Ya know, dont bring up sore subjects! Ive done Peru and found some awesome chiles there! But....my mind wasnt on WILDS. Not a wasted trip but definitely some missed opportunities! I did hikes that I walked right past plenty of UNKNOWN capsicum. Trust me. Might even have photos. Will have to dig through archives.


Don't kick yourself over it brother, there will be more opportunities to come.

Well Paul I no longer live in Clovis, I now live in Tulare due to some unforseen issues in my life. (Divorce) I currently have some plants from last years grow that I purchased from Jim Duffy as plugs. Still looking to move into a place that has some kind of land so I can do what I enjoy the most which is grow a garden and sit back and watch the sunset besides fishing and hunting of course.

Well folks its been forever since my last post on this wanna be glog. A year has passed and some much has happened since then, most of my plants I have now are from Jim Duffy. To start things off right this time around I have been visiting the local hydro shop and acquiring nutrients and bags of FoxFarm oceans forest soil. Loving that soil by the way, to top it off there is some Azomite and Mykos mixed into each pot at transplanting.









These roots are getting a nice cover of mykos20170705_174036_zpsxk8zy0ws.jpg


As you can see on the roots the mykos are doing their job...
