    raised-bed Well, 2021 Is A Wash!

    Just a little update... It has been abnormally hot and dry here for the past long while, along with no rain and none in teh forseeable future. With that said, I had given up on this years grow and have been attending my strawberries and flowers and wrote off my peppers, and paying no attention...

    raised-bed Well, 2021 Is A Wash!

    Thank you. I have used that in the past, but when I ran out, I bought a bottle of liquid version. But as this year is a wash, I may just go grab another box of it, as I do remember that my plants did do well with it when I used it. If memory serves me right, the one I had was labelled as for...

    raised-bed Well, 2021 Is A Wash!

    It is nice to see and hear of others having a good go at it this year. Heck, even seeing others peppers is joy enough to make me smile when mine have not worked out this year.

    raised-bed Well, 2021 Is A Wash!

    Thank you all for the help, replies, and encouragement. It is greatly appreciated. I may try somethingelse yet, but not feeling like it will go anywhere. Heck, we're sitting at just a hair above 50 Fahrenheit currently again. The nights here in Manitoba have been crazy this year. Heck along our...

    raised-bed Well, 2021 Is A Wash!

    Well, there is no scientific evidence, but in the last couple of years, the peppers I had planted were not as big or as bearing as in the first few years. Yes, our weather this year has also been very poor compared to years past, which may also be a contributing factor. I had just thought that...

    raised-bed Well, 2021 Is A Wash!

    Well, I hate to have to post this, but I can and will say it now that this year is a total wash! I will not be getting anything. Everything was going good up till a coupel weeks ago. I did start a couple of weeks late in the house, but even at that, my peppers just did not seem to be doing as...

    Sorry to see that. I too have had similar, but on a much smaller scale. I was worried about my filament and what I have heard about them only having about a year shelf life so I invested into a sealed container with a rechargable air drier/desacent pack. Only time will tell I guess. Sealable...

    vendor Midwest Chileheads Seeds

    I just want to say that I was looking for a particular pepper seed to grow next year (yes, I started next years seed bank early), and I was helped out by a member here. I bought my seeds from him, and I received my seeds here very quickly to Canada. Very nice looking quality seeds. Fast friendly...

    seeds How Long Do Seeds Last?

    Thank you. Sorry I forgot the details of my storage methods. All seeds are stored in small zip seal type baggies. Then they were placed into a sports card holders in a 3/4" binder and stored in a closet in my basement that *may* get down to 68 degrees in winter, but house is generally kept...

    seeds How Long Do Seeds Last?

    Just curious as I am back again now and have not saved or bought seeds for 4 years since my last real 'big' harvest. Well, I started this year, and my ratio of stuff coming up is terrible. I am wondering if 4 year old seeds are less viable than more recent ones? If so, what do you do with old...

    Nice job with the printing! I too got myself one for Christmas this year past, and am having a blast with it. Been a very good and reliable printer too. It as well is an Ender-3. Been doing mostly stuff for my RC hobby, but some 'things' needed by friends and family.

    Glad To Be Back

    Hi all again. So I just thought I would throw this up here. I am back this year. I have been growing the past years still, but have just been busy and not spending much time online hence my absence, as well as getting back into some old hobbies. Anyways, last year was a so-so year fro harvest...
