    My first hot sauces and some issues

      The link you provided even talks about doing what I did.   "Gather up your ingredients and supplies, and get creative! Blender First or Blender Last?  Either will work. The ingredients can be coarse chopped, cooked, and then blendered. Using a food mill on a cooked sauce will give you an even...

    My first hot sauces and some issues

    Before our first freeze I grabbed all my garden peppers and decided to try my luck at making some hot sauces with them.   Ive pickle jalapenos before and watched my dad make home made jellies, so I have some basic experience with safety procedures.   I boiled my peppers, garlic, onion in water...

    Help with growing Carolina Reaper and Moruga Scorpion

    So I have some new information.  I check the media I was using and it turns out, I thought it was seedling media but it was potting/garden media.  So that may be part of the problem.  The second thing I found was that I bought a PH testing kit.  The soil I was using was PH 6.0.  Is that too...

    Help with growing Carolina Reaper and Moruga Scorpion

    I think what I am going to do is run to the store after work and get a ph tester and some other brand of seedling soil and see if maybe that will help out.  I order some more CR and Scorp seeds that should arrive around Monday.  Maybe there is something wrong with the PH that I can diagnose or...

    Help with growing Carolina Reaper and Moruga Scorpion

    Yeah, may be using the wrong term.  Potting soil/ seed starting soil.  I forget brand and type and I am at work where I cant see it.  But its not garden soil, its soil intended to start seeds in pots.

    Help with growing Carolina Reaper and Moruga Scorpion

    Last year I bought 5 CR seeds and none sprouted.  I was using the  "standard" method of planting the seeds about 1/4 to 1/2 inch under the soil and then watering as the soil lost moisture.  My jalapenos, habaneros, bells and everything did great but none of my reapers sprouted.   This year I...

    seeds Help!!! How to remove seed hull

    Thanks for both responses.  I let a water drop sit on the hull for about 45 minutes.  With tweezers and a needle I was able to remove the hull.  The leaves I am not sure if they are viable or not.  They dont look healthy but they dont look dead either.  I put it under my light and hopefully it...

    seeds Help!!! How to remove seed hull

    Ive had 2-3 sprouts this year that the hull just never came off.  They were generic peppers so I wasnt too concerned if they didnt make it.  They all eventually died.  My first ever Moruga Scorpion started to sprout about a week ago.  The hull wont come off and I dont want to lose this sprout if...

    Waiting for the Po Po... why?

      It comes down to doing things their own way.  I grew up with family that are as country as it gets.  But I've lived in and around some of the most populated land in Texas.  I live in the city, work a desk job and live the life of what most would call "City folk".  But in my spare time, I hunt...
