Temperature control for perfection

Yesterday, 12:56 PM

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






Some overwintered Aji pics outdoors

Here are a few peppers that made it through winter and taste pretty good, they are in my 8x4 raised bed that is 3 foot deep. In the next couple of weeks I will be pruning them way back and taking off the peppers and giving them lots of nutes for spring.

Berry Varieties

Who is growing what and lets hear your successes and failures and what growing zone are you in. I'm going to pick up a couple of new varieties of raspberry plants today the Baba Red and the Fall Gold. That will give me 6 different varieties this year. I have 7 different blueberry varieties , 6 strawberry varieties and 2 mulberry varieties. So far all mine are fruiting well and the pineberries were the hardest to get established but now in their 3rd season are doing great. Most of my berries came from this nursery



Red Jalapeno & Serrano Sauce

28 August 2017 - 02:24 PM

Yesterday I picked over a hundred jals and serrano peppers that were red and made my first sauce of the year. I used all the peppers which filled up 3/4 of my Blendtec and used 2 cups ACV, 1 sweet onion, 3 TBS of garlic, 1 TBS seasalt, 2 TBS honey, 1tsp smoked paprika and a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. It turned out really good and once cooked down made 10 bottles of bright red sauce. I'll try and post pics later. Its very tasty and everyone really liked the flavor profile. I thought I would try something a little different from the norm.

Piper nigrum

I just ordered a peppercorn plant from Logee. They have a vine type growth pattern and can get 10 plus feet. I love fresh pepper corns and can't wait to grow this plant to maturity. I'll post pics when I get the plant.
