    Been a crazy year, haven't kept up here but have in all my home gardens. I picked up a few aero gardens (including the bounty elite so its taller/bigger). I attempted to cross my own peppers this year and have seeds from it. I've used the aero for lettuce and basil thus far and its simple...

    chinense Reaper or Not to Reaper?

    Is it pretty normal for first reapers to non-conform to typical shape? I've got pictures of the plant/peppers and their shape is highly variable, from the habanero look to a ghost look to the newer growth peppers more strictly typical reaper shape. It almost seems as the plant goes it's getting...

    Unknown Green/yellow pepper

    I purchased these seeds off Pepper Joe last fall, they were purchased as red scotch bonnets. Well, I very well could be color blind, but as far as I can tell, these are not red, and they are definitely not scotch bonnets. I tried them, they got some punch to the heat (as green). I've had them as...

    issue Bacterial Spot, Burn, Light Burn or something else?

    The past few days I noticed a change on some of the leaves on my seedlings. I noticed they had this darker brown/yellow/black type thing on leaves going on, near the ends of each leave. Seems to go through all the way through leave. I trimmed off those leaves and separated tehe seedlings from...

    Zone 6a, 1st year growing from seeds

    I found a passion for growing in my gardens the past half decade. What started as buying plants at the local nursery, has turned into a quest to grow from seed. Last year I had a orange habanero that was special, For some reason it really stuck out to me, and everything clicked. I invested a lot...
