Besides my [not insignificant] overwinters and plants I already have going, I may only start these twelve seedlings of my absolute favorite bhut and bhut crosses:

Oh, this is wonderful. I can't wait. Good luck Charles. I'm excited to see how they turn out. I'm sure they'll be picture perfect.

I will follow with great interest as always Charles!

I've got some very nice bhuts/nagas seeds that will hit the dirt soon as well :)

 

Good luck

Patience, patience, I'll let the pods speak for themselves when the time comes ;) .

Thanks Chuck, thanks Datil!

Maybe... I germinated these fresh from the pods just to see how fast they'd come up.  But looking back at my 2016 glog, I already had things going at this time last year.

Very wise cutback selection! I too plan to reduce a ton this year and focus more on what I love to cook with and makes the best powders.

Haha, funny.  Mostly when I talk about Bhut Jolokias people just roll their eyes, odd bunch around here aren't we?

I just have to try to avoid spending too much time looking at my seed stash... I was thinking of growing some peach crosses I made, etc. etc.. :rolleyes:

Thanks for stopping by.  Bhuts are great.  Check out my past glogs on here to get a sense of what I'm into.

I should probably manage my messages.  My apologies if I haven't responded to anyone reading this, I go through periods of non-responsiveness.  I do have a few varieties I wouldn't mind seeing other people with glogs grow out...
