How many peppers...

12 September 2019 - 04:22 PM

would you sell for $100?


200? 300? 400? 500?


I have a co-worker who wants '$100 worth of peppers'.



Ferment attempt

Half gallon.


ScotchBrains, SB7J, garlic, pearl onions, coriander seed, black/white/green/pink peppercorns, crystallized ginger, 4% brine solution.



Pickling spices?

07 August 2019 - 03:48 PM

I have never done a lacto-ferment, so what does everyone add as pickling spice?


I was thinking some garlic cloves and peppercorns. What else?


I will be doing some superhots; Primos, Scorpion crosses. Also some regular hots; such as ScotchBonnet crosses.


So, once the ferment is done, do I drain off the salt water and replace with vinegar solution for long-term storage or not?

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?

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.
