Freezing some sofrito sounds like a good way to use the harvest Giancarlo. [emoji106] It's a good time of year for sports... Harder to over-heat. [emoji6]
Whoa Rick, cold is already serious on your place!
Thanks, all fine here!
I gave away some peppers, with other i blended with usual, exceeding, part of garlic and put on freezer. Fine until now!
I am not cooking at the moment, i'm more into sports lately.
Cool that you were able to save your final harvest Stefan. I hope you got enough heat put away for the winter too. ☺
Sounds like you've been busy! You will have enough to get through the winter We've had 1 night of frost last week and it killed off all my plants... guess the forecasts were wrong and it was much colder. Anyway, the pods were not frozen so just had to pick and clear out
Cheers Paul! Glad you got some more color before the fat lady sang. I hear ya 'bout low-angle sun and cloudy days... We're getting a lot of that atm, and rain too, which is great for the garlic I planted last week. The digging then was so easy that I was thinking maybe the ever-present Voles had dug tunnels in the raised bed but it was just that the sandy soil was so dry. I spread a bale of straw on the bed to provide insulation and hold moisture. That and the "bulb-tone" fertilizer I added ought to help the cloves get a good start before the ground freezes. My soil samples are at the lab right now, and I'll know what amendments to add in the spring after I get the results back later in the week.
Hey, Rick. Your season finished off in fine style, my friend!
Your grow log reads like a food blog - very entertaining and
informative The sauce production just blew me away. That's
a ton of effort and love there, buddy... You set the bar too high for
a piker like me!
Our season wound down slowly this year. The temps were okay
wrt freezing, but the sun is so low and the weather damp so it
didn't help a whole lot in the final analysis. It did allow some F5
crosses and a few Aji LD to ripen up. The best performers were
the JA Red Habaneros (!) and Yellow Scorpions, followed by the
F5 cross. The Aji LD, of course, produced a ton for a so-so plant.
I think I'm really limiting my grow next season. We are going on a
trip in the Spring, and I don't want to have worry about the garden.
I will start some F6 crosses that my neighbor will babysit while we're
gone, maybe 4-6 to plant out when we return home. For the 2019
season, I'm thinking only 4-6 varieties, with the above-mentioned and a
chocolate habanero or something similar. Maybe 2-4 plants of each.
I'll just have to be satisfied with getting my grow thrills from your grow
log next season. Enjoy the slide into winter, Rick and congrats on a
really superb season!
BTW interested in some F6 seeds of Tristen's cross?
Today's projects are yard cleanup, washing the windows to maximize solar gain and pressing out the mash to make fire cider. The pressing's done... I got two half-gallon growlers to see us through the winter. My Wife has a head cold so the timing is pretty good... [emoji3]
The seeds sound interesting, thanks for the offer. What did Tristan come up with?
Have a good rest-of-the-weekend all!
