Cool tool! I'd love one of those. You might just have inspired me to order one! By the way, 'hori-hori' is the sound of digging in Japanese. It's an onomatopoeia, like 'meow' or 'bang'.

So why do they call it "banging"? The sound of the headboard hitting the wall perhaps..? lol


#1562605 What peppers are these?

Posted by Edmick on Today, 01:31 PM

They don't appear to have the classic chinense leaf shape like the varieties you listed usually do. Once they start to bloom, that may help narrow it down a little bit but even then you're probably gonna have to wait til they set pods to be totally certain.

What else did you try? Anything good worth noting?


#1562361 Sandwich of the Month

Posted by Edmick on Yesterday, 03:44 PM

Been reading through the archives of this thread, and besides all the amazing sandwiches posted by the wonderful members here, something dawned on me.. TB has become weirder and weirder by the year.. I mean that in the most kind hearted way too of course. Lol

I've got one of those. It's an awesome garden tool. Plus it's fun running around the yard looking like a fearsome Klingon!

My thoughts exactly. I figure, during the zombie apocalypse I'll be able to tend to my garden and defend myself against the walking dead at the same time. Assuming of course that they breach my other defenses first.. Lol

Got a new gardening toy yesterday. A hori hori gardening knife. Seems to be pretty heavy duty. Heavy stainless steel blade and hardwood handle. Came with a pretty nice leather sheath too. Only $20 on amazon and the quality seems like something that could last a lifetime.

#1562030 Hardening Off Question

Posted by Edmick on 22 June 2018 - 01:58 PM

Should always harden them off or transition them slowly to reduce both sun scald and/or shock. With you being in canada, I imagine your growing season is not very long so you probably can't afford to set your grow back by throwing them into shock.


#1562016 Exotics

Posted by Edmick on 22 June 2018 - 12:51 PM

Not sure if you would consider this an exotic but I think it's an interesting variety. I'm growing these tigger melons this year. Not my photo but this is what it looks like.

#1561995 What is this thing?

Posted by Edmick on 22 June 2018 - 10:57 AM

Looks like tomatillo

Edit: The blossom doesn't look right though so maybe not..

This is steve from high river sauces and that sauce in his left hand is one of my favorites. Tears of the sun. Get the VIP pass and you'll get a cool ass shirt and a bottle of sauce.

#1561637 Sorry

Even as a seed scammer he's not half as bad as I was at 16 haha.

True facts. I wasn't scamming seeds, I was just getting out of juvie and getting my first tattoo at that age. Haha


#1561633 Sorry

The boss man has spoken but please keep in mind that this is a somewhat close knit little community of people that like having somewhere to go where they can trust people and not have to worry about who they "do business" with. There are not too many places like this on the interweb so lets please just try to keep the integrity of this place intact.


#1561522 Super Hots, Germination, and Heat

Posted by Edmick on 20 June 2018 - 04:50 PM

I will say this, I started well over a thousand pepper plants this year for my business and buying enough heat mats for that amount of trays was just not possible financially so I heated my entire grow room and even added a humidifier to mimic it as best I could and still had much slower germination than the ones I had in an actual heated propagation dome. The difference was night and day. What took a few days in the dome, took up to a couple weeks on some of the same varieties.
