Plants are looking great there. My Kumatos are finally making maters. Last night ,we finally got some rain up here ,in the Thumb. Seems like the rain has been going either north or south of us.

My inlaws get a ton of those Japanese beetles on their raspberry, blackberry and cherry trees. My father in law put up some traps that use pheromones as an attraction bait upwind of the plants. He then dumps boiling water on the bugs that are caught in the traps.

How’s the new fertilizer working for you? Do you use it on your whole garden? Same rate for everything?

Squash already? Wow. On our work garden, we don’t have blooms yet, but on my inlaws garden they had blooms a week ago. But I have cayennes producing [emoji16].

With the foresight to not put 10 Gallons of stuff in a Five Gallon bucket.

I hear you about stakes being expensive. I was going to buy some dowels from HD, but I bought fertilizer instead. Then My plan was to use some scrap conduit from work,IMG_0638.JPG but I ended up using some old arrows that I didn’t use anymore.

That sucks about the stem rot disease. Does the organic growing council ( not sure of the proper name)help you with suggestions to combat this disease? And other disease and pest problems?

I’ll have to try your recipes this year. I made pizza sauce and ketchup , both Mrs Wages packages with mine last year. Funny thing is I adjusted the ketchup recipe some by adding less sugar then what the package called for and it tasted more like tomato soup than ketchup. [emoji16]

#1557851 Sorry Guys Your Favorite Hot Sauce is Bad!!!

 Different but developed at the same place and for the same reasons (Nematode resistance.)   The Carolina Cayenne is a bit hotter than the Charleston Hot.

I found out about the Carolina Cayenne after I had planted my garden this year [emoji20] It’s sounds like it’s a good one. Next year it’s going in. [emoji16]

I'm older maybe than a few here (but not over the hill yet) but still old enough to remember when younger, that Tabasco was the "only" hot sauce on the store shelves. As a kid, "Tabasco" was synonymous with "hot sauce." That is to say that when you said "hot sauce" it was assumed to be Tabasco brand. I eat it, have many bottles, but certainly not my favorite.
 
I am currently growing a Cayenne hybrid - developed locally at the Clemson experimental station some years back called the "Charleston Hot." A much hotter version of typical Cayenne. If all lines up right, there might be a new Warrant Man product in the fall. Time (and luck) will tell...
 
I as, THP do enjoy Cayenne.
 
Not sure on the heat level just yet, nor the exact recipe, I've some thoughts but will experiment...
 
"Should" it come to fruition, there will need to be a name.....  cart before the horse, but suggestions welcomed...

Charleston Hot ? Is that pepper the same as the Carolina Cayenne?

That's exactly what I would've done. Silly question: were the jals ripe red or green?

Ripe red with corking.
I didn’t save any seeds before I froze them. Sometimes I just don’t think. [emoji53]

That's very interesting. Did you dry the seeds after the freezer, or try and germinate them without drying? I'm just wondering which is the correct procedure. I have some old frozen pods that I'd like to try seeds from.

The pods were frozen fresh whole. I first thawed them out ,cut them in half,then let them dry out ,picked the seeds out and tried starting them using the damp paper towel in a ziplock bag.
