I had to come here and attest that poy's Peach Surprise and White Lightning are very good!  However, that White Lightning is a fireball!  I sampled that one first... the burn lingered a bit, but not disturbingly so, and not in any kind of painful way.  The peach by itself has great flavor- great heat too, but since I sampled that one after the white, I didn't get as much of a shock of heat.  Made some stellar tacos for lunch today.

She won, no doubt.  I totally need to find someone to play this with.  Maybe my sister next week :)

Oh no, we totally need to play the POPPER roulette.  I bet we could even get the spouses to play if there were bacon involved.

I ordered from Pepperlover last Friday after getting discouraged about some of my pepper plants this year.  I ordered from another company, and nothing I've planted from them is growing true to what they are supposed to be.  So after reading all the threads here, I ordered from Pepperlover- and they already arrived today! I'm super excited, and the extras that were put in my package were ones that I was considering anyway, but decided not to.

 

I'm already a fan.  I can't wait to grow these.

The last time we moved, I was in the same situation. I didn't know exactly where/when we'd be moving, but I couldn't stand the thought of not having my garden. So I started plants, and then we moved before it was time to get them in the ground, so timing worked great for that. I moved my plants around in rubbermaid containers, so there was no damage, I didn't lose any in the actual moving process

However, one thing I did not factor in is that it takes time to prepare the ground for a new garden space. I did the bare minimum that year, and my garden was awful. Absolutely everything failed that year, I almost gave up gardening for good, I was so disheartened.

So I would suggest starting just a very few seeds, and plan to plant them in pots for this first year. Start varieties that make you happy, and that will grow well in a pot. That will give you time to get to know the new space you're living in and really do the garden right, and then timing on the move doesn't matter quite so much. Move the plants to their pots when they're ready for it, and then you're not adding stress by worrying about plants and moving.

In Topic: Newbie With First Hot Sauce- Straining Q?

lurking for a few years? im glad you finally joined, :welcome:


Sadly, yes, years. But my casual daliance with hot peppers may have finally blossomed into something a little bit more.

The hot sauce really turned out well. I poured it out into 4 ounce canning jars and have put it away in the extra fridge. It will be interesting to see how long it lasts.

I love the idea of giving it as gifts in the future! I know plenty of people who would love a great homegrown hot sauce.

I happen to like a good, thick, pulpy, almost "chunky" sauce. Perhaps with the consistency of applesauce?


Yes, thick enough to really coat the tongue and tantalize with the pops of fire and flavor.
