    vendor Midwest Chileheads Seeds

    I just want to say that I was looking for a particular pepper seed to grow next year (yes, I started next years seed bank early), and I was helped out by a member here. I bought my seeds from him, and I received my seeds here very quickly to Canada. Very nice looking quality seeds. Fast friendly...

    seeds How Long Do Seeds Last?

    Just curious as I am back again now and have not saved or bought seeds for 4 years since my last real 'big' harvest. Well, I started this year, and my ratio of stuff coming up is terrible. I am wondering if 4 year old seeds are less viable than more recent ones? If so, what do you do with old...

I have been growing the past years still, but have just been busy and not spending much time online hence my absence, as well as getting back into some old hobbies.

    2017 Is About To Get Real...

    Hi all again. It has been good to see many familiar faces here again. And at the same time, it feels great to be back. Just a little update. A couple of years ago, I toned it down a notch on my number of plants and as well, fell off the forum scene. This was only to be corrected last year in...

    Oops I Did It Again

    Just a little update for you all.  As I am a zone 3 grower, living just east of Winnipeg, we were unfortunate to get hit by a fairly heavy frost last night.  So, I got up early and went to water my plants to save them, only to find my garden hose and sprinkler frozen as well!  So I thought I...

    What To Do With Pods?

    Hi all. So before the time really comes, I would like to ask a few questions. As you all know, pods ripen while others are growing. I get the best mileage from dehydrated peppers, then ground. I would also like to do them all in one batch if possible. So would it be alright to pick my peppers...

    Bad Pepper Year This Year.....

    Oh well, as the title says.  I had started my seeds early January this year, zone 3, indoors in a south facing window, without grow lights.  So, my plants started off really well, then I had to top them due to planting too much and the space I had available was not enough for what I started.  My...

    Hardening Off Oops!

    Ok, so I will admit it.  This is ALL MY fault!  So I have been bringing my peppers in and out of the garage for the past week and a half faithfully.  In my opinion, as a second year grower, I can see that they are handling the full sun very well with no effects, so in my opinion they are...

    Ok.  I do not know what the hell is going on here, but I have 2 very weird plants here.  From the start.  Last June I planted a couple of Reaper and 7 Pot Jonah seeds just for fun and to test viability.  So they started and I put them into cups relatively early in their lives.  I later put the...

    Oops, I Think I Did It This Time

    Well, this is year number two for me growing this year, and I think I did it this time.  As I am in southern Manitoba and we had a crappy winter last year, very long and cold, followed by a crappy start to the season, very wet and rainy.  Then it went to a very hot and dry summer.  The gist of...

    My New Fly Traps

    Hi there.  I just received these two plants yesterday.  I have one other plant that is not doing well in my opinion.  So, I do not want these to die on me.  I am not sure on what to do to the ones with 'black' heads and or stems of these plants.  As well, it may show on the pictures, but one is...
