Pop some corn,spray with Hazel nut cooking spray,add the ground pepper of choice.

An added addition is add grated cheese-parmison romono blend to it.

Butter or pork/bacon fat adds to the flavor.

I need Help with my grow

Due to stuff going on,I'd like to find out if anyone would be interested in working something out that would give them starts in trade for some help taking care of my garden.

This could include access to Some of my Personal stash (5000+species,Varieties and crosses of seeds).


Green Arrow Closed up the street.


Homey Depote is a bus ride away - don't know if I can Granny cart bags of stuff on the bus.


I am on a limited Budget,Barter would be best,I'd pay for anything I need to buy.

Count on smoked stuff,powders or rubs as part of the barter.

Beer-fountain of youth

11 March 2016 - 03:37 AM


From our March 2006 newsletter: "A new study from Czech doctors indicates that moderate beer consumption slows aging and reduces the likelihood of heart attacks. The study was paid for by a group of major Czech breweries. A Czech beer was used for the study, but the brewers requested doctors not disclose the name. Jaroslav Racek, head of a research team in Pilsen, told the daily Plzensky denik the doctors found the men's levels of dangerous blood lipids were lower by the end of the study. He said the amount of beneficial cholesterol in the men's blood was increased, the beer improved their organism's antioxidant protection and reduced the amount of free radicals that can damage cells and are believed to accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and age-related diseases."



Whoo Hooo!

Moderate Consumption means What?

I'll drink to that. LOL

buying seeds or starts in general these days

19 May 2015 - 08:12 PM

I see MOST of the super Hots these days from Nurseries as being not even Chinense lately.

A few are crosses , not even close to being supers,they grow the hot end of Habanero at best.

A LOT aren't even Chinense.


Too much $ per seed or plant for supers these days I think.

Unknown  sources are used by Nurseries these days.


They sell the starts to nurseries,until the plant buds up and pods out,it's too late to return the plant.


I used to get whatever starts from a local nursery 5 years + ago with only a very few not being what I thought I purchased.

NOW I pay for stuff that isn't even what the label says.

NOW I get 1 out of 5 plants that are even close to what I thought I purchased.

Started a few years back with Bhuts,

Most stuff was really Fatalii peppers.

Jalapeno eaters did think they were super hot...

Now I get Cayenne type,upturned poded plants as almost any super.

EVEN the stuff sold as a thai type pepper (this year are Bells).


Trades are slightly better,crosses of supers that are almost in the super catagory or at least most times hotter than habs.


A lot of seed vendors I THINK found out that selling unstable crosses,sold as such get as much $ as any super.

They get no complaints-they sell it as a cross/unstable.

That is cool.They promised nothing.

But a TON of the varieties that used to be fairly common are either old seeds (the vendors don't grow it anymore) or they just aren't easy to find anymore.

I purchased several varieties THIS year from vendors that are crap seeds.

Most I think are old but moat are immature seeds.

Yellow,green,purple ,brown or whatever is picked at that color,though RED is probably the true ripe color.


My hands don't work right these days.

If you want me to answer your reply,I'm not ignoring you.I just can't type that day.

Also it is just what I think.

Not ragging on ALL vendors.

Just commenting on the times.
