    tutorial The Comprehensive Guide to Over-Wintering

    I guess i would would rate my success as moderate I overwintered a bell, a jalapeno and a habanero plant. I battled aphids a couple of times but for the most part the plants stayed pretty robust for most of the winter. Right towards the end of winter they all started to show a little stress...

    UPDATE: Haven't updated in a while. I figured you grizzled vets don't want to hear me ramble on noobishly about my one little Ugly Seedling. But geez the universe really does seem to have it out for this little guy. Of all the problems I had this past spring and summer , squirrels were not...

    Catnip

    We have two cats. We bought some catnip once a few years back. One cat largely ignored it. The other cat rolled around in it, freeked out and then pissed on my couch. So no more cat nip. Been reading about cat grass lately which I guess is just grass formulated to aid in digestion and whatnot...

    We had a couple of nights in a row get down to around 35-36. I went ahead and picked all the tomatoes that were left and brought the peppers inside as a dry run for overwintering. Moving them back outside I broke a branch on the habanero plant, which explaines the dark green Habaneros. I guess...

    Southern pepper sauce is vinegar salt and green tobacco peppers. Its a staple around here on cooked greens ( collards especially) and sometimes on green beans. You can reuse the peppers several times . Just refill the bottle with white vinegar when it gets low and let it sit for a few days...

    Another little harvest Three medium sized bell peppers, 5 or 6 jalapenos and 4 Habaneros. You cant see them but there are 3 or 4 small grape tomatoes in the bowl as well. Temps have dipped into the high 40s a couple of times at night recently so I guess the summer season is coming to a...

    UPDATE: TLSTC is alive and well! The first pod is growing, and new growth is happening. More leaves and another blossom has formed. Its probably too late in the season to get more than a couple of pods off of it, but even one seemed so unlikely a couple of months ago. I'm counting this as a...

    Thanks for your reply. As i said I'm still feeling my way through the basics. I know overwintering is probably more if a thing for more experienced gardeners but I figured even if all the plants die I haven't really lost anything. And if even 1 lives then I've gained something. I'm going to try...

    Yeah its usually pretty mild here (near Columbia) overall but there will likely be a few 2 or 3 day stretches where it gets down into the mid to hi 20s at night. Probably just enough to kill some pepper plants. I got the wife on board for me to use one of our kids old rooms to bring them in...

    seeds The Little Seedling That Could

    Last winter my wife's co worker gave her a packet of jalapeno seeds. And it sat on our kitchen counter for a couple of months. Round about April I got a wild hair and planted a few of them. Now here I should tell you up until that point I had never planted anything. I had no idea what I was...
