One plant near my outside AC unit is hit with heavy air flow most of the summer. Oddly anything i plant near it grows like mad even compared to a plant 2 feet further away.

Try to buy the ones that are made with sun-dried peppers, which will be labeled as 태양초 on the package.








translates into "sun" or "sun dried"

Barbers 1833 Vintage Cheddar 20 month


Their website says 24 but this package says 20. Well, the lack of 4 months does not seems to hurt this cheddar. It is on point for a rindless block cheddar. Just sharp enough to really satisfy but not so much it hides the more subtle flavors. Slightly nutty with a sweetness that is almost toffee like or caramel. Very nice crumbly texture and those wonderful calcium crystals are not in short supply.


I gave $6 for 8oz block at Fresh Thyme Market ...Excellent English cheddar even at fair amount more. It gives up very little to the $20+\lb competition other than a rind.

Added a Bonnie Cajun Belle to the list. Went ahead and planted it in one of the Ecoscraps potting mix buckets. Its a bit early but it was outside at HomeDepot so what the hell. The little guy already had some flowers forming.

In every single video ive seen of the "kimchi festivals" they used sun dried powder. Ive never seen fresh gochu used other than being fermented green alone.


Im sure you could but the sun drying is important.
