    USDA Small Lots of Seed Permit

    I just had a seed order confiscated by customs. It is the first time that has happened to me. It was coming from Holland, so maybe that was part of the problem. In any event, it made me realize that nine years ago I started to get a USDA Small Lots of Seed permit to allow importation, but I...

    Bleach Dilution Ratio

    Greetings. I have always bleach treated my seeds after harvesting to kill any seed-borne nasties. All commercial bleaches used to be about a 5% sodium hypochlorite solution, so to get to my desired concentration (3%), I used 3 parts water to 2 parts bleach. However, Clorox has recently begun...

    Anyone using one of these? I've seen them all over Facebook, and they seem to have some advantages, but I'm wondering if anyone has used one and can give a real deal review.

    Tower Garden

    I drank the Kool-aid and shelled out mega dollars for one of these big PVC contraptions. I'm trying my first winter grow in my basement, but I've never grown in hydroponics or aeroponics before, and wonder how long from germination you should wait before plugging a seedling into the...

    "Moruga Long" vs. Red Devil's Tongue

    I grew some seed from Peppermania marked "Moruga Long," but I can't find any information about that variety and they appear to me to be the same pods that other sites have listed as the Devil's Tongue Red. They appear to be an elongated hab and have wrinkles, but have a smooth, shiny skin...

    Ok here is a sauce recipe. I made this last year and it was damn tasty. I skipped the bell peppers and used New Mexico Heritage 6-4s and Billy Goat Habaneros instead. It was a searing, but not overwhelming heat, and had great flavor. THICK & SWEET HOT SAUCE 8 oz red ripe bell pepper 2 lbs...
