In Topic: Too much rain and ripening

12 July 2018 - 12:07 PM

If I could change the climate here, it would not be hotter, dryer, colder, wetter, or anything like that.  I would want to average it out / make more constant.  No more saving water in the ponds for when it doesnt rain.  No more over the top hot and then way too cool.  Just steady so I could adapt to one thing and actually plan around it.  Ye, that will happen.

People keep talking about climate change.  If anything, I think what is going on is climate weirdening.

Just get you a timer like this and attach it to your rain barrel or other elevated container. On mine, you can program 4 different zones to come on at different times of the day and stay on for however long you like.


That is perfect, thank you!  I thought those things were AC cause I usually see them attached to houses.  going to work on this right after season closes.

Some of the stuff folk mentioned here is amazing.  I had no clue anyone had it going on and making money from it.  Always figured it was about to be economically possible, not it is economically possible.

In Topic: Different pod genetics

10 July 2018 - 01:20 PM

Reading so much different information, I decided to look at peppers the same as people.  None of what I am about to say is concrete cause so many sources contradict each other.  Here goes.

If a plant is cross pollinated, the children (seeds) will be a combination of mama and papa dna just like people.  However, the pod of that plant will be pure mama dna like a woman's afterbirth.  However, there is some scientific studies which have found papa dna in the placenta.  So it is possible that the folk stories about changing heat via cross pollination might (might I say, might) change the heat because a lot of that is in the placenta.  However, most folk believe it will not change the heat or flavor and the studies I have read were on animals, not plants.

Cross pollination should not change the shape, color, or size of a pod.  That is all mama dna.  If a black man gets a white woman pregnant, the baby (seeds) might be black but the mama wont turn black.  This one I am absolutely sure of.  The placenta might change, but not the outside of the egg / pepper itself.

A self pollinated flower will not contain the same DNA as the mother.   It contains a recombined DNA of the mother.  If grown out / stabalized her dna is such a small variety that her pods will be about the same in appearance, but it is never exact dna. Again, just like with children, they dont all turn out exactly the same even with the same mother and father.


But please do not think I am an authority on this stuff.  I am only scratching the surface of cross breeding.  So many folk wiht so much more knowledge.
