Good work Troy!
 
That Vodka should have a nice kick ;)
 
So being you're in the 5a zone, I want to share an over wintering technique. It comes from a most excellent grower. I don't use it here because it's so warm I never put my plants "to sleep" during the winter.
 
Here's his method:
 
 
 
Just some food for thought ;)

Thanks for the tip, good sir! I sprayed them down with some store bought stuff 2 or 3 times over the course of a week with a pump sprayer, then repotted them and sprayed them down again and went over each plant by hand before I brought them in.

That tip you shared is certainly more thorough though. I'll likely go that route next season.

Still, I have found a couple aphids inside. I check the plants every couple days and smush any I find. Hopefully I got or can get them all. My main fear is them hanging around til my seedlings get planted in January and then attacking my seedlings.

Here they are hanging out in their winter home in the unfinished room of my basement. One window that gets good south southwest sunlight. They actually have a bunch of new growth already, so I know they are going to do well if I can keep the aphids away.

The only ones that I don't think are going to make it are my two Blue Christmas plants. Both dropped all their leaves, I dont think they tolerated the cold like the others did.

Hey guys, I made some hot sauce for the first time. I made a mash following Khang Starr's directions on YouTube and let it ferment for 7 days, then added a small amount of Apple cider vinegar, did the final blending. It turned out well for my first try. A bit strong on the garlic, even though I didn't use as much as he did, but I still like it. Next I'd like to make a sweeter sauce with a milder heat.

I also made some spicy vodka for Bloody Mary's. Should be awesome!

One of the Purple Naga Viper plants I gave to my Uncle has pods that ripen to brown. So purple plant with brown pods... Chocolate Purple Naga Viper, lol keeping seeds from these 2 pods I snagged from the plant when I was at his house this week. 7cbe29e10d8a07681887d545230337a4.jpg

Just curious, are you using a phone camera or a real camera for your pics?
