This coming season (2019) will be very exciting as I have purchased 31 types from Texas Hot Peppers and another 10 from a vendor in Arizona. At most I would probably plant is maybe half of them but this really gives me some options and variety for next year.
Seeds Available For Trade
I am a complete amature so will trade what I have if anybody actually wants it. Eventually would love to trade for different flavors and varieties. I love color in the garden as well.
I enjoy growing just about anything in my garden so Mild to Hot is cool for me.
So I got thinking....instead of asking my wife to sew up a bunch of these pots for me I assume it would be the same thing if I built a bunch of smallish type boxes and then just staple the fabric to it. maybe like 18''x18'' or even try some bigger ones as well....would be easier to replace the fabric then to have my wife resow them every couple years or however long they lasted.
I got my seeds from Garth in the mail today. Shipping was great and seeds were well packaged I was very pleased with that. Was also 4-5 freebies as well which was very nice and unexpected. Being new to chillis Garth was very patient and helpful and really made this an easy buy.
5 stars from me!!
Thanks again look forward to the next purchase
Sorry for the bad pic just couldnt find an angle without any glare
One thing I do have alot of is a bunch of big metal buckets left from the previous owner of the property we now have who used to operate a scrap business....some are pretty big and I do have a bunch of plastic ones I collected myself so i am good on that front. I was just wondering if the fabric pots had the air pruning effect that some of the smart pots seem to have.
A large bucket probably wouldn't get as root bound like a smaller pot/bucket might is my guess but I found a place where I think I can get some cheap fabric pots for around .40c CDN for the 3g's and around .65c each cdn for 7g's I believe it is.
My wife is a great seamstress and was actually tinking about the DiY option i spose it would be finding the material cheap enough to make it worth it.
Sadly starting to get ready for our first real snow fall of the year....I honestly cannot believe how miserable the weather has been the past month, it went from +26c one day the next it dropped to +5 and has been hovering around that ever since. It was well below the seasonal norms even for this area as we normally have longer winters then the rest of the province. 10-15cm TWC is calling for but local radio says 15-25cm...guess we should prep for the worst.
Thanks for the comments and snide remarks. I would absolutely love to share some sauce with y'all. My current 3 sauces are all basically the same exact thing but in different variations. The Original is a very hot sauce. You may not like vinegar forward sauces. Fine. This sauce is not such a sauce. Sure it's tangy. But the mixture of peppers offer a fairly bold flavor combination. The Green-Go is the same exact sauce except all the peppers are immature, the Jalepeno to super hot pepper ratio is more and the final product gets more honey.
The Vinegar is magnificent and the main reason why water would not work in my technique. All the leftover vinegar that the peppers were soaking in gets strained. Then it too is made into a sauce. It is phenomenal. I am not ignorant, nor arrogant about what I'm doing. The sauces are delicious. I've had my fair share of hot sauce. And the peppers I'm growing are extraordinary. In one season I'll get a hundred pounds of peppers off of just one plant, maybe more. I haven't tested the limits yet. When I say season, I mean year. As we have fairly tropical weather in Florida all year.
Anyway, it's good to be here. I never intended on ruffling feathers. If anyone wants to try some of the sauce, PM me. Thanks again.
Good morning Captain Caliente
I do not think it was the OP where it all went wrong....you gave an opinion and received some back which is normal on any discussion board. I think it kinda went bad when the "Wizard" and "I am better then you " type stuff bomb was dropped. To me it seemed alittle arrogant and maybe this was not your intention bad sadly it happened. I believe everyone that is here can learn something no matter the expertise they have but a me against the world attitude is a loss for all.
Take it all in..have an opinion but be prepared for others in return. Anyways enjoy your day good sir.
I made 2 small hoop houses last year very similar to that....For one I took some12-16 inch rebar and drove it into the ground...went and bought some PVC pipe (think its 1 inch or so)and just bent the pvc over the garden bed from one stake to the other. For the second I had one 8ft piece of PVC left so I cut it into 8 inch pieces and drive them into the ground...I I cut downsome Tag Elder Saplings long enough to bend over the garden bed and just stuck each end into the opposing hole of the pvc. The second truely is a poor mans version but more then did the job and is still nice and strong this year. I will pull the plastic over it at nights starting in the next week or 2 as its already dipping into single digits at night here.
I remember when this system first came out, my brother and I rented it several times from a local video store. Besides the really high end Neo Geo and the short lived Atari Jaguar I am not sure there was anything else like it out there at the time. Need for Speed and Road rash were Favs of mine as both the graphics and music used truely was immersive. Jealous you got one broken or not. :hot:Stuff!!
Still gives me the shivers when I see that last scene
One thing I did not think of that my wife brought to my attention last night was that on the drive home I had also used some Deep Cold (Icy Hot) as my neck and shoulders were killing me. I never did wash off any residue before jumping into the peppers. Anyways she thought maybe this also contributed and made the reaction that much more worse then it had to be. Really it doesnt much matter and it does make me feel much better about it knowing most have gone through some sort of similar issue.
It's weird. When I've been cutting peppers without gloves, the burning in my fingers only starts after I've washed with soap.
However, if I don't wash my hands with soap, there's other parts of my anatomy that will begin burning immediately when touched with unwashed hands.
See I was abit confused by this cause I did do abit of reading before hand and one place of reference mentioned to wash thorough with soap and water and it would be fine...after I was in agony and looking for some sort of remedy several pages mentioned that water was a bad idea. Think what made is worse was I really washed my hands good front and back..spreading the oils all over sadly...
I would certainly agree with the above post about tolerence though..maybe not so much to the eye for me mind you
