Grow Logs for hot peppers.
🌴 Welcome to my GLOG! 🌴 I have a small urban terrace garden where I grow mainly peppers in containers. My location is Chiapas, Mexico. The local climate is tropical with pronounced dry and rainy seasons. The temperatures can sometimes be too much for the plants to bear (especially around Easter), but in general they manage. The climate makes...

First bunch of seeds, hope for a better year, probably end up with indoor/outdoor grow since I had the best results inside last year, as long as their not attacked.
As already stated in my welcome thread i'm fairly new to growing peppers. This is gonna be my second year of growing them. Last year was quite a succes, started out with ten variaties that i could find locally and ended up with a garden full of lush plants and dito harvests. The climate here is not ideal for growing peppers, especially the...
I have decided to start a dedicated Grow Log for the Purple Thunder Bhut Jolokia hybrid.    It made its first appearance in 2015: "This coloration might be the result of the intense light on these red Bhuts, but only 2/6 show the trait.  If it is a cross,the only purple-y plant near the bhut was Trippa's Mystery Cross.  All of these seeds...
Long-time THP veterans mourned the loss last August of Amarillo, Texas musician/songwriter/silversmith/chilehead Erin Mason, known to us here on the boards as P. Dreadie. Erin was an enigma, one of the most interesting and creative, yet gentle and loving guys I ever knew. Many of us may be unaware that he played harmonica in one of the original...
State of the Garden -Late Fall 2021 The whole of the fenced garden is 60x70 with 6" wove wire 8' tall Starting last fall, we built the first beds inside the newly leveled and fenced garden area. Garlic, shallots and a few fall greens were planted immediately. This spring about 3/4 of the fenced area was put into typical garden vegetable...
Just getting this started so I can get a url. I will post more about this in a couple of days. Happy New Year, 2021!
I've put this off long enough and now it's time to start "gloging". On January 1,2022 I picked the Brainstrains again. 1423 grams this time. And that means two more 1 1/2 pint jars for the freezer. And they're still alive and producing.
Everyone knows the rules by now...   Lets vote on this thing and get it moving since we are already behind a few days.    As per the customary flex, I want all my Growdown King crowning gifts to be given to the runner up in second place for 2020. Who was 2nd?   Make sure they get some goodies!            As for this year here are the candidates...
My real start of the season is still months away but I couldn't resist to put something in the soil already - Tasmanian Black! :dance:
OK! As we get rolling on the next phase of this ongoing series of marginal successes and impressive failures, let's take stock. Currently happy, healthy, and producing fruit: Casados Sugar Rush Peach Recently rooted via coffee filters and just planted in coir: Jamaican Red Hab (hi Paul!) Sugar Rush Cream (hi Paul!) Zapotec jalapeno (hi Mr...
Time to get ready for 2022! Hybird Commercial/personal glog I suppose, I'll track everything. Preparing the starter area today & Sunday. Super-hots get started next week. Plastic is to protect the lights on the shelves below from possible drips while watering. The boxes are warming mats, something new I'm trying this year. Super-hots get...
Welcome, my esteemed peers, to my 2nd annual glog. This will be my best attempt by far. No way it could be worse than my pitiful entry from last year, not even going to include a link to that stinky p.o.s. #1 – WIN BEFORE YOU BEGIN: i did what i said i was gonna do, which is get my own setup to grow from seeds. Flexing my new LED light, heat...
Figured that since I'm pretty new at this, and as it's also the first time I'm starting peppers (or anything) from seed that I'd take a run a creating a grow log. Hopefully, this will capture a wildly successful season, or, more likely, will serve as a reminder to me of things I did this year that I should change or improve upon for next year...
Another year has begun. This year as the last season comes to an end. Tonight Jan2 is our first frost of winter. So as I'm thinking of the grow season ahead. I am also pulling my final harvest. Had a terrible 2021 season due to Hurricane Ida. But I learned a lot about preparing for such an event. Still working on this year's list but do have...
Many thanks to those who indulged in my long winnowing process. I had assumed space would be my limiting factor, but it was calculating how much soil would cost that convinced me to narrow my focus yet again. After some heartbreaking cuts, the plan is now locked in! I just put the first seeds in for an H2O2 soak in advance of sowing tomorrow...
