SKULLBIKER'S "Whats old is new for 22 glog"

I've put this off long enough and now it's time to start "gloging".
On January 1,2022 I picked the Brainstrains again.

1423 grams this time.

And that means two more 1 1/2 pint jars for the freezer.

And they're still alive and producing.

Too bad those babies aren't edible 😖 🤢 🤮

OTOH they would be a great protein source.
Maybe @skullbiker will experiment with them
for his FLOG!

After a little research, they are already used for animal feed! 😵‍💫

Ahhh... those are what we call a "colibrievlinder" (hummingbird butterfly)! They are rare here... maybe for the best 🙂

Picked a few this morning. Billy Bombs/Cherry Bombs, Numex Orange Spice & Jalapeno Orange, (3)Rio Haullaga Rocoto, and a pile of PeppaPeach.

Still getting some striped ones and now there are a few plain darker colored ones(same color as the stripe). I will have to do another taste test comparison with these.

The first of the Big Bertha Bell Peppers, Zapotec Jalapenos(heavy corking), and ripe red ones off of the Purple Jalapeno.

Unfortunately that link is riddled with inaccurate information. There are hundreds of species of "Hawk Moths" around the world. They are also known as Sphinx Moths and Hummingbird Moths (although only one species officially has that common name). Of the several dozen species that live in the USA, only two species have larvae that eat tomatoes, peppers, tobacco, datura, and eggplant. The Carolina Sphinx (Manduca sexta) is the most common, and the other is the Five-spotted Hawkmoth (Manduca quinquemaculata). The other dozens of species feed less destructively on other plants and trees....none of the species eat corn.

There are some Sphinx Moths in the east side
of Oregon. I have seen the moths mostly feed-
ing on Russian Thistles. Haven't seen any over
here on the west side. When I first saw them, I
thought they were hummingbirds until I got a
closer look.

Great info, @Indiana_Jesse 👍
