Looks like a lot of headspace in those bottles for HFH (should try to keep it at about 1/2", I think), but other than that, sauce looks great! A little bit of sugar or honey can go a long way to round out any rough edges too (maybe a pinch of salt too)
Congrats on your first sauce! Looking forward to seeing what else you come up with
My wife met Danny Cash last summer while she was in a business trip in Denver. He had a booth set up somewhere (can't remember where), and she said he was a really nice guy. She told him I grew peppers and made sauce, and he was asking her to see pictures. I was texting her pictures from my glog last year and sauce labels and stuff. It was pretty funny
She told me he said (about me), "Wow, that dude is REALLY into peppers, huh?"
Thanks for the kind words, encouragement, and generosity guys! That's what makes this place great
Not giving up! If I'm being optimistic about it (very rare for me, lol), I can say that now I don't have to worry about the hassle of babying dozens and dozens of tiny sprouts and worrying about aphids, etc. One less thing to worry about (although I am going to keep the ones that did sprout)
I'm gonna order some plugs, and it'll all be 'good in the hood' come plant out time
Thanks again, guys
What's going on? There no reason for your glog to ever be off page 1
Haha, thanks dude. Here's a reason though:
I've had horrendous germination rates. It's been over a month too. I really think "something" happened to my personal seed stock, because I've had 0% germination with my own seeds. Seeds I've acquired from other people have germinated fine, but I also think it might've had something to do with my seed starting mix. Same stuff I always use (MG Seed Starting mix w/ additional perlite), but I grabbed a bag off a pallet at Home Cheapo that looked like it'd been sitting outside all Winter long.
Still doesn't explain my seeds not sprouting though. Everything was properly dried (air dried on coffee filters), then stored in ziplock bags. Dunno. Honestly, I've got too much shit going on right now to even care, sadly. I'm probably gonna end up ordering some seedlings online this year, and start my seed stock from scratch next year
Apologies to anyone that I gifted/traded seeds with. I feel like an idiot, lol. Hopefully you'll have better results than I did. Really sorry if you're in the same boat I am
I'm not the best person to diagnose plant problems, but if I had to guess, I'd say they got fertilizer burn. I also said in my post that I don't start using that mix until they're in (at least) 1 gallon containers, not 10oz (or whatever) cups. Meaning, the plants are usually a LOT bigger than that before I start using 5:1:1 (more than just a couple of sets of true leaves). That's a fairly hefty amount of ferts for plants still that small.
Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me will chime in, but that's my best guess
I have this one, but it's a few years old (2014-15?). My wife uses the cup attachments daily to make breakfast shakes. We've never had a problem with it. Never had to replace anything. I use the food processor to chop for my ferments, the blender for sauces, and the different size cups/glasses for grinding up dried pods into powder/flakes
