#1518703 Finding These Seeds a Home

Posted by cone9 on 17 January 2018 - 07:57 AM

I am very interested in your seeds.

Due to health problems,my collection is old seeds that won't sprout.


PM me.




I have your address from 4 years ago.  If that has changed, please PM a current one.  Otherwise, I will also have an assortment out to you.  I've been a bit ill of late but on the mend so it may take me a week or so to ship.


You were very generous to me when I first joined and I suspect to many others as well.  It would be my pleasure to help you out.


Best wishes,

Thanks Karoo!


I have a good feeling about this season!


You have good dirt, a green thumb, sunshade(no need for that up here), a cooperative spouse and a THP family.


All the essentials for a fine pepper garden

#1518265 [Jan 15] What are you working on this week?

Posted by cone9 on 15 January 2018 - 03:01 PM

Recovering from the flu and germinating may pubes.

Glad to finally be doing both!

Lots of usable peppers there...good eating!


I just got 7 varieties of pube seed wet tonight (TY to you and Thegreenchilemonster).  I think I should have a couple more buried in my seedbox.  Excited to see what happens with my pube push.   Hoping for one that works well for me.


Buying peppers in the grocery stores up here is lean pickins.  But it occurred to me today that I should check out the Latino markets in the area.  We have a lot of Mexican and Guatemalan people in the county and several markets, so maybe some Manzano peppers may show up here.

That would be a welcome treat for me!


Have a good season.

#1517652 Airport X-Rays vs. Pepper Seeds

Posted by cone9 on 12 January 2018 - 06:35 PM

run through an X-Ray machine, will this damage the seeds?

















... but, if you eat the peppers they produce your sons will have three testicles.

#1516372 Serious Question, didn't know where else to ask it.

What better place than THP for accurate assessments of a hot sauce. 

Not everyone who likes hot pepper sauce is here, but most everyone who is here likes hot pepper sauce.


I had a look at your testimonials page.  As for the serial killers, I personally find that a bit of a turn off - in poor taste, if you will!

In my mind, those people don't deserve to be remembered.  The likes of Jeffrey Dahmer should be burned, buried or locked away for eternity and left to be know to future generations only by those who stumble upon them in old court records.  In two hundred years most of us will be little more than a name on a gravestone.  Nefarious people haven't earned even that.

Best of luck with your business.

#1516099 How Important Is A Fan For Growing Peppers?

Posted by cone9 on 05 January 2018 - 05:30 PM

If using a fan, be mindful or your watering procedure with new seedlings in small/peat pots.  It is easy to dry them out with too much air.  You need to strike a good balance between air movement and water so you neither dry them or drown them.

Nice start. 


Don't you just love watching your new plants starting to grow?  It so nicely ushers in the new season and the excitement to follow.

#1515589 too sour fermented hot sauce?

Posted by cone9 on 03 January 2018 - 10:59 AM

( GIP - I feel you pain!  I can't buy sauerkraut I really like and so my quest to make my own begins!)

#1515587 too sour fermented hot sauce?

Posted by cone9 on 03 January 2018 - 10:56 AM

You would have nothing to lose by by adjusting the pH of a same sample with baking soda as well as adding some sugar, if that suits  your tastes.  At 2.7 you have plenty of wiggle room!

#1514697 Pepper People are the Best

The biggest barrier with any new food product is just getting people to try it.  What's in the bottles is what will keep buyers coming back again (or not), but the way he's presented his case is guaranteed to get the jury's attention.  I'd be cleared guilty of snatching the evidence straight away if I saw that bottle of that white sauce  on the shelf.   All he'll need are a few flashing lights just to escort shoppers down the sauce isle!


Good job, officer!

Hi Paul - been a while!


That's my plan.  I hope to grow 6 to 8 varieties, some in ground, some in pots, see if I can get a combo that does better than ONE POD!

I am wintering-over the plant above to see if it does more as a 2 yo.  It's in the basement now under lights.  I'll have a jump start but I suspect it will mainly come down to needing enough warm, daylight hours and nights without the chilly air before even the mature plant will do much!

Thanks, Scott.  PM is incoming, if you need anything I have just ask.


Those lightening pods are some seriously interesting peppers!

I saved plenty of seed.  If you want some just PM your name and address to me

#1509916 love the color on this one!

Posted by cone9 on 09 December 2017 - 09:24 AM

Beautiful!   I also make a red beet based sauce that is one of my favorites in flavor, color and texture.

We certainly don't need the "unlike" button to appear for any of Pr0d's pics!
