#1530632 Temperature control for perfection

Posted by SavinaRed on Yesterday, 01:10 PM

Wow, I thought I was the only one who knew what a French press coffee maker was.  Only know for dating one of those fancy women back in the day, but still.  So how do you know what the right temperature is?

take a look here

I just ordered this for my pour over , french press and aero press coffee so that I can make the perfect cup of java. My son has the $100 version but I'm a cheapskate haha

I can't do pod coffee anymore we have them at work and they just don't compare to roasting your own beans and making a pour over or french press/ aero press coffee. And the best part all my coffee grounds go in my soil or in containers. No waste  :)

#1529434 [Feb 19] What are you working on this week?

Posted by SavinaRed on 19 February 2018 - 10:19 AM

Spent yesterday loading 3 yards of fresh new bark in my back yard it looks good again. Now I can enjoy the fruits of my labor this season lol. Its suppose to drop to 29* tomorrow morning so I'll have to protect a few things out there after work today. Other then that I'm not doing much this week. Everything here is budding and blooming now all my fruit trees, raspberries, blueberries, mulberries, strawberries, plum, pluot, nectarine, peaches, lemons and still waiting for my mandarins and avocados which will bloom in March. I have a few ripe Rocotto's I will be eating this week  :)

That would be pretty neat. I have been hankering to try growing black peppercorns.

You could grow them in Florida I tried to in Cali but my plant died they are really sensitive to the cold. Logee has them for sale.

#1527339 My first attempt at jalapeno poppers

Posted by SavinaRed on 12 February 2018 - 10:37 PM

They look grrrrrrreat. Like other have said maybe some hab jack or pepper jack cheese or hotter jals. Maybe try some aji rojo a bigger, hotter more flavorful pepper or even a rocotto popper.

Also Tomatoes with go into larger containers outside I picked up 3 one foot size yesterday at my local nursery. I might re-bark my backyard this weekend if I can borrow someones truck. 




#1527119 What's the hottest thing you're growing this year?

Posted by SavinaRed on 12 February 2018 - 11:57 AM

if my moruga survived the winter that will be it if not it will be a Red Savina. I'm over the superhots. Its all about moderate heat and excellent flavor for me these days. Then next in line will be MOA's and Jamaican Hot Chocolates. After this comes Rocottos and Various Baccatums - Aji's.
