Musky's 2015 half-assed glog

Hey gang! It's been a couple of years since I started a glog, so I figured I should give it another shot. I have always been a slacker about updating my glogs in the past, and I expect this one to be no different (hence the title). I will post the important stuff though, and eventually some xxx pepper porn. I promise. There will probably just be some lengthy gaps in between. Just think of it as a condensed version. :lol:
Okay, here we go! The first round of seeds hit the dirt 1/20/15. I'm trying out Burpee organic seed starting mix this time. It's a coco coir based mix that seems pretty nice, so we'll see how that works out. 72 cell trays, 2 seeds per cell (for most). I started some seeds I saved from different years of the same varieties to note any differences and isolate the best phenos. I will be growing in my back yard as always, but I will also have about 100 or so plants 25 miles north of the city like I did in 2012 and 2013.
First round: Chinense

Instead of starting off with a picture of some trays filled with dirt, here's one of my chilehead cat,T-Bone, carrying around his favorite toy... a Brazilian Starfish pod.

Thanks for stopping by, and here's to a successful 2015 for all! :cheers:
Ya,? Cool I guess but im only paying half ass attention to this ;)
No man that is a killer list you have and over 100 plants is not half ass. best of luck with the grow :cheers:

T-Bone FTW
your list isn't half-assed actually it's a good one.Your cat looks healthy and well-cared for....sometimes half-assed is as good as it's gonna get!Good luck on your 2015 grow.
Great List Skol Vikings.

Well, it's been a week and things are starting to happen. Some good, some not so good...

Choco hab was the first to pop and the rest are following along, but what I was surprised to see this morning when I lifted the domes off was a bunch of fricken GNATS! It's that burpee seed starting mix dammit. My grow room has been gnat-free for quite some time and I used new cell trays. All three trays have the little bastards so I know it's the mix. I had never seen it before and just picked it up at Menard's the day i started seeds. It's too bad because I really liked the consistency of it.
Unfortunately  that can happen with any soil mix. Can try watering with a diluted 3% hydrogen peroxide mix to kill the larvae. Do all the other gnat preventatives as well.. I had them poppin up before my seedlings did even. I will be hitting my cups with some peroxide here in a few days. I'v tried mosquito dunks in the past with no success. 
Things are coming along slowly but surely. I potted up March 10th and have 180 plants. I will be growing about 130 of them, and the rest are going to a friend. I turned the heat off in my grow room and raised the lights up in hopes of not having to pot up again before plant out. We will see.

I snapped a couple half-assed cell phone pics this morning...

The whole lot:

A couple of the nicer ones:

Thanks for stopping by! :)

I just noticed your glog now... can't believe I missed this!
I've got my eye on these four.  Not a lot of people are growing these and they should all be very interesting :fireball:
