#1492758 [Sep 18] What are you working on this week?

Posted by MikeUSMC on Today, 09:38 AM

if I can figure out why my pics post sideways lol

If you're posting them from your phone, cropping the pics in your camera roll (even just the tiniest little bit) works

BLT's are great, especially in the summertime. They're like a classic American burger with a bunch of toppings.....minus the burger :mope:

#1492750 2018 Changes and Additions

Posted by MikeUSMC on Today, 08:58 AM

On the fence about building a big raised bed (or a few small ones), or to continue growing in buckets. Also getting a lot of "nots" this year. So I'll be doing a lot of isolating next year

Couldn't have said it better myself, Sim ;) Nice heat, and a wonderful sweet, fruity flavor. Very nice pods( I'm glad I grew it this year. Thanks again for the seeds, bud!

Posted by MikeUSMC on 18 September 2017 - 02:45 PM

Yes, I do, but this is the first year I ever grew them. If you scroll up a few posts to the last group shot of my plants, 5 buckets furthest to the right are all tomatoes

#1492068 MikeUSMC 2017 Grow

Thanks, guys!

Mike, those numex twilight are great looking looking peppers

Yeah, Blitz, they're gorgeous plants. I grow one out front every year. I've got one out back in a bucket too, that I plan on digging up in a few weeks to turn into a Bonchi ;)

Very nice Mike ;)  Those Marines are ready for inspection!


I agree the weather had to cause the slower season. I visit Long Island every summer, LB and I grew up there, this year the first week of August. The weather was WAY cooler than we've had on a trip. A good 10-12 degrees cooler on average and one day was a high of 69°!

Yeah, the weather's been crazy here all year. We had a few days in late June with highs of 46*. Lately we're either in the 60's or 80's during the day, and in the 50's at night.

It's all over the place. Mark Twain once said, "If you don't like the weather in New England.......wait 5 minutes." :)

Put it this way: my wife was begging me to put the heat on the other night (she was vehemently denied ;) ), and I have the central AC on today, haha

#1492060 Ph of non vinegar sauce is 3.5, kinda blows me away

Posted by MikeUSMC on 17 September 2017 - 02:31 PM

If the pH is 3.5, you don't need the vinegar, unless you want to add it for flavor/consistency. If you're bottling your sauces up though, I HIGHLY recommend cooking it to kill all the LB. If you don't, it'll keep to fermenting (releasing more CO2) and continue to build up pressure, and you'll wind up with a bunch of little time bombs hanging around, waiting to explode ;)
