Cloning a Hot Sauce Recipe

19 July 2018 - 12:28 PM

So I realize that there are a million ways that this recipe could go down but I'm looking for suggestions on a good starting point for trying to recreate it. Doesn't need to be exact cuz I probably plan on substituting the habs for something else anyways but for the sake of keeping it as simple as possible, lets assume im using habs. Unfortunately I'll probably end up using canned peaches cuz all the fresh ones around here suck and have no flavor but everything else I'll try to source fresh. Any suggestions are appreciated. Especially if you've had this sauce and know the flavor profile. It's "Tears Of The Sun" by High River Sauces. Thanks!

Edit: If it's easier for you to list in volume measurements, then lets say for a 1 gallon batch. Percentages are welcome though.

Supplementing Nitrogen Rich Soil

14 July 2018 - 01:34 PM

Well, so far it's looking like it's going to be a great year for peppers. Plants are exploding with new healthy growth but very little production so far. About half my plants are chinense so I'm not too worried about it but one thing is pretty clear. Based on the the dark green foliage and vigorous growth of everything (peppers and others), I think my soil is nitrogen heavy. The delayed production could also be due to a heat wave we experienced but there hasn't really been any appreciable blossom drop or anything and I am running shade cloth to help them deal with the heat a little better but for the sake of argument, lets assume that my soil is nitrogen heavy and lacking in other nutrients. What would you use to supplement? Is this a time when a bloom formula would be beneficial? I know some folks think bloom formulas are a waste and all you need is a well rounded npk nutrient but I clearly don't need any extra nitrogen so is a bloom formula warranted in this case? Liquid nutes are a total pain in the ass based on the size of my garden so I was hoping to use a granular nutrient that I could just spread around and water in (was thinking the organic jobes tomato and veggie) but again, not really wanting any more nitrogen. I should add that all my plants are in ground and I didn't have a soil analysis done. I put a thin layer of compost early on, worm casting in each transplant hole and thats it so far. Thoughts?

Rats eating my corn

06 July 2018 - 11:46 AM

The rats that live in my neighbors trees have decided to start eating my corn. Anyone have any suggestions on controlling them and keep them from getting into my garden? Came across a couple ears of corn totally stripped this morning. I'm not opposed to using poison but I have 3 dogs and have to be very careful. I've killed a few with raw bacon on snap traps but that doesnt really wipe them out. I'm afraid that now they've developed a taste for the corn, they could wipe out the whole crop in no time. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Anyone wanna do a non-pepper growdown? Looking for suggestions on what varieties people might think will be fun for next year. I'm willing to host and provide seed to anyone interested. Thoughts?
