Looking good! I have a bunch that need processed right now too.

Glad to see the season turned out so well Rick! I haven't even thought about doing anything with my earlier harvests other than freezing what LB didn't dry.

Cheers guys! I'm definitely in sauce-making mode with the Chinense varieties, and drying my Annuums in the solar dehydrator. I finished a case of tomato-based sauce with Bhuts today that's incredible on pizza if mixed into the tomato sauce on it. I went out to my Mom's for a cookout today and she sent us home with a little over 8 quarts of blueberries from her bushes. Next up is a batch of my blueberry-based "Moose Breath" hot sauce made with Yellow Brains.

We pulled the last of the pole beans this weekend and removed the plants since we had an outbreak of Mexican Bean Beetles, but on the flip side we picked a wheelbarrow full of sweet onions and half a 5 gal pail of Roma-type tomatoes .

I hope everybody had a great Labor Day!543559d43355d746956d4cac2308bc4b.jpg1711b0bdefba85a1386baa0b6466a6d2.jpg0f4cb64f6cb7580296dd4be25f29a7bf.jpg

ROFL! I'd a liked to have been a witness to its reaction to that pod. [emoji48]

The Chinense chiles are really stepping up here now... right on time. [emoji16] here's one day's harvest of MoAs, Douglahs, CARDI Yellow Scorps. There's even a ripe Manzano. The only fly in the ointment is what looks like pepper maggots in the Red Rocotos. 4 pods looked to be ripening and they turned out to be all infested. [emoji34] Hopefully that's all... the rest look OK.

I've got roughly a kilo and a half of pods to process ATM... time to start smoking, drying and canning!

I hope you all are doing well and pulling in great harvests. 2ea7ff23e3d9ffa66b9320b9191a9311.jpg83cba4c3b129b1aa45ace887b191c6dd.jpg

I have this product lying around. https://www.amazon.c...g?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Just starting to research this. Can it be used? At what application rate? Does it require a waiting period before planting to be leached or seasoned? Your glog is maybe not the right venue for all my questions, but thanks anyway.

About the only difference between your charcoal and Scott's is that yours was screened and washed. That's not necessary for making Terra Preta soil. It doesn't require seasoning, it's good to go as an adsorbant material, but you can "charge" it with liquid nutes before or after working it into your soil. I've read that a village in South America does this by quenching the biochar with cow urine when making it. Hydroponic nutes should work here but I'd add some humates to the mix as well. Another benefit of biochar is that it gives soil-dwelling microbes a good home during inclement conditions, so it probably works best with no-till gardening methods. That's why you're working it in with a broadfork, isn't it Scott?

Has the weather started to cool down for you yet Scott? It has here already. We had a week of temperate weather after a hot early to mid August. The next two days are predicted to be in the 90s, and after that should slide into football weather...

Cheers!

They would probably do better outside

Planting in the ground is the largest possible pot. I'd still feed them like crazy though... [emoji6]

Really nice money shot John, looks like you're in the sweet spot now! I notice you didn't mention SB varieties much... have you gone completely over to the dark side? [emoji6]

Another 145 grams for a total of 977 grams... almost a kilo! I don't think I'll see two kilos before it frosts here, but a kilo and a half seems do-able. Not bad for our New England climate. [emoji16]878610b8cdf9d7d5d142153256627a92.jpg

Thanks Rick,
 
I don't think you'll see any pod set here for awhile yet. We're still at 97-102° most everyday :confused:
 
I'm hoping for a few nice pulls in Oct-Dec :rolleyes:
 

I don't see how anyone else here could catch up with your monster plant's production if it gets its second wind, but we march on regardless. [emoji16]

Posted by stickman on 16 August 2018 - 04:47 PM

We had a bit of a heat wave this past week, and a lot of my Chinense chiles experienced a ripening spurt. Picked my first yellow PDN x Bonda yesterday and had half of the pod on an egg 'n cheez sandwich. Nice citrus-y flavor and decent heat... Thanks for passing the seeds on Paul, I think they'll be a fine addition to this year's powder blend. Cheers!

P.S. I went out and took a closer look at the pods after making my initial post, and found a few ripe purple-pheno pods after all. Better and better... [emoji16]066e87c6f5fb2fdbf1b067650bd2df3a.jpg

Really nice MOAs Rick!

Good to see things are in high gear

Cheers Ryan! They're from seeds collected from my "prize-winning" MoA in the "Land of the Giants biggest Bonnet challenge" last year. I don't blame the THP member for lining up a grand prize provider that later welched out, but that's life in the big city I'm afraid. [emoji52]
