Growdown Throwdown 2018 Yellow Brain Strain!


Growdown Throwdown 2017 Aji Lemon Drop!

02 December 2016 - 05:49 PM

Starting this now and will edit this original post as updates occur. New concept on an age old classic contest. 
 
Its simple.
 
Rather than seeing who can grow the tallest plant, we see who can harvest the most weight in pods from one plant. 
 
1. We all do a rather quick vote on a very readily available variety and order it ourselves from the same vendor. Let's pick a tried and true variety. Can be any, but lets get this done quickly. 
 
2. Contest begins (germination) no sooner than Jan 1 2017 and ends on December 31st 2017. One full revolution around our Sun. 
 
3. Same as always; no rules as to how you grow or when you harvest. HOWEVER, every harvest must be weighed and photographed. As harvest records come in, this original post will be updated. 
 
4. On December 31'st 2017 harvest records will be tallied and the winner crowned. 
 
 
Its that easy. 
 
Now who's in?! and what are we growing ?!  :party:

Guru's Garden - Traveling the World in Search of Peppers

26 January 2014 - 05:28 PM

Just starting this glog now so it's one less thing to do in a few months when I'm knee deep in compost and getting things in the ground.
 
Not much to report at the moment. Strains yet to be determined, but I'll probably end up growing too many like always...lol
 
 
Only thing that's going on right now is a clean back patio and the chickens doing their part turning over my compost pile on the daily. Intersted in seeing how the soil microbes appreciate the added chicken poop!

Hope everyone has had a decent winter so far and here's to happy germination!

EDIT UPDATE: This glog has turned into an ongoing overwintering, greenhouse and soil building how-to!
