#1456949 5P chillis

Posted by mr.turtle on 16 May 2017 - 05:07 PM

So i was in the local supermarket after work this evening, just picking up a beer or four, and came upon a surprise 5P chillies in the reduced section. This discovery made my day so much I had to force myself to buy sausages and bacon as  well...


Gonna be epic sandwich time tomorrow for sure..


they're not fancy chillies like us chilli heads at thp are used to just bog standard supermarket chillies. But still a bargain chilli is a bargain chilli.

Any of you guys ever had any life/breakfast arrangement changing pepper bargains?

#1456442 Tips for keeping dogs away from my plants?

Posted by mr.turtle on 15 May 2017 - 05:13 AM

I remember seeing cat repelling plants at my local garden centre. Coleus canina was it's name i believe.

It was meant to be most effective on cats but also advertised to repel dogs.

I don't personally know if they worked, they smelled really funky though and i didn't ever see any cats near them.

The garden centre did have a dog though he wouldn't of even reached up to where they were on the stand.


Maybe that might be the way to go companion planting just as long as you do enough research to make sure whatever you go for is non toxic for your dogs or any othe local wildlife.

I never bother. The season here is too short to be picking flowers or topping.

Thanks, man! Really excited about the lemon drops, as I've never even tasted one yet. And I'm looking forward to sharing them with friends who won't even try any of the superhots. Maybe they'll be a 'gateway drug' for 'em!



Either that or your friends will just wait until your lemon drops are ready then shoot you whilst running away laughing manically with a crudely hacked lemon drop plant in their hands.


you can't have just one lemon drop you have to have them all.


They're that good.

Your plants look really nice and healthy.


Wish my lemon drops were the first to flower. Probably one of the best peppers ever.

#1451092 My 2017 pepper progress, yes I have a problem.

Posted by mr.turtle on 28 April 2017 - 04:57 PM

I feel cheated when I looked at this pic on my phone it actually looked like two greenhouses! (jealous much)


I also feel cheated because all your plants look better than mine QQ.


Good luck you look like you're going to have a very peppery year.

#1449891 Lingham's Hot Sauce

Posted by mr.turtle on 24 April 2017 - 03:51 AM

Yeah i meant grilled cheese. I apoligize but my bad teeth and horrendous over bite make it difficult for us lot to pronounce it that way. :)

To be more precise you need a load of fresh oregano and about 4 or 5 lemon drops whilst using this sauce to get the full effect.

Can confirm tastiness. goes really well with cheese toasties imo.


Could easily get through a bottle of that in under a week.


i really have to order some of it now,

#1448864 Peter peppers

Posted by mr.turtle on 21 April 2017 - 05:10 AM

I tried growing the peter one year. Was a really nice chilli seemed like it would dry really well and was reasonably prolific.


However none really grew to the shape i was expecting so i was a little dissapointed. Only planted 3  or 4 though so could have just been i managed to get the ones that would be slightly off anyway or none of my seeds were the best pheno.


Unfortunately even though i had seeds leftover it didn't make the cut for this years grow.

F.y.i chillimas lasts all summer gets overwintered and annoys the hell out of anybody who doesn't like chilli.

#1012645 Location means everything for peppers doesn't it?

Posted by mr.turtle on 29 June 2014 - 04:39 AM

Going back over my pictures of grows from other years this morning I noticed how even slightly different places in the same country can have a drastic difference (UK btw).


My moms conservatory used to be great for growing in, all my supers were starting to pod up nicely by early may. Moved out into a nearby town recently, where I'm growing mostly in a greenhouse and garden, and now have almost nil pods of my supers.


Although I suppose that could be part of the learning curve with a new place.


Only thing that's going really well for the moment is my super chillies................. pffft.
