Looks like mites

This. Broad mites more likely than spider mites, which make the little webs. Azamax works well.

Unfortunately the deformed leaves will never heal but after a few treatments new growth should normalize.

We didnt use a coffee grinder, we used an open disk grinder. The dust was airborne and you know the rest. I will ask my wife if I can use her grinder. Btw, how do you get the burn out of the grinder before using it for something else?

Dry rice works good

Start indoors around January 1 and you should be able to grow anything.

Plant out a couple weeks after last frost (maybe late April/early May in your area?) with a healthy plant and good root system.

We have Canadian growers who grow superhots fine up in the Great Whitw North.
