Saving Tomato Seeds

12 September 2018 - 07:27 PM

I didn’t want to hijack another thread about saving Pepper seeds.
What is everybody’s preferred way to save tomato seeds. I’ve only saved them on a paper towel and had good germination rates that way. I recently heard about fermenting tomato seeds, can anyone walk us through that technique?

Just got a food mill

08 September 2018 - 01:34 AM

I have about a hundred questions on using my new toy. For best performance , does a fermented sauce need to be cooked first before running it through the food mill? How does a food mill compare to a blender for puréeing raw ingredients?
Are there any good food mill tutorials out there?

Preferred time to pick

Is there a time of the day when peppers have the best flavor?
Are peppers better tasting when picked in the morning compared to picked in the afternoon or evening?

Scotch Bonnets?

30 July 2018 - 07:57 AM

These plants came in a 4 cell tray from a nursery. The tag says Scotch Bonnets. One of the cells had 2 plants growing in it, I left them together when I planted them.
The first picture has SB on the left and on the right is the mystery pepper. Attached File  IMG_0740.JPG   646.39KB   12 downloads
Picture 2 is another plant from the same tray. Attached File  IMG_0743.JPG   619.44KB   12 downloads
Please help ID the mystery peppers.

Tale of two bonnets

03 July 2018 - 04:06 PM

Back in May I purchased a four pack tray of red scotch bonnets. I planted 2 in my raised beds at home and 2 in containers at work. The 2 at home are putting out blooms that are white with purple edges. The 2 at work are putting out plain white flowers. So my question is has anybody had a similar experience? Does soil composition and or nutrients play a big part in flower color?
