#1162050 Pepper Poll (which should I enter in the Fair)

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 12 May 2015 - 02:28 PM

 

Personally I feel a nice pot - with few decorations that shows off the healthy vibrant plant - would be the best route to go.  Something classy, perhaps with an information card attached that details the plants origins, uses, etc.  If I'm judging I don't want to miss the plant for the pot ya know?  

 

 yeah, personally I could care less about the pot its in usually(as long as its big enough for the plant in it)

However they are giving 20/100 points to the Container it's in (which I think is dumb)

I'm liking the idea about a detailed information card.

 

please keep the suggestions coming everyone




#1162000 Pepper Poll (which should I enter in the Fair)

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 12 May 2015 - 12:31 PM

So, my wife asks me this morning if I am going to enter any of my Pepper plants in the Fair this year. I responded with: I hadn't even thought of that... I don't know which one I would enter.

 

& That's where this Idea came from.

 

I know I'm new here, but I'm hoping for your opinions on which Pepper you think would be the best to enter into the State Fair

 

Here are the Stipulations:

 

 

It has to be in a pot no bigger than 16" x 16"

Entries will be judged on quality, culture, stage of development and attractiveness of container

it will be on display end of August through beginning of September and should be fruiting @ this time

 

Also, I won't be able to check on it regularly and it will be there for about 3 weeks, but I'm guessing they have someone there to water it when it starts to droop.

 

This is how it will be Scored:

Score Criteria

Culture and condition......................................... 50 Pts.

Size, shape and development.............................30 Pts.

Container............................................................20 Pts.

TOTAL 100

 

This entry is mostly for fun, & I don't think I am a Master Gardener or anything.

The prizes are minimal.

 

But...

Wouldn't it be Fun knowing you helped pick out what I entered, if I do end up winning any ribbons ?

 

 

 

Now, Pink Tiger (beautiful plant) immediately comes to mind but I'd like to enter something more stable (& this is my first year growing that one from these seeds)

So...

Here is my Grow list for this year, and a Pic of where the plants are currently @ in size as of a few days ago

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 10 May 2015 - 09:02 PM

I'm not sure if this belongs here, however with the way my wife and her mom were  :shocked:  looking @ me I'm guessing they thought what I was doing to my cake was Really :crazy:  weird...

#1160926 BREAKFAST!!!

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 10 May 2015 - 01:23 AM

Okay, so I didn't make this(anyone want to take a guess where we were)but it was good breakfast, or maybe it was just the Sauce.  ;)

 

Chicken%20Fajita%20Omelet_zpsdhlsdksn.jp

Chicken Fajita Omelet

LDHS%20red%20label%20with%20Hash%20Brown

Hash Browns

 

 

:D  Breakfast with LuckyDogHotSauce  :dance:

The waiter looked at me sideways when I asked for extra Serrano's, and stood there staring as I chomped into it when he did bring them (like he'd never seen a White guy eat a seared Serrano)  or maybe it was that I brought my own bottle of LuckyDogHotSauce

 

I ended up using half that Bottle of red label on just My breakfast (should have brought pepper powders too)

 

lol, I'm getting hungry again looking at my own pics  :lol:

 

 

 

 




#1160390 ATTN: Illinois and Wisc growers. Reg Promix onsale at Menards

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 08 May 2015 - 06:16 PM

Thanks for the heads up, I'll be picking up a couple.

These should be good to compare to the mix I made.

I'll probably still end up adding more Perlite, some Mushroom compost, and Worm Castings to this when I pot them up though.




#1160340 my 2015 Grow

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 08 May 2015 - 04:55 PM

Okay, I am new here, and have never done a Grow Log.  This isn't my first time growing peppers, it's my first time trying to keep a Log of it.

so Here's an attempt at a Grow Log.

 

I say Attempt because I can't find most of my pictures from February through April  :mope:

 

So here is the few Pics I can find, and I will update when I find the others (think they might be on the Wife's phone) as well as updating more as the season progress's

#1160325 Lucky Dog Hot Sauce

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 08 May 2015 - 04:12 PM

Thanks Scott,

Just received my order

Ate a couple tablespoons of the Pink Label, on some leftover Turkey as it was what the Wife served for Lunch today.

(I contemplated just opening up a bottle and taking a pic of me eating one of the Starch-Packing-peanuts with sauce on it  :rofl: than thought, that might be a little ridiculous.)

 

In my opinion, while this isn't going to burn the carp out of you unless you have a lower tolerance to heat. It Will get used more than something that would, and is as the back of the label says; "Respectably hot"

as well as delicious !

 

I haven't tried 1 of your sauces that I didn't like Scott, they all bring on the Flavor like a Sauce should.

Thanks again




#1160091 STEAK!!

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 08 May 2015 - 12:39 AM

 Ps does everyone one on thp hate eggs? :)

Heck no!

I was  :drooling: drooling over your steak pics, but when I saw those breakfast Tacos...  I needed a sponge strapped to my chin to soak up the drool  :rofl:

 

The Wife can't stand Runny yoke, but I can't get enough of it. :P

Wiped clean off a plate with some tortillas/ toast, or  a English muffin,or on a burger, in a taco, wherever... Fresh eggs are delicious :dance:  




#1159700 Carl's Jr. Is Launching 'Fast-Food's Hottest Burger'

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 07 May 2015 - 08:58 AM

No Carls Jr. here, but there is Hardees (same star logo, nearly identical menu, guessing there the same)

 

I tried this (fully not expecting to be Wowed)

 

It was a $12 (got the combo) Sloppy-mess!

 

I should have known better.  

& how can they even call those things Jalapeno poppers ?

I didn't even want to finish it.

 

 

Conclusion:

Watching the commercial for this, is far better than eating this Burger.
