Organic mulch

26 May 2019 - 09:36 AM

As you may know, I try to do total organic growing.


I have never used mulch.


I am tired of pulling weeds and grass from my raised beds.


Is there a totally organic mulch, that is, with no dyes or other additives?

The list:



Brown Large Scorpion cross - Mine
Big Black Mama cross – Mine
Gnarly Chocolate Bhut Jolokia - Mine
ScotchBrain – FreeportBum
Red Primo (from saved seed 2017) – Primos Peppers
Chocolate Primo/Reaper (CPR) – White Hot Peppers
Chocolate Primo/Reaper (CPR) – ButchT
Primo Chocolate – White Hot Peppers
Jay’s Peach Ghost Scorpion (JPGS) - RFC
Jamaican Hot Chocolate Habanero – Trade Winds
Reaper/Naga Morich - Peppernorth
Ecuadoran Hot Lemon Cayenne - Burpee


Trying to cut back on number of plants, if I do two each, that will be 24 plants. Last year, I had 34 in the raised bed, 8 in The Box, and 6 more in growbags, 48 total.


I may start some plants for friends, if they want.


Target start date is February 9.



So, you like hot peppers, do ya?

We have a new controller at work, real nice guy.


This afternoon he approached me asking if I sell my peppers.


I said yes, but he should realize they are very hot.


He said, yeah I got some jalapenos at home. To which I replied, mine are quite a bit hotter.


Like Habaneros, he asked. I said, no mine are basically all hotter than Ghost peppers. He said, well my son eats that Ghost pepper sauce, he would probably like them. I replied, before I sell you some, let me give you a few as a sample.






Red CPR, Chocolate NagaBrains #2, Skunk Red, Apocalypse Chocolate, Chocolate Reaper/Scorpion.


I wonder which his son will like best?

Thinking about selling

I have never sold any of the peppers I have grown, but I have considered it. I have given away hundreds.


Problem is, I have no idea what to charge or how to go about it.


I say this upfront; I will never use PayPal, and I understand that is what most everyone uses for Internet sales.



Internodal spacing.

For those who have plants started under lights; typically, what are your internodal spacing measurements like?


I always seem to have very short, broad plants while under the lights.


I wonder if this in any way generally affects how tall the plants will be once they are outdoors and in the ground.


Pics are appreciated.
