Guru's Garden - Traveling the World in Search of Peppers

Just starting this glog now so it's one less thing to do in a few months when I'm knee deep in compost and getting things in the ground.
 
Not much to report at the moment. Strains yet to be determined, but I'll probably end up growing too many like always...lol
 
 
Only thing that's going on right now is a clean back patio and the chickens doing their part turning over my compost pile on the daily. Intersted in seeing how the soil microbes appreciate the added chicken poop!

Hope everyone has had a decent winter so far and here's to happy germination!

EDIT UPDATE: This glog has turned into an ongoing overwintering, greenhouse and soil building how-to!

Thanks for watching. Compost high in humic acid. Smells like earth. Smells like going into the forest and raking back the leaves under the biggest tree and smelling that top layer of black gold.

That is a bug we don't see in our area.
Perhaps there are other assassin bugs
that are endemic here, but I don't know.

Assassin bugs are good to have in the garden, but be careful with them. They have no qualms with biting YOU, and it's said to be very painful. Still, a good bug to have around.
