"Chalstan." Learn to pronounce it!  ;)  Sometimes they drop the "t." But then you know that! Be fun to make a trip to see you in that sandy soil or come up here with amended and amended clay!! Peace! Sweetie!  

 

Here are some pics of new greenhouse and "the tent" with peppers and maters and zinnias and . . . coreopsis and echinacea and shasta daisy, dianthus, etc and etc. Oh some hollyhock and poppies. And yeah, hard to get all of that in a 10 x 10 space and looking forward to this greenhouse!! We're skinning it today. Hopefully. My bro is wiring the electric; we trenched in water from house, both in pic after this

Wow! Annie!!! I don't get on as much as I should...great to see you are up and running! Where you at NC? I think I'm 'bout to be your neighbor...

 

"SHANE! COME BACK, SHANE!" (Killer Batman ep from late 1960's that ends with parody of that old western with kid yelling for bad guy named "Shame." "Shame! Come back . . ." Ingenious stuff, that.)

 

Where ya gittin' moved to? 

 

Shane, if you're remaining in the military, I find it difficult to believe that you'll wind up in Asheville, man.  ;) (Of course, I'm not in Asheville, either but I have lived there and I sell lots of peppers there, but wow, pacifist stoners fer real . . .  :P )

 

So would you like to tell me, neighbor, where ya gonna be my neighbor, would you be mine? Would you be mine? ♫♫ ♪♫

 

Much peace & etc sweet man: where will y'all be living?

Annie

I'm sure Ramon's email is getting flooded with all this banter, if he still uses the same addie.

 

Annie, 21 months until I retire, I start the greenhouse next late fall. Just a 12x12 with a swamp cooler and temp controlled ventilation for the warmer days. Gonna build it from scratch, I know what I want and how to do it. Those kits cost way too much, and can't handle the winds we get. I can't wait ;)

 

Hiya Scottie!!

 

Yes!! Greenhouse is groovy. Now should ya live in this climate, talk your wife into 6 4 x 8 foot growstands (on hardwoods--150 yr old hardwoods, ahem), and save money by germ indoors, under lights already heated by office, dining room, extra upstairs bedroom uh . . . and then stick them out in ghouse!! We got snow coming in and Funky Reaper  :dance:  (goes commercial) got potted up last night and is in new shoes in warmth, BUT calling for snow Mon morning.  :rolleyes: 

 

Swamp cooler could double for ya as a "greens" holder, "cool room," since y'all are positively profligate in the lettuce and kale seed ya'll throw around!!!  ;)  Riiiiight . . . Much peace, my brother!

 

Up for peaceful coffee and to order more 1020 trays and stuff--the word is always "more" on a greenhouse. Hopefully, "more" $ happens as well. Love ya, guy!---Annie

lol We need Ramon to come online so he can distract and get those tunes out of your head. Man, I hate it when that happens lol

 

Man, we just need "mi hermanito" Ramon back! I still grow that JA Red Hab. Doing the "Master Gardener" thing and yesterday's class, some fool students started to plant plain ole habs. Ya know the orange things taste like a hot rusted door knob? (Can overwinter lots there with many greenhouses and high tunnels.) I had a "conniption fit!" Stopped them; came and got JA Red Hab seed and couldn't stand myself, some MOA out of seed-store, for them to plant. I explained the story behind the seed that Ramon's  grandparents and parents had taken the seed with them when they fled (when Castro took Cuba in '59). Sadly, most of my students had no clue about Castro and '59. Jesus God, education s*ks in the States. Whew!

 

WE WANT RAMON!  :dance:

 

Annie, I wasn't sure which post to quote to get your attention, lol. We've never "spoken" to each other or had any interaction here, but I just wanted to let you know that a lot of your older sauce making and fermenting posts really inspired me to start making my own, a while ago, especially when I was just a lurker at THP. Great to see you posting again! Hoping you resurrect those old threads and show us all what you've got going on. Lots of great info/recipes in there! :cheers:

(Sorry for the quick hijack ;) )

 

Aww! Mike, glad my screw-ups and fails and some final persistent successes could be helpful!! We have a greenhouse now, and more land, doing single stem tomato grafted heirloom toms--grafting toms is a PIA but worth it and several, like Amish paste make a KILLER smoked Reaper with Douglah, Jamie's "Not Red Bhutlah" and lots of Tabasco for that ferment. If you go back to my meat or red meat ferments, I use a lot of paste tomato in the processing of hat particular sauce to balance or give it a middle note. Am gonna try to post more stuff because I miss you guys. Thanks, hon! You have a great day now!--Annie

Annie, I'm with you on that! We can send a rogue extraction team to hijack him and bring him to THP central. We will leave no stone un-turned :) :) :)
 

 

Yeah, man 'cause stones make our chili roots run crooked. Yah.

 

He's still out there, He popped into my glog last year to say hey. ;)

 

Cool, Scotty! I see your grow or the beginning page of it, is filled with lots of "tasty" as much as  :mouthonfire: . I'm selling lots of ultra plants and ultra pods at big farmers market here since we moved and greenhouse pad finally finished last weekend (rain and freeze-thaw: ugh)--everybody likes anything with the Reaper "name" in it. Or how's this: "Ghost." WTH! I mean how many versions of "Ghost" but now that Pop Eyes has it . . . smh.

 

How have you been??? Want to me to fly you up to help erect a greenhouse? NC pulled pork (Eastern style) and all the beer you want on me.  :P I miss you, sweetie. 

 

Maybe you'll find Silver_Surfer as well.

 

Allen, Allen Allen. No lo se! Man, that dude's a legend.

 

 

Oh man, those were the days for sure!

 

Lourens, now I can't get that song that went across the world in a gazillion languages out of my head. "We'd fight and never lose/when Ramon was here oh yes those were the days!" Or to the young guns on here who I love dearly: "And I don wanna be learned and I don wanna be tamed."--Ramone ON.  :dance:

Lourens, let's hire a PI--Pepper Investigator. Also, it's been time: we can report him as a missing and missed chili head.

That is a lot of varieties indeed, Do you by chance get to pick? or is it at random?

 

You choose for this coming Monday mailout and I'll tell you what I have ripe. For example--many unripe Sugar Rush Peach on vines but a LOT of people wanted those last week for this past Monday mailout, so have to wait a week for them to blush ripe again. Low on Orange Thai. One guy has already paid and ordered all the "other peach" I have for next mailout that will pick on Sunday. I got plenty heat and plenty savory to seasoning. "Something for everyone!"  ;)

 

You pick some and we'll do it! 

 

Peace,

Annie

Gorgeous pods and amazing crosses I never knew existed! You've got some terrific stuff, Annie! Your Tab x BBG7 has proven to be a winner! Very nice!

 

 Thanks, Adam! Yeah, that TAB x BG7 is finally stable (I think) for me. At least for 2 years has thrown correct pheno. (One never likes to feel too confident about pepper crosses, ya know?  ;) ) Also, as I was talking with Jason G., it's almost hard to take much credit when BG7 is involved--they're just so er loose--I mean, promiscuous! "Curious?" But yeah going from flower to flower and isoing them--that's some work--but now that Bhut Orange Copenhagen x BG7 is a solid trip. REAL GOOD tasting pepper.  :party: Try to get it to do right again next year. So how is Bhut-World, hon? Love your gnarlies!! Enjoying that Naga E and varieties of Shabu Shabu. (In bhut fam)

 

Thanks for lookin and much peace to you, Adam!

Here you go, Annie!

 

(uploaded your pics to a different host / aligned some of them that were sideways)– Photobucket no longer allows third party hosting of images without paying their extortion/ransom fee… they essentially caused millions of images to be broken/unseeable overnight with their new policy a few months ago. (some good info for alternatives https://www.ghacks.n...or-third-party/) Beautiful pods! 

 

 

Joel, in "Upper SC"  ;) (makes ya almoss a "Yankee," man  :rolleyes: ) THANK YOU, SWEETNESS! Thank you so much. Have always hated PB and now can forgo them. Thank you and thank you!--Annie
