surprisingly I don't have seeds for mustard hab. are they tasty?
 
Mike, hopefully you have luck germinating the D3 Goat f4. It's been pretty spotty. Maybe 5-10% germ rate. I think I picked the pods too early trying to get seeds out to sentencedtoburn in New Zealand. 


I consider them the best tasting pepper. Pm incoming

yea those giants are ridiculous. i had to ship the smaller pods as some wouldn't fit in the sfrb's at all. 

 

I don't remember what #4 looked or tasted like either anymore. I'll have to go back into the glog and see what color it even was.

Hi Mike, good grow to ya this year!

 

I'm chomping at the bit to get started, but promised myself a more relaxed process this time, so no seeds for me til March One (that's a month early for zone 3). I was herding cats in 1 gallon pots & bags last year.

 

Success, mang!

I found the pic of the box you sent. Maybe your eyes are better than mine ;)

Idk what that big red one is on the left, but the yellow orange one next to it says #2 then the one next to it is #3. So maybe #4 is the next one lol

Thanks, guys! :cheers:

I also added a Red Galapagos Habanero to my list this year because I couldn't help myself, haha. Seeds courtesy of Bhuter; thanks again, bro! Nigel's review of that pod officially decided it for me. I think I'm gonna grow 2 more plants too, but haven't decided on which two yet. I'm leaning towards another OBEAH (from Genetikx) for one of them. Possibly a Farmer's Market Jalapeño (TGCM) for the other. If for nothing else, just as a novelty. I'd really like to watch one of those grow up close over the course of a season. Maybe a Chocolate Brain Strain (TGCM). I can't make up my freakin' mind, hahaha

Got everything soaking in the water / hydrogen peroxide mix now. They'll be hitting the dirt tomorrow. Here's a link about gardening w/ hydrogen peroxide (with ratios) that I've used pretty frequently. Good for soaking seeds, fighting fungus gnats, etc.:
http://www.using-hyd...n-peroxide.html

If it were me, I would make room for both the Farmers market jalapeño, and the chocolate brainstrain. You'll have a good mix of flavor, aesthetics, and heat between those two plants.

What ya got for lighting?

Wait til you see this "beauty" I've got for lighting, when I pull it out (probably next week), hahaha. When I bought my house, I found two 2'x4' T12 four bulb light fixtures, that came out of an office ceiling, in my attic. Pulled out the hardwiring and replaced w/ regular plug in cords. 6500K bulbs at 16 on / 8 off costs me about $10/month. They were free, and they work great, but wait until you see these things, haha! They look like dinosaurs compared to some people's setups here. If I had to guess, I'd say they're probably from the 1970's :rofl: Hey, they work!!! ;)

Can't wait to see the lights, Mike!!! Haha, they sound awesome!

Don't even be jealous, bro! 😜
I've got another one of these bad boys too, that I might be willing to part with, if the price is right :rofl: Freakin' thing weighs about 40lbs, lol

IMG_6241.JPG

Finally getting a few hooks popping up after about a week, so it's time to set the lights up
IMG_6242.JPG

I really need to keep a closer eye on watering these things this year. The setup is in the same room as my pellet stove and the cells dry out really quick. I fried about 1/2 of my seedlings last year because of that, haha

How many plants of each variety are you shooting for? Looks like a hell of a good hot sauce season!

2 Douglah and 2 Choc SB (< those are my main "sauce plants" ;) ) and I think there's like 4 or 5 yellow Bonnets up there. A few different Goats. Mostly just one of everything listed, except for the first two. Might double up one or two more varieties though.

Looks like a hell of a good hot sauce season!

Thanks, dude! That's the plan! 😜

I'll probably make some smoked powders, jellies, and salsas out of the Pubescens and superhots. I can't believe I didn't even make one batch of jelly last year. Still have a few pounds of pods in the freezer though ;)

Why is it we spend all this time growing and then run out of time to process everything?

 

No matter, we'll still grow way too many regardless ;)
