#1607102 Growdown Throwdown 2019 Sri Lanka - Chilli Red!

Posted by Orekoc on 19 January 2019 - 10:01 PM

Stamps are going up on the 27th.  If you are low, go buy some of the forever stamps before they go up!

 

Do you want me to send you some?

Yeah I'm starting to run out of stamps now actually lol. Orekoc sent me some money for shipping too, I'm not sure I've matched what he sent. And I figured just sending them is faster.

That being said, everyone I sent seeds to better post pics. Lol

And if you haven't gotten seeds and its been more than a few days since you asked let me know. I really hope I got everyone.

Nah, we'll name it "Trent's Penis".  You will be famous.

It just occurred to me that if this works out and I arrive at a nice penis sweet pepper cultivar, I might not be remembered for the things I want to be remembered for. 

"Hey, that Trent guy, yeah he's the one that made those Giant Penis peppers."

 

sigh.

PM Walchit for seeds.

Is it too late to hop in on this one? If not, where can I find the seeds?

 




#1606808 A Harebrained Idea - Northerly Sky Peppers

Posted by Orekoc on 18 January 2019 - 11:37 PM

A friend was doing handyman/yardwork for someone in a HOA.  Found out what he wanted to do was against the rules.  So he read all the rules, went back to them and said, ok, I can do this according to the rules, they said yes. And I can do this, they said yes, I can also do this, they said yes.  He then said, well I'm going to do all of it, and it will look like crap, but it follows your rules.  Or you can let me do what I intended to do, which will look much better.....

 

They let him do what was "against" the rules, otherwise he would follow the rules and make an eyesore. 

 

Sometimes you can play their game and beat them.  YMMV.

I have some 000 padded envelopes that, as long as I spread everything out evenly in the envelope, and make sure it isn't thicker than 1/4 inch, and is flexible, should mail for two stamps.  I have one on it's way to Sawyer, who should let me know if they charged him postage due for it.

 

I've found it better to figure out the rules, put the proper postage on them, then drop them in a mail box, rather than take them in to the PO.  I've even sent over seas without any issues.

 

You were charged package rates, not envelope rates. Not sure if the size of the envelope put you there or not.

Sorry, that didn't come across the way I meant it.  Wasn't accusing you of that.  There have been some seed scammer of late, so more of a warning.

 

Most likely you will be offered some seeds.

 

Check out http://www.semillas.de, they have a good rep.  Also, White Hot Peppers - All Chili Pepper Seeds

 

Not sure if there are commercial sources of P. Dreadie.  I'll be looking for some next year.  Already have too much for this year's grow.

 

And I'll shut up now, since I'm getting foot in mouth disease. :seeya:




#1606298 Shishto Peppers at supermarket

Posted by Orekoc on 17 January 2019 - 12:52 PM

What? In Seattle?  Heck, I've found Shishtos here in Salem. 

 

Pepper roulette!   Fushimi is another of the Japanese peppers I find intriguing.  Haven't seen either at any local stores, unfortunately.

So even though the PO said it had been delivered days ago, it wasn't.  How nice.  And so much for the tracking system. 

 

Any system is only as good as the humans using it.

Usually 1 out of 10 or so have some heat. I think they are usually fried.

In case you don't know, pretty much never buy seeds from ebay or amazon.  No matter what they call them, they are usually a bell pepper.

 

There are some reputable pepper seeds sellers, both in Europe and here in the States. Check out the vendor vault for members rating of them.

 

Also, people here are generous, if a bit leery of newbies, cause a number of people show up to beg seeds and never participate in the forum.

 

Best of luck.

Thanks. Now I want P. Dreadie seeds.
Need to search them out.
No luck on Amazon.

edited to correct spelling.

Hi,  Best of luck.

 

Trident chilli is in England, and is a bonnet fan.  He would be a good source for info.  Hopefully he'll see your question and speak up.

Hi,
As per title.
Looking for flavour this year. Last year was the mental hotties. Enough!
What and where to get the seeds is the question?

A cold beer? It is suppose to be an empty case, with you passed out in a barcalounger! Zeus, everyone knows this. :rolleyes:

Thought I'd post a shot of the main table, which is amazingly clear right now with a bunch of plants in the shower after getting a minor flush.

 

I can't explain why there isn't a cold beer on that table right now, given that it is 5:00pm, I can only promise to try to do better next time.

Yes, and I've bought from some of them in the past.  And will buy from them in the future.

 

But this is Lady Salsa! 

They are other manufacturers.
