ants on my plants

26 June 2017 - 08:36 PM

Hey, are ants on my pepper plant leaves a bad sign? I know that ants use aphids for their honeydew but i dont have aphids, i checked very carefully. If its just an ant exploring a new thing that just showed up in its territory all of a sudden then thats fine, but if i need to blast them with something then i def want to do it sooner than later.

Custom hybrid rasberry sauce. Any ideas?

25 June 2017 - 05:24 PM



I have managed to save the strain of black raspberry that the family who owned our property before us paid a shitload of money to have hybridized and tailored to our growing conditions...  this is the first pint I have gotten in years and I want to make a sauce with them... I have tons more to go pick but I want to do something special with the first ones... any good raspberry hot sauce ideas?

What causes this stem problem?

15 June 2017 - 11:06 PM



Had this happen to a few of my young plants this year, its as if something was constricting the stem right at the level where it meets dirt. none of them survived so when I saw it happening with this one I just yanked it out and photographed it (it was a late seed acquisition that I was growing just for kicks). if its just something that happens randomly then oh well, but if its something I can prevent then I would like to do something about it... lost 3 ghost seedlings to this and another 3 or 4 habaneros. 

Forked leaves? WTF?

12 June 2017 - 06:28 PM



so heres one ive never seen before...  is this a genetic mutation or just something that happens occasionally?

its a Jalapeno, about 18 inches tall and still growing, plant looks healthy, I feed it Alaska fish emulsion and lobster/seaweed ferts... occasional doses of calmag as well.  all of a sudden it has 4 leaves that are forked like a snakes tongue.
