    Canadian Earthquake

    Anyone else feel that? Canada doesn't get earthquakes, what's going on? It was a 5.0 at the Quebec/Ontario border and felt all through Ontario / Northern US. Wondering if any New York / Pennsylvania / Ohio / Michican people felt it too. Ottawa area guys like Potawie would have been really...

    breeding "Rusty" 7Pot / Choco Bhut Cross

    Last night, myself and Madhatter did a bunch of pepper tasting, one of which turned out to be a choco bhut / 7 cross. I got the plant from Madhatter who was growing out a bunch of chocolate bhuts so that's what it was supposed to be. Surprisingly the pods grew like 7s with some slight bhutish...

    sun Sun Vs Shade - which plants can handle it?

    Most of my yard gets 5 - 8 hours sun per day which is working well for me. But there are a few spots where I'd like to put some 5 gallon containers which get 3 hours and another that gets about 10 hours. From experience, can anyone suggest ones that can handle tonnes of sun as well as little...

    Scorpion Stalemate - not growing

    I potted up a scorpion on Jan 30 and it hasn't grown at all in the past week. I pulled it up to re-pot thinking that maybe I had it too we (which I know I didn't). I was surprised to see that there is no root growth whatsoever. It's just kinda sitting there....and losing color slowly. I...

    Snagging some seeds from a restaurant

    yesterday I was in a restaurant having some dinner and added whatever chili products there were to spice up the meal a bit and I found this powder that wasn't super hot, but hotter than say the Pizza Hut style chili shakers. Tasted really good and I noticed that the powder still had seeds in...

    First Sprout

    Got my first sprout today. A paper lantern habanero....6 days in. Wasn't expecting anything this quickly but a nice surprise. Hopefully the superhots will follow suit over the next week or shortly after. The growing season never seems like it's started until you get that initial growth...

    Bruschetta Pain

    A quick bruschetta appetizer I threw together. One of my favorite foods. If I had fresh peppers ready I would have preferred to use those, but I opted for the PAIN 100% substitute which did just fine. Normally I don't add heat to bruscetta, but I was feeling the urge.

    seeds When do northerers start their seeds?

    A question for the Canadians and those of you from the norther parts of the US. When do you start your seeds indoors? I know that with the few months of summer we get, it's vital to have them at a progressed stage when transplanting outdoors to maximize the results. I started in March this...

    Peppers Falling Off

    After the flowering was complete for about 10 peppers on a few of my plants, the stem for the pepper dies and falls off. Is that a sign of things to come for those plants or is it normal for the first bunch to do that from time to time and then work itself out?? I'm wondering if it's too much...
