Remember, you can be the bee!  Carry the pollen you want to the flower.  Be the bee!

#1633465 What is digging into my potted peppers? Dirt flung out of pot, shallow holes.

Posted by Orekoc on Today, 12:12 AM

Isn't if funny how people bring the problems with them, when they are running away from them.


Here in Oregon we get Californians fleeing California because they are sick of it.  Then they complain about all the things they ran away from not being here. 

The last place I lived in had a lot of really bad neighbors. Their children dug up my plants. Aside from being small children, they had two other things in common. One was that they moved from Chicago so their families could have a better (safer) life here.



#1633464 Can anyone bring me up to speed as to what has happened since 2011?

Might be worth overwintering a plant, growing it under lights, for flowering and pods.  It could pay for itself!

In Denmark we usually see people wanting to buy a couple of them for up to 10 x that amount for some random chili tasting at work or whatever - it's mostly outside the growing season though :D


#1633442 Windchicken's 2019 NOT a glog...🤠

Posted by Orekoc on Yesterday, 08:39 PM

There is no failure.  Just unexpected results.


No overall Glog for my whole garden.


I have a "thread" where I'm following just the progress of my volunteer peppers.



The rest of my garden is a mish-mash of searching the vast world of peppers.  I'm still at the point where I feel like I'm not trying hard enough if I don't have a lot of failures.

Next summer you should grow a bunch of Carolona Reapers and sell them for $5 for 20 grams.  You could make a fortune!

The same shop sells Carolina Reapers at $5 for 10gms.


That is $500 per kilo (2.2 lbs)

Wowser! You Aussies have it all!

If you're looking to replenish your seed stocks with fresh seeds check out Coles supermarket. They have a very impressive selection of peppers.



For a few bucks you could walk out with a lot of varieties.

Thanks Trent.  I can't remember for sure, but I think all 6 seeds came up for me, so I'll grow them all and see what I get.  F2 is where the fun is at.


Yessir, new genetics. Those are F2 now. Was a Turkish Cayenne x ???? cross. One of 250 plants grew little dicks. Was definitely cayenne genetics on half; no idea what the donor pollen came from.


If I understand F2 genetics correctly you'll likely have a wide range of phenotypes on that generation so may need to grow quite a few to get a new penis cultivar.


If I luck out and get a successful penis pepper progeny (I'm growing out about 200 of them), I'm going to try back crossing it to turkish cayenne again, as well as trying new F1 cross to Tekne Dolmasi, and Aleppo, in the hopes of "enlarging" the pheno further. :)

Hey Trent, meant to ask you.  The Penis pepper seeds that came as an extra, were they from the unknown cross you had last year, or what?  Thanks.

Tell people you can only sell them the Bradfords if they save the seeds and return them to you.  Of course, they will most likely be crossed with your other watermelons. :mope:


... I'm hoping people will want the Bradfords, I've been looking into those for the past 2 years, since I first heard about them.

Old copies of the Joy of Cooking have directions on how to dress a squirrel.  Free protein.

There are two secrets to success.


1.  Never tell them everything you know.



The suspense is killing me, who won?

I have corn snakes that I'm looking to rehome.  I'm just not taking proper care of them, plus OCD.  I have too many as well. :eek: :(


So many issues that were never diagnosed as a kid.  Mostly cause I'm so old, no one knew about them, back when god was in short pants. :violin:

Mystery "Twilight Zone" is trying t bloom. The leaves are so dense the flowers are having a hard time opening.


Makes it a good chance they won't be crossed pollinated!

Yeah, getting old you'll find you need to write things down.  Then you'll forget the list.  When you find the list, you'll wonder why you wrote down "take bee photos".  Getting old isn't for the weak.

Nice work Brandon!


Love your place, I think you're gonna kill it this season ;)


I still need to remember to get hose bee pics...maybe I should write that down..LOL
