I went on an 8-week vacation.  We had a blast, then I came

home to two months of yard work to catch up on, and holiday season to

contend with   :doh:   

 

I just this week finished grinding up all the dry pods from last season.  Managed

to get my seeds in to soak on Jan. 15th, and into the Jiffy Pellets on Jan. 16th.

I'm going for fewer varieties this season, but 3 or 4 plants of most varieties that

I grow out.  No small pod peppers this year, just too labor intensive for the results,

although I have some awesome small pod powders laid away.   Speaking of which,

I have so much powder I'm considering packaging and selling some this summer.  

I'm going to try to sell my fresh pods this Fall, so maybe no more powder production

until I need some, and then, just my favorites.  

 

2016 grow list and germination record:

 

Pod name                                             Source                                               seeds sown            germinated  

 

Aji Amarillo ................................ Peruvian Market, 4th gen. ................................... 6 ......................... 6 ................  100%

Yellow Scorpion......................... SpankyColts 2012, 4th gen. ................................ 9 ......................... 7 ................    77%

Scotch bonnet, TFM ................. Trippa 2013, 4th gen. .......................................... 9 ......................... 6 ................    66%

Fatali ......................................... Peppermania, 2012, 2nd gen. ............................. 9 ......................... 9 ................   100%

7 Pot Burgundy ........................ Sawyer 2014, 2nd gen. ....................................... 12 ......................  11 ................   92%

Red Rocoto .............................. Peruvian Market 2015, 1st gen. ........................... 6 .......................  5 .................    84%

JA Red Habanero .................... Devv/WalkGood 2014, 3rd gen. .......................... 12 ...................... 12 ................  100%

Bhut Jolokia Red ..................... SpankyColts 2012, 3rd gen. ................................ 12 ...................... 12 ...............  100%

Primo ....................................... MGold 2012, 2nd gen ........................................... 6 ........................  6 ...............  100%

Mystery Cross ......................... Trippa, 2014, F4 .................................................... 9 ........................  9 ...............  100%

Scotch Bonnet, Chocolate ...... GaGrowhead 2015, 2nd gen. ............................... 9 ........................  7 ................   77%

Padron ..................................... Spain 2015, 1st gen. ........................................... 12 ...................... 10 ................   84%

Bhut Jolokia, Chocolate .......... GaGrowhead, 2nd gen. .......................,................ 6 .......................  5 ..................  84%

 

Total ........................................................................................................................ 117 .................. 105 ...............  89.7%

 

The first seeds began germinating on Jan. 22nd and continued until Feb. 5

 

1/29 - First watering of earliest germinating plants

 

2/2 - Begin light fertilizer routine on older seedlings:  Cal-Mag, 1 tsp / gal.

                                                                                          AK Fish Fertilizer, 1 tsp / gal. 

     - Start fan on taller seedlings

Good luck! You joining the growdown this year?

Not sure, yet, fellas.  I don't think so, since all my containers are 

spoken for by the 39 plants I'll have this season.

Good luck.

Good luck this season!

Good Luck with your grow , bro !      :onfire:

Thanks, brothers  - Hope you all have a great season.

 

Cool list.

Thanks for the kind words, but luck always figures into the equation at least a little!

 

The list is small, but consists of my favorites from the past four seasons.

It's good to be back on the forum, though I'll probably complain about not having

enough time to dedicate to following everyone's grow logs!  

 

Good growing your way, my friend

 

Great varieties... Looking forward to following your progress. Good luck!

 

Many thanks, Bear.  Hope you have a great season, as well.

 

 

 

Thanks, Ronaldo - going to ChiliFest next Fall?

Thanks, bro - will check out your grow log to see what's going on.  I've found

Black Gold Seedling Mix or Jiffy Pellets to work best for me.  Get about the

same results with both.  My germination rates really shot up when I started

using a heat mat.

 

Good luck going forward.

 

I'm in. Glad to see ya back Paul.

 

Thank you, Jeff.  Hope your season is off to a good start.

Ahhh!! But 39 is an odd number... do you not find 40 a much more elegant number?  :party:

Thanks for the welcome and kudos, you are very kind, indeed.

 

I hope you have a stunner of a season, as well.  Your pizza creations

are getting better and better; the pics are mouth-watering good!
