#1638359 Should I test my skills?

Posted by Hybrid Mode 01 on Yesterday, 05:06 PM

     I'd go with thighs. Besides being my favorite, they have a uniform shape and thickness as well as some fat. They're easy to deal with, they take flavor well and they're more forgiving than other pieces.

     Also, GO GET 'EM! You know you got this. From what I've seen come off your smoker, excellence is your par.

Yo! I'll take that free cutting! And I'll post pics of my weekend haul after this!

     Heeeeell yes! That worked out great. I knew your name was familliar for some reason - you asked my back in July last year for cuttings. I didn't take any pachanoi cuttings last winter, (I know that's what you wanted) but I cut my bridgesii hedge back hard (you'll like them better anyway). T. bridgesii are way easier to grow IMO and I think they're prettier, especially when they start pushing new growth in spring when they start waking up.

     PM me your addy and I'll get them in the mail this week! :cheers:

Update on a Cactus cutting I received from Hybrid_Mode01.



     Hell yeah, bud! :cheers: That just made my day!


     How are they doing so far this spring? I just put mine outside last weekend and they got their first taste of rain on Sunday night.  Now that they're getting some sunlight I'll probably give them a shot of fish emulsion and some more water soon. I'll get some pics of them once they wake up.




     Also, the next person to respond to this thread gets a free rooted T. bridgesii cutting. :cool:

     I love bringing Spam on backpacking/fishing/camping trips. Pop a can, cut it into hotdog size sticks and roast it over a fire. It makes a great midnight snack or breakfast or lunch or whatever. You don't even need buns if you have enough beer.

#1573257 Recommended top 5 sauces

There's a Caribbean section separate from the hot sauce in most supermarkets...



     :think: I'm lucky if I can find a MexicAsian section where I live. I can't remember the last time I shopped at a store that had more than an "ethnic section" bigger than 6 square feet. Not that I'm complaining though. My commute to the rifle range is shorter than my commute to work! :metal:

Well dang. So the trick it to leave them alone. Lol I'll try... But that's a tall order!

     A lot of times cacti need to experience a long, cool, dry dormant period to get them "in the mood" to flower. The increase in sunlight, temperature and moisture that breaks the dormant season is what triggers flowering.

     Granted this is all hearsay by me. I have yet to successfully trick my cacti into thinking it's "time".

#1560336 Chile Pepper Powder mixes.

     Stems and all, eh? :think:   I bet it's good. Sweet savory cayenne rounding out the bonnets and red habs with a little smoke.  :drooling:

Have you found one to be more effective for ladybugs? Are there flowers/plants to encourage Green Lacewings to stick around?


     If I had to choose only one, probably marigolds. I don't have any evidence to show that they're better though. Any low maintenance plant that keeps producing flowers all summer long is a winner I figure. Lantana is another good one because it can endure lots of neglect (forgetting to water). It can be in full sunlight with bone dry soil in >90o temps for a few days and perk up like nothing happened as soon as you remember to water it - without even dropping a flower. Plus it's pretty.

     Lacewings eat pollen and nectar just like ladybugs. I think any plant that attracts one will attract the other. Once I started planting flowers among the other plants in my garden I couldn't believe how many lacewing eggs I saw on all my plants.
