Does anyone else feel invested emotionally in Trent's crops or is it just me?

I am here along with you.

And, Lamb's Quarters!  I haven't a clue what to do with them, but when I wash them in my salad spinner, I keep getting this sandy debris on the inside of the bowl.  What gives?  Anyone?

There are many Nepalese refugees who garden here, and they forage for it, making a curry with it.  Curry isn't my thing, so maybe I'll just saute them with some garlic and red pepper flakes?  If I ever get them clean, that is.    :rolleyes:


I am from India and I love Lamb's Quarters curry. They grow everywhere. We make dal out of it.

Also, shout out to other pepperheads who stepped in selflessly by sending their seeds to Trent when required.

Though I am new here, I am already loving the brotherhood in this community.

Just completed this till the end... phew…

What an intriguing and inspiring read it has been...


I should hand it to you Trent. You are the most adventurous soul that I know (did not meet and want to meet someday) in my life.

I came here for pepper farming lessons but stayed for some important life Gyan like



  • "Never stop learning."
  • "Construction things don't happen overnight! Unless you're using slave labor or work for the state road departments."
  •  “operations manual for plants can be more complex than for women”
  • “In some regards we are like monkeys operating a microwave. A monkey can push buttons on a microwave. He can open the door. He can even get food out of the refrigerator and put food in the microwave. But he's never going to reliably cook his own dinner. There's tools and phenomenon in this world that are like that microwave, and we are like the monkey”.
  • “I get more satisfaction out of a slab of concrete that I poured than any computer program I ever wrote (and that's a LOT of code over the years). Because I know in 150 years someone will walk on that slab of concrete. But no one will even remember any of those programs I wrote, or servers I've built.”


  • "Best way to keep a racoon and his family off your property is to feed them 2 year old Butch T's"
  • “teach the dogs to quit chewing on things (chair legs, work boots, etc) by rubbing ultrahots on them.”


Hats off to your persistence and the never give up attitude Trent. I would have given up much before if I was in your shoes.


Coming from a farming family ( back in India), I can see why I did connect with this glog at this level. Your work ethic and relentlessness reminds me of my Dad. Next time he is here in states, I will show him your glog and I am sure he will be happy with your efforts.


Will keep watching this space.

Moving on to next Glog..

New to this forum and new to pepper growing. Going through all the threads.. and this is an awesome idea. Loved how everyone participated.

Hopefully I will be old enough(4 months) by the time next train starts. If not, I can wait for a year more.. not a problem.


Thanks for organizing this Jeff.

Good Morning. Happy to say hello to you all. I am a new pepperhead. I am growing habaneros, ghost peppers and bell peppers starting this year.

I am here to learn new stuff about pepper growing.
