Just back from 2 weeks in Hawaii. Now it's go time.
I'm hoping by not starting on Jan 1 that my plants won't get rootbound and they will grow in stride until May.
Seeds meet water on March 1st.

24 hour soak before paper-towel and heat.

In Hawaii, I took every opportunity to eat some great fresh fish!
Fave's were Umeke's Poke Bowls in Kona

and fresh caught Ahi Belly tacos from South Maui Fish Company in Kihei
https://i.imgur.com/JiXeury.jpg
Some of the best I've had

Also I wanted to ask about the "Hawaiian" Pepper
a frutescens? They were selling Ag inspected seeds everywhere.
Are they any good? I passed on them this time.
I talked to a girl at a market selling not-so-hot hot sauce. She didn't know much of anything. Said they weren't native(I figured, nothing is), the peppers have been "evolving" on HI for "hundreds of years"
Any one have any experience with them?

Edit sorry about the pic links...imgur apparently updated and I can't get good links on my iPhone.

Trepadeira do Werner, Aji Limo Red, Aji Limo Yellow, and CGN21500 are the first to pop this year.

Seeds soaked for 24 hours, then germed on papertowel, and I popped them into solo cups with FFOF+extra chunky perlite.

Now its a race to the surface.

Yes it is! That's how I used mine too, Matt. Great on ice cream too ;)

Welcome back from Hawaii Matt! Did you pick up any new ideas for hot sauces while you were there?
The Hawaiian Bird Chile is a Frutascens variety that grows wild on at least some of the islands. The birds eat the ripe pods and spread the seeds. From what Pinoy tells me, they have pretty typical Frut flavor and heat, and make great fermented sauces.
Glad you liked the "Moose Breath" recipe. ☺

actually the only seeds that have not germ'd at all, have been the 7pot Cinder...i'll have to try again.

 

I chose my horse for the growdown and potted her up from the aerogarden into a 1gallon of FFOF+perlite.

From my experience last year, Matt, they get more than 6 weeks in a Solo Cup, they get root bound. I was transplanting into gallon containers long before May.

...but they seemed gleefully rootbound, if that's any comfort!

Thanks for the recipe Matt!

 

Chicken looks great too! We use our favorite BBQ sauce with honey and whatever powder the wife adds. I can assure you, yours were hotter :fireball:

Craigslist Light upgrade...T12's no more...

gJmf1M2.jpg

the gentleman i bought these from said the fixtures were relatively new so the ballasts and bulbs should be good for awhile. His office just decided to upgrade to LED's.

 

So i snagged these 3 six-lamp fixtures with bulbs and 6 extra bulbs as well for $35. I really only need 2 fixtures so if a ballast or bulbs go bad i've got extra.

 

are 5000k T8's ok for garden starts and maybe over winters? they are GE Ecolux w/Starcoat F32T8/SPX50ECO 5000k

 

Now i just need to do a little construction and build myself a couple new shelves and hang the lights.

So grow area is roughly 4'w x 2'd x 8'h

with these new lamps i'd like to build some new shelves. should i build 2 shelves with room for about 3.5 vertical feet of growth or 3 smaller shelves? I'm hoping to put up some foam board insulation with reflective mylar or that reflective bubblewrap to help keep things a little warmer. basement runs 60-67 depending if the lights are on and what the temp outside is.

how far away do you usually keep T8's from the canopy top? with my T12's they were basically touching the leaves.

just a couple inches from top of tallest plants if you got a fan on them.. otherwise 3 - 4 inches above the tallest.. which you may have to top a few to keep them all level in height.. IMO.
