WarrantMan said:PPATB shout out to my Yankee brother hailing from the chilly climes of MN! I was blessed to receive two jars of his highly coveted Chokecherry Rocoto Rojo jelly, a jar of Rocoto Rojo jelly AND in most excellent condition - a prized political ribbon/button from Tammany Hall that will find a proud spot in my collection! I am at a loss to find words that properly convey my gratitude.
Cheers and thank you Stettoman!
Yes! That! That variety right there...! THAT'S the one I'd like to see shine in a sauce!!!WarrantMan said:I've got some Scotch Bonnet/ 7 pot Jonah going........ c/o Bhuter

.....look at all of the generosity!!!
GIP sent us this fantastic box with a fantastic homemade jelly of his. His lovely wife baked us blueberry + GIP's Aji Confetti flakes. An I got replenished on my Gettin'-down-there powders...! His Sweet heat tastes just like the bbq you'd find on bbq potato chips.
Together with the over-the-top generosity of Stettoman, My gf Tonie & I had a fabulous light(er) breakfast of toast, one piece with pb and one piece without peanut butter.
The front jelly is GIP's and so are these...
From Stettoman: Check out the amount of the plain ChokeCherry...!
We then get this from WarrantMan!!!
The only badge that I like to see...
Somebody generously donated a brand new long sleeved College of Charleston shirt. Very nice!!!
Here's the booty!!!!!
Here's that awesome shirt...(I guess it's in the collage )
Thank you all VERY much Andrew, Eric, and Reggie!!!!
Scholars.....all of 'em...
And fresh they were!!! If those vanishing-act muffins were still around, I'm sure they'd be fresher than we think....but they don't seem to hang around. :gone:Guatemalan Insanity Pepper said:I'm glad you and the GF enjoyed them, Bhuter.
my apologies that there were only 5 instead of 6 of the muffins
(i swear it wasn't because i couldn't help myself and ate to many )
Wife insisted that she couldn't get another one in there without squishing them
and she/we wanted to keep them not only from getting squished, but FRESH still after the 3 day travel through the mail.
I'm glad your both enjoying the pow and rubs too
Ha ha no, go ahead and keep the canning jars, I got plentyBhuter said:And fresh they were!!! If those vanishing-act muffins were still around, I'm sure they'd be fresher than we think....but they don't seem to hang around. :gone:
Do you want your nice container and jars back afterwards?
I am sorry and I regretfully have to inform you that ive had zero success germinating 8 seeds from the VSRP offering... Thank you, PollenNut for allowing me to take part in your experiment...PollenNut said:Those are some beautiful flowers indeed. Being new to this group, I don't know if you hybridize or not, but I would toss some of that pollen on some of your C. baccatum and keep my fingers crossed... mainly because I think the flowers are just as impressive as the fruit on some of these plants and that kind of thing excites me. Rich is one cool cat and I'm happy to have been able to interact with him just a bit.
For those of you that don't know me, I love flowers as much as the fruit and the foliage as well.... so many of my crosses have variegated genes, purple flower, pink flower, green throat, etc. type genetics. It is a lottery as to what you will get with these seeds, but I can tell you Pepper Guru has already hit a few winning lottery tickets with some seedlings showing variegation already from his own line of F1 plants I sent him last season.
It is an honor to be a part of a group sharing seeds, plants, etc. Thanks for the warm mention Bookers.
