That all makes perfect sense.  I have very little gardening experience and am pretty much totally winging it excepting the guidance of THP. 

 

The suggestion is to go ahead with the deck rail platform as I'd prefer, leaving off the tent to keep the wife happy, right?

Uncle E, your grow's been great to follow and I hope you're getting a good plan together for your outdoor logistics. Looking forward to seeing nature pitch in and do some of the heavy lifting for you.  

 

Thanks!  I still don't know what I'm going to do.  I'd like to hang a sheet of plywood over the edge of the deck rail for a platform, but the wife's not into the white net tent being up there.  I'll probably limb up a couple trees, sit some containers on the ground, plant a couple in the ground, mosquito tent for birds and what bugs I can deter, then chicken wire or something around that for the bunnies.  I still haven't entirely discounted the idea of building a platform to hoist up to the eaves, but I doubt I'll end up doing that.

 

Some will stay next to my chair under the light, just not sure which.  Almost certainly the Freeport Orange SB in the bucket will stay inside.  

 

From way up here atop this page, though, anything seems possible.

My brother told someone its 12 o'clock somewhere and they weren't impressed. Said the song says 5 o'clock somewhere lol. It was probably 8am when he was saying it, he loves beer.

 

I drink beers in the morning if the mood strikes me right.  Anybody who's got a problem with it has got a problem all his own.

I'm only worried how they look insofar as it indicates their health.  All things being equal I would prefer beautiful plants, of course, but I'm interested in producing hot, tasty pods first and foremost.

;)

 

Man, I would murder for garden space like that. 

 

Edit: Well.. I'd maim for it..

Patience is for the dead. 

 

And I have too much to think about. 

 

I appreciate the sentiment nonetheless.

Friday again.

 

How long does it take for pods to ripen?  Some of these have been on here for what seems like a while.

Edit:  Oh. It's only been three weeks.

Nice! 

 

I haven't smoked any meat since my thermometer died..  I should get a new one with the weather warming.

 

Post a couple pics when it's done!

Wow.  Sorry to hear that, DWB.  What does one do, if so inclined? 

 

I'm looking into water softeners this weekend.  Wonder if the hard alkaline water here might be doing us more harm or bother than we realize.

Most of mine are distilled water jugs,
but the few milk jugs got a hot water
and soap rinse out with a cup of soap
solution.

 

 

 
That's what I do, too. I'm fanatical about rinsing away the soap and end up standing there filling and swirling and pouring for ten minutes. 
 
We buy our water in small bottles.  It's only ever milk that comes through here in those gallon jugs.  Thanks!  Didn't occur to me to just buy the damn jugs clean.  And they're.. already filled with water.  In my defense, those are milk jugs.

I have about 2 dozen in my 6x8
greenhouse!


Anybody got any tips for cleaning them out before first use? I'd have a lot more if it wasn't such a pain in the ass to clean out the milk.
