yield Growdown Throwdown 2023

You agree to send your SASBE for the seeds, to PARTICIPATE and send back bulk seeds to me.

  • Yes, I will enter the battlefield.

  • No, I'm scared to lose to better growers.


Results are only viewable after voting.
Apologies for getting to this so late in the month, but life happens and contrary to popular belief, peppers come second. Having said that, I'm putting a slight spin on this year's annual Growdown Throwdown.

This year, there will be no vote. We have a goal. Based on discussion in 2022's thread, I've taken the liberty of choosing the cultivar to be grown. This year we will be growing Peppa Peach Stripey.

There are limited packs of seed that I will be returning to those who wish to adhere to the SASBE requirement only, as well as the bulk seed return requirement in the end. Each pack will contain only 5 isolated seeds of this line. Our goal is to not only win the Growdown Throwdown same as always, but also to produce as much seed of this line as we can, so that I can send them to Chris Fowler at the end of the season. I was asked to help him produce seed and failed miserably this season, so we will knock two birds out with one stone, so to speak. Packs are first come first serve. When they run out...that's it.

All rules are the same as every year. If you aren't hip to the rules, do yourself a favor and check the past Growdown threads. Everyone should know how this works by now. So...the poll will only serve as our list of willing participants that agree to send bulk seed back to me at the end of the contest. Only vote if you are willing to adhere to participation rules.

As an added bonus, there will be a potential runner up position this year for "Best In Stripes" behind the first place yield winner.

Just for clarity, if I have understood the "SASBE requirements" correctly, I send an envelope with money for return postage, and inside that envelope is another envelope used to send seed back?
If that is correct is there another way to send the money, perhaps paypal or so?

I completely understand if thats too much hassel for you, I just wanted to know :)

My annual problem as I can't send SASBE from Canada to the States... but I could easily transfer you the needed amount through Paypal (or any other e-transfer platform).

SASBE = Self Addressed Stamped Bubble Envelope.

I won’t be accepting PayPal etc. I will not be in the US to handle packaging, payment or shipping. I’m packing up the limited amount of packs now, and they will be placed with my family for simple returns of qualified SASBE. If you are international and agree to adhere to requirements of the growdown, please get with someone from the US that doesn’t mind forwarding your pack along. I will take note of all qualified entries, and make sure I know the US contestants that will need two packs in their SASBE.

Hi guys/gals, I will need someone nice enough to send me a packet of these seeds. I will gladly send you some $$$ to cover the bubble enveloppe and the postage. Waiting for your PM🤘

I'm sure one of the northern US growers can help forward them along. We will get you sorted however it gets done.

Also, only 5 votes? I guess we officially ran everyone off! :lol:

No worries, I'll follow from the sidelines. Good luck everyone
 
I’m in and from the states and haven’t sent in my envelope. I just read this new 2023 growdown post. I can also send to Bou since I was going to send him some seeds soon.
