    alkhall 2021

    Not going to be much this year. We are adding a privacy fence, so the raised bed is out of commission until next year, hopefully bigger and better.   Anyway, I have three clones that survived of the five cuttings I took last October. These are (I believe) and unintentional cross of a Red Primo...

    fermenting Ferment to pickle.

    After fermenting (brining), I was thinking about pickling (vinegar and pickling spices) pepper rings.   Or, is that not something I can, or should, do?

    fermenting Another Super Hot ferment

    Red Primo on the left, what were supposed to be CPR on the right.   I am beginning to suspect, since the CPR that I took the pod from that produced the seeds for this plant was growing next a Red Primo last year, that I have a CPR/Red Primo cross.   They definitely are not the same; when I was...

    Pickling spices?

    I have never done a lacto-ferment, so what does everyone add as pickling spice?   I was thinking some garlic cloves and peppercorns. What else?   I will be doing some superhots; Primos, Scorpion crosses. Also some regular hots; such as ScotchBonnet crosses.   So, once the ferment is done, do I...

    organic Organic mulch

    As you may know, I try to do total organic growing.   I have never used mulch.   I am tired of pulling weeds and grass from my raised beds.   Is there a totally organic mulch, that is, with no dyes or other additives?

    Am I being too picky?

    I purchased two Eye Hortilux FS+UV T5HO lamps from an online retailer.   One end of both lamps is missing some of the phosphor coating. I have not installed the lamps, so they are in the condition I received them.     I have asked for replacement or refund, but both the vendor and the...

    So, you like hot peppers, do ya?

    We have a new controller at work, real nice guy.   This afternoon he approached me asking if I sell my peppers.   I said yes, but he should realize they are very hot.   He said, yeah I got some jalapenos at home. To which I replied, mine are quite a bit hotter.   Like Habaneros, he asked. I...

    Thinking about selling

    I have never sold any of the peppers I have grown, but I have considered it. I have given away hundreds.   Problem is, I have no idea what to charge or how to go about it.   I say this upfront; I will never use PayPal, and I understand that is what most everyone uses for Internet sales.

    Internodal spacing.

    For those who have plants started under lights; typically, what are your internodal spacing measurements like?   I always seem to have very short, broad plants while under the lights.   I wonder if this in any way generally affects how tall the plants will be once they are outdoors and in the...
