    Desert Grow 2020

    The last few growing years have been filled with disappointment, outright disaster, and greatly reduced interest.  But then 2020 came along and 'gifted'  :rolleyes: me with plenty of time to devote to the hobby! The Pepper Zone sucked me in big time.   Results to date are fantastic, at least by...

    free Free plants in Tucson.

    Planted waaaay too many of the damn things this year!  I have about 24 beer-cup plants in need of a good home.  Free, or pay a buck or two if you can.  Most are baccatum, but there are also a few Thai, NuMex, Yellow S.B., and one or two stupid-hot varieties. East side. PM me!   From memory: Aji...

    Anyone tried roulette spicy mashed potatoes?

    Inspired by the chips, I'm going to make variably spicy mashed taters for a TG potluck.  Plenty of small chunks of assorted mild-ish peppers, with the occasional red and yellow fatalii or Bih and J. substituting for the milder varieties.  The trial batch went well - my face is still smoking!   :)

    What the heck are these things?

    Found a pair of these ugly buggers chewing nice holes in one of my plants.     Any ideas as to what they are, other than "Flying Space Bugs?"

    Fresh Bat Poop?!

    Bridge-Bat Poop? This evening I went to observe the nightly exodus of Free Tailed bats from beneath a local bridge here in Tucson.  These guys eat tons of insects each night and there are significant amounts of 'pellets' covering the ground. A minute's effort with a broom and dustpan would have...

    Assaholic Birds!

    Got home to find 4 empty pots on my seedling table.  Looking around, I found 2 wilted, dying plants laying pitifully on the table. The other two were just GONE!  It seems a local species of bird is getting its jollies by uprooting my 3~4 inch young plants. This happened a few times last year as...

    vendor ChileseedUSA - assorted 'New Mexico' varieties.

    I haven't bought anything from these folks, but do want to point out that they kindly provided seeds and a nice prize to the 2016 THP Big Jim contest now underway.  They have great prices on a number of New Mexico style varieties (and BT Scorp if you're looking to plant half an acre of pain.)  ...

    UPDATE:  Sold a box and gave some away for Halloween.  Don't have quite enough for another box...         Got another batch, straight off the plants here in sunny (Holy crap, it's raining!? ) Aridzona.   Your choice of peppers. Mix and match to stuff a SFRB.      Aji Angelo, Aji Pineapple, Aji...

    Mixed SFRB - $16

    This batch should fill a SFRB quite nicely.   For scale, the Aji Angelo and longer Cap 267 are exactly 4" long, including the stem.    No pesticides ever used.   Spiraling in, clockwise, from upper left.   Fatalii, CAP 267, Inca Red Drop, Bih Jolokia, Aji Angelo, LT Cayenne, Rainforest, Bishop's...

    Everyone, please give a warm welcome to George!

    Meet my new pet. I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him (very gently) and name him, "George." George will get all the old pepper leaves he can eat.  (And the little f**ker eats a lot!) I'll post occasional updates as he eats and poops and gains weight and eats and poops some more!   (Hey...

    container Calcium for container plants. PPM?

    When applying a Calcium Acetate additive to container/soil plants, what strength should I be aiming for? I've been adding a 'pinch' of ~1/2 teaspoon with each 2 gallon jug but would like to refine this dose somewhat.  I see the hydro guys aim for ~180ppm of Ca in their brew.   Living in Az, I go...

    Noob! How to transfer heat of powders into meat?

    I'm looking to make some 'Roulette Drumsticks' for Memorial Day.  The idea is similar to the chips - that the legs will look identical, all covered with the same sauce and then grilled, but that a few will have an extra heaping helping of hellfire in the meat itself.    I've got a fair variety...

    Big Box Peppers. Anyone grown these?

    The local Big Box store is ramping up for the Spring blitz. Apart from the usual California Bell and Cayenne varieties, they had a number of somewhat novel pepper seeds on sale.   Has anyone grown these guys?  They look sorta tempting.
