Pepper harvest 9-28-10

Okay, I know that the I.E. Totally Tomato Swap is still going on, but I just can't wait to get started with this swap again! Besides, I've been told by some folks that they'd like to get an early start, so that they can get their seeds back in time for this season's crop.

I am just started to push my limits on the heat level I can tolerate, and haven't gotten brave enough to try hababeros yet, so don't feel like you have to be a "hothead" to participate : )

So here are the rules (every swap's gotta have them):

* Sign ups will run through Monday, February 28th. Seeds must reach me by March 4th. I will do my very best to have them back out by March 11th.

* Seed packets should be labeled as commercial, or harvested/hand collected.

* Seed packets should have 12 - 15 seeds per packet.

* Limit of packets per variety = 3. If you send in more than 3 of a variety, the rest will be considered extras.
This will increase the variety in the swap. More variety sent in = more variety received back : ) If you have something very rare, or in high demand, contact me privately, and I may wave the 3 pack limit for that item.

*** Last year, I received tons of unnamed Bell peppers, Jalapenos, Cayennes, and Habaneros, and very few requests for any of those. Sooooo, here is a change from last year's rules. Only named varieties please, such as Biker Billy Jalapeno, TAM Jalapeno, Golden Cayenne, King of the North Bell, etc. Please write the variety name on the seed packet.

* Limit of total packs = 50

* Please put your GW name on the seed packet. This will ensure that you don't receive your own seeds back.

* Include a list of what you are sending in. This will also ensure that you don't receive the same thing you sent in.

* Please include a wishlist, or at least me know if you prefer Sweet/Mild, Hot, or a Mix, so that I can send you things you will enjoy, even if I don't have items specifically from your wishlist. You may also indicate if you prefer OP/Heirloom types, or Hybrids. I can't guarantee what you will get back, since it is dependent on what others send in, but I will do my best.

* Commercial seeds should have an expiration date of '10 or '11. If hand collected, they should have been harvested in '09 or '10.

* NO seed mixes please. Not a single person in last year's swap had a seed mix on their wishlist ... just sayin'.

* And last but not least, please include a return address label, and enough postage for the return trip.

I apologize if that sounds like a lot of rules, but this will keep the swap fair and fun for everyone.

Let me know if I've forgotten anything.

Your hostess,
Bonnie

"Seed packets should have 12 - 15 seeds per packet"

Does that mean we should split up bigger packets?


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Wow, we are off to a great start already!

Bigduff, all you have to do to sign up is post here that you would like to join. Then, I will email you my mailing address. However, I notice that you don't have your email address listed on your member page, so you will need to send me an email through my member page, and then I can reply with my mailing address. Hope that's not too confusing.

You are right that this is an awesome way to expand your pepper seed inventory. However many packets you send in, you will receive that many back, and hopefully they will be ones that are new to you. So say you send in 3 packs each of 5 different varieties, you will receive 15 different varieties back. Assuming that you still have some seeds left of the 5 varieties you sent in, you would then have 20 different types of peppers in your inventory. All for the cost of postage. Not a bad deal at all!!!

So here is the participant list so far:

farmergirl2009/Ellie
gjcore/Greg
austinnhanasmom/Deb
sorellina/Julianna (from Canada)
highalttransplant/Bonnie

Plus, a couple of maybes (through emails)...

PEPPER SEEDS! AHHHHH..............................I'm in!dd


 o
RE: Seed count

Greg, the 12 - 15 is meant as a minimum seed count, but you can certainly send in more per packet. Last year, I had a guy send in bulk seeds, and I divided them as needed, but if you want to separate them into individual packets that would certainly be helpful : )


 o

Hi, dirtdaddy! Glad to have you with us again!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Need any more EXTRA seeds to hand out as extras to people?

If so,tell me what you have left from last year and I'll see if I have different varieties this season.
Lots of dry pods laying around here for stuff some people might not have...
Let me know.

"Need any more EXTRA seeds to hand out as extras to people?"

I'll take extras :-)


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

send me an e mail.
This isn't the right place to set up a trade or whatever.

I often donate seeds to peoples round robins.

My seed collection (3000 +/- varieties,strains and Hybrids)for non bell peppers and probably has most stuff that will be offered in most of these type things so I often just donate seeds that can be put in as a supprise extra.

I like spreading the heat when I can.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie - thanks for hosting and please sign me up!

I agree it's a GREAT way to receive so many different seed varieties that aren't available on our local stores seed racks!

Hmmmm - now to get my seeds packed and out the door before the family realizes I'm swapping for more pepper seeds! Just kidding, they would think something's wrong with me for not wanting to swap/trade for different varieties to grow. John and both daughters enjoy sharing the harvest with their co-workers, friends, etc... We've challenged the heat tolerance of several friends that USED to brag that nothing was to hot - needless to say the Bhut Jolka's changed their tunes.

Thanks again for hosting,

Sandy


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I haven't forgotten about you & my friends at IE! I couldn't quite get my act together to participate in the Totally Tomatoes swap. I'm still lurking here!

I've been doing some "spring cleaning." LOL! DH & I will have been in our house for 11 years come April. It's too small to fit all the stuff in it that we have. It needs a good clean out. So every weekend I've been bringing stuff to the Rescue Mission. Our bathroom is finally functional again (remember I found a leak in our tub/plumbing back in November? Yes, it took this long to get it fixed.) So now I have to repaint where they ripped out the walls.

We're finally getting a little break in the weather this week. I'm only wearing one pair of socks and one sweater and no leggings under the jeans today! LOL!

Hope everyone is thinking warm summery thoughts!

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Good morning! We had crazy winds here last night, then rain, turning to sleet, which turned to snow. Didn't add up to much, but the streets are pretty slick.

I'm going to wintersow a bunch of lettuce, herbs, and perennials this morning. Need to get that out of the way, so I can start some peppers (indoors) next week : )

Which brings me to my next thought. What is on everyone's growlist so far? I'm sure changes will be made once the swap is over, but what peppers are you planning to grow, favorites that you can't live without, or new things you are excited about?

This is my list so far. As you can see, I'm still trying to finalize, and will probably add a couple, depending on what I receive from this swap.

My 2011 Growlist:
Pepper, Alma Paprika (a must have for homemade paprika)
Pepper, Ancho Gigantia (or College 64) (new for me)
Pepper, Ancho San Luis (new for me)
Pepper, Beaver Dam (variable heat)
Pepper, Big Red (Bell) or Franks's
Pepper, Black Hungarian (one of my new favorites from last year)
Pepper, Boldog Hungarian Paprika (third year to try. Have had germ. issues, and was given mislabeled seeds)
Pepper, Cascabella (consistent heat, very productive, cream to orange to red)
Pepper, Chinese Giant (bell)
Pepper, Fresno (new for me)
Pepper, Georgia Flame (new for me)
Pepper, Giant Szegedi (yel. Elong. Bell)(cat ate the sprouts last year)
Pepper, Gourmet (orange bell)(another kitty casualty last year!)
Pepper, Jalapeno (not sure which variety yet)
Pepper, Jimmy Nardello (new for me)
Pepper, Joe E. Parker (new for me)
Pepper, Lemon Drop or Aji Yellow (new for me)
Pepper, Pasilla Bajio (new for me)
Pepper, Patio Red Marconi (very productive, great flavor)
Pepper, Peppadew (hoping to try, don't actually have seeds yet)
Pepper, Sante Fe (new to me)
Pepper, Serrano (new to me)
Pepper, Soroksari (huge elong. bell, cream to orange red)
Pepper, Tollie's Sweet Italian (new to me)

This year's list has a lot more heat in it, than previous years. Hope I don't regret that, LOL!

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Hi everyone,
Mailed my seeds today (all hot) varieties. Bhut jolokia,red savina,cayenne,orange habeneros and some lemon drop for Bonnie to try. Like all hot peppeers, some took awhile to germinate. have some patience and it will pay off. Have fun. Oh ya, hope to get some "HOT" seeds back.

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Hey, I need to clarify one of the swap rules. I stated that there is no minimum to send in. Well, technically the minimum is ONE PACKET. I just received a bubble envelope that had a wishlist, but no seeds at all inside. I'm hoping maybe the sender accidently forgot to put them in before mailing. I have contacted them privately, so as not to embarrass them publicly, but thought I should mention it, just so no one else makes the same mistake : )

Depends what sprouts and what doesn't...room I have for pots etc.

When I first started growing chiles I couldn't decide which ones to grow...
So I decided to grow them all.
So many chiles,too little room to grow them in.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Hahaha! Way to make the rest of us look like amateurs!!!

Okay, so my first question would be, how big is your garden? I'm going to be pushing it just to grow 25 - 30 plants!

Then, my next question would be, how do you keep track of them all? I mean, I'm sure you probably have some sort of spreadsheet or something, but how do you keep them straight in the garden? Are the super hots separated from the milder ones? My brain hurts just thinking about growing that many, LOL!

Thanks for sharing : )


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

WOW, I bow to the Master! Do you know of a source for the Peppadew? I can't find it and have been looking for a while.

Patti


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

WOWWWWWWWWW Smokemaster!! That is seriously impressive!! Now, I just want to know, do you actually eat all these peppers or grow them to trade? I bet your pepper garden is amazing!!

I thought I was pretty cool with about 15 varieties! lol

Do you freeze them or can them?

signed,
Seriously Impressed! :D


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Smokemaster-hint...LOL
Smoke dry for rubs etc.
Whatever I don't eat fresh.

I only grow 1 plant of each variety in pots so it's not really as many pods as it seems it might be.

I'm addicted,don't sell Powders,Pods,seeds or sauces.

Pepadew is something I just traded for to grow this season.

Seeds were supposedly grabbed by a barefooted theif from a field in the dead of the night from a highly guarded commercial field in S.Africa...
The seeds I have though are from 2 sources,1 are pink(Commercially treated seeds) and the others are regular colored-both from S.African trades.

Most people I've talked to were dissapointed with it.

I guess it's all in the pickling / Brining process.

Nobody actually had anything good to say about them,fresh or the many pickling recipes on the net they tried.

A lot didn't like a lot of the commercially or Deli Pepadew peppers they tasted.
The ones that raved about their taste had a specific brand they liked or deli that made the pickled pepper.
No recipe I've run accross so far seems to get many good reviews.
In general it's a So So type of pepper.

Nothing special except to the few people that like them.

I think most of the stuff I've read is hype from people that used to eat them as a cultural dish-comfort food.

Kinda like grits in the south(now called Pilanta(SP?),in my book they are like eating that white paste in pre school.
Others love the stuff.

Only time I've liked grits is covered with gravey and bisquits or smothered with something so it tasted like , at least some kind of food.
Pillanta (solid grits)sucks up anything flavorfull you put in it-still tastes like a starch ball of paste if used in a more than 1% mix. LOL

If I want seeds I bring the plant inside until I see a pod or two.Tie a string around the stem and return it outside.
Next...
Not isolated but no pollinators either.
Works for me.
Until last year I used 3 Gal(#5) pots.A lot fit into a small area.
If you are growing a couple hundred pots of plants you only need a couple pods per plant to be set up with pods and seeds-if things don't go wrong like last year-Mites killed 99.9% of my garden,including 3-5 yr old Manzanos and a 12+yr old tree habanero.

No spread sheet etc.
I just put in those white lable plastic things.
After a short while you remember what is what.

I don't have a life,Live at work(14 hr a day shifts,7 days a week)grow peppers here on the lot around my building.
I do grow only a couple hundred varieties at a time.Not that hard to keep track of in general.

List looks big but when broken down to 4 parts it really isn't that many growing at the same time.

Last year in bigger pots-less varieties before the mites attacked and killed them all.

Here is a link that might be useful: one more

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Don't be sorry I LOVE hearing about it and seeing the pics

*smoked peppers = me drooling....* just sayin'! lol We just started learning about smoking meats and veggies, peppers, etc last Summer and I am SO addicted now!!!!

Your plants look very happy. That's a shame about the mites tho.. lil buggars.

Last year was my first year to try to grow peppers from seed and I failed miserably. Started them too early in WS containers outdoors in March.. they germinated well enough but with our up and down weather thru April it seemed to seriously stunt them for a few months after... They didn't start to actually grow til late August and then it started cooling down again. I got ONE lil bell pepper and ONE cayenne outta about 16 varieties I tried.. Pretty horrible results, so I'm doing it different this year. I really want those peppers to cook with and so I'll be seriously watching over them this year. Waiting til it's WARM enough and just start them outdoors then, better soil, different location in the yard, etc.

Hopefully by next season I can build up a grow light set up in the workshop and start them indoors that way. This year tho they're just gonna have to learn to be tough!

Grits, Polenta, Rice... all the same really in my book.. just a filler to put something even better tasting on top of! :)

Thanks for all the info Smokemaster! I am REALLY looking forward to peppers this season now! :)

~Wendy

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Smokemaster - Great list and pics! Sure wish I had a year round growing season instead of my short 4-5 months. I hear ya on not being able to decide what to grow. Besides stuffing way too many pepper plants in the garden, I've begun growing in 5 gal pots, large totes, etc. Last year I even added pots/containers up at the cabin. It's an addiction alright, but I figure it's one of the better addictions to have!

Sorry to hear about your mite attack last year. I can't imagine how heartbreaking it was.

Wishing everyone great success in their pepper adventures.

OH - my pepper packets are going to the PO today, so should make it west by mid-week forgoing any delay from the weather that's headed our way. They're predicting another foot or so of snow tomorrow (Sun) through Monday morning.

Sandy


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

OMG Smokemaster!!

I did notice that Peppadew was not on your list - should be.

I collected seed from Peppadew last season and will send some.

LOVE that list!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Peppadew-see Baccatum.
If you meant my list....

Might not have a garden this year,I was just told I can't grow stuff here this season/anymore...
Gotta find a new place I guess.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

You knew I couldn't resist. I'm in!

Smokemaster, your pictures always make me so jealous. My pots are under feet of snow right now. Every time I try and overwinter my peppers I get terrible aphids. I've tried a number of things to get rid of the aphids (showering the plants - literally; spraying them with Safer 3in 1; etc) but it always seems to hurt/ kill the plants too.

So sorry to hear about the mites. It must have been devasting to lose plants 3-12 years old.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Smokemaster - I am so sorry to hear that you've received notice that you cannot grow things at your residence any longer. My daughter got the same type of notice in mid-July last year, talk about a huge up roaring with the residences. End result was that they could have no more than 4 flower pots and only 2 pieces of lawn furniture on balconies/patios and nothing else. They never gave restrictions on pot size, so she now has 4 of the largest flower pots I had (12 gal+).

Wendy - Do you have a window you can grow some peppers in that will give you a head start?

Sandy

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Good evening, All! I was out of town yesterday, but I'm back, and glad to see you guys have been visiting : )

Smoke, I'm sorry to hear about your predicament. Hope you are able to work something out. I've rented a plot at a community garden the past couple years, which has allowed me to grow much more than I can on my small property.

Yippy, Becky's in!!! We have now exceeded last year's participation, and there's still over a week left to sign up.

Received a package this weekend from Dirtdaddy. Very impressed with the selection I'm receiving from everyone so far. Remember the better variety you send in, the better variety I am able to send you in return : )

So here is the current sign-up list. If I have received your envelope, there is a > by your name:

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Well, Romy, it might not be a long list, but there's a lot heat in there : )

Naturegirl, your list got kind of overshadowed by Smokemaster's list, but you've got some nice stuff on your list too! You asked about overwintering, I've tried the past two years, unsuccessfully, to overwinter pepper plants in the garage. Maybe this year, I'll bring one or two of my favorites indoors, to see if I have any better luck.

I got 15 different peppers planted today. Hoping to get the other half of my list planted over the next couple of weeks, but I ran out of germinating mix and containers.

Those of you that were in the swap last year may remember the sprout casualties I had from one of my kitties taking a liking to them. This year, I have a table set up in the guest room window, which is a room I keep closed off from the cats. Unfortunately, I don't have any grow lights, or a heat mat, so this is the best I can do. (Please pretend you don't see those Christmas decorations that are still outside, LOL)

Photobucket

Once they sprout, I'll remove the top half of the container.

I haven't checked the mail yet today, but I'll post later if I receive any packages.

Bonnie


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie, I sent my seeds today.

Patti


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Wow! I am overwhelmed by the number of packages received today!!! The mailman had to put them in the package compartment at the community mailbox : )

Hey, I have a favor to ask those that have not already mailed their packages yet. Please write HOT, MILD, or SWEET on the seed packets. It would help speed up the sorting. A brief description would be awesome too, as it would cut down on how much time is spent researching unfamiliar varieties.

So here is the current sign-up list. If I have received your envelope, there is a > by your name:

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Hi Bonnie,

I will be mailing my package on Saturday! You have received a great list of peppers.

Smokehouse - I loved your pics and I AM freaked out over your list - actually, I wish I could grow that many. But for me it is too many chiles - so little time. : )
Maybe some day....


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

No packages today, but I did make a spreadsheet with what I've received from everyone so far, as well as each person's wishlist or preferences. Even though it takes time to create, it saves time flipping through a couple dozen, sometimes barely legible lists. I just find it easier to sort on paper first. Then, when I go to fill the packages, it's like having a shopping list.

That's how I roll : )


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I'm also looking for garden space to lease! Need more room for chiles! dd


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Good to know I'm not the only spreadsheet freak around here. :) I put EVERYTHING on spreadsheets..lol, our menu, budget, savings plans, garden plans, seed lists, wintersowing lists, planting lists, house plans, to do lists, more to do lists, any ol' kind of lists... yea.. I *heart* my excel! :)


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Hahaha, you cracked me up with the I *heart* Excel! Well, I think you may have me beat, Wendy. I will admit to a wintersowing list, perennial plant list, and a seed inventory. I used one for the WLOMWL swap, and it helped alot, so I thought I would try it for this one too.

Haven't gotten brave enough to use any of the math features though ...


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

You are welcome, Bonnie. I hope you find something you can use.

BTW, all my varieties are hot. Well, the NuMex varieties are on the mild side of hot, but probably considered hot.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I'm too glad I'm not the only one that uses Excel to keep track of my seeds - sowing, trading, buying, etc.... I also use it daily at work for importing/exporting information into our HRIS system for reporting.

Midwest... - I agree that NuMex varieties are on the mild side of hot but some would say hot. If it were my oldest daughter rating them, she'd scream HOT and my other daughter would say they were mild. I guess it's all in the taste buds of the one eating them. We have a good time when I make salsa - we have to have taste testing sessions when I label the jars - wimpy, mild, mildly hot, hot, Kickass hot, etc.... One year I got home from work and my daughter, who at that time was 18, had relabeled the jars - XXXX Kickass Hot from what I earlier labeled HOT. She's the one that has liked Hot salsa since she was 2 - she ate a whole jar of XX hot when she was 2 and never had any side effects from it - couldn't beleive it.

Good Afternoon, Folks!

I received two packages in the mail today, and they both deserve an unofficial award:

Patti1957 - Sent in the maximum allowed (50 Packets), without a single duplicate! She receives the Stump the Hostess Award. That is going to be a real challange, as I'm not sure there are 50 types of peppers that she doesn't already have, LOL. I'd say the gauntlet has been throw down : )

Naturegirl1236 - Receives an award for The Smallest, Neatest Handwriting. I went to high school with a girl that could write like that. She used to make microscopic cheat sheets and pass them around the room on test days ... not that Jill would ever do a thing like that : )

Hi Ian! Welcome to the swap!!! Nice to see people from the RMG forum venturing out : ) You don't have your email address visible on your member page, so you will need to email me, so that I can send you my mailing address.

I have researched so many peppers today that I think my head is going to explode!!! And I thought I knew them all after hosting last year's swap, hahahaha! So many great seeds being sent in this year though.

Bonnie

re: fyi

Oh, thought I'd throw down a challenge for those of you that haven't sent your packages off yet. There are several requests for Trinidad Scorpion, and no one has sent any in yet. So if you've got some hidden away in your seedbox, it would be a great one to share.

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

ANOTHER FYI: I've been sorting (on paper) through the list of what has been sent in, and what is on everyone's wishlists. Several people have sent in Bell Peppers, BUT NOT A SINGLE PERSON HAS BELL PEPPERS ON THEIR WISHLIST. Is anyone willing to accept bell peppers back??? If not, those of you that haven't sent yet, might want to leave those out.

So here is the current sign up list, a > means I have received your package:

> farmergirl2009/Ellie
> gjcore/Greg
austinnhanasmom/Deb
> sorellina/Julianna (from Canada)
> dirtdaddy/David
> patti1957/Patti
> sandysgardens/Sandy
> cheveboy/Ken
teauteau
> tinley244
sassybutterfly_2008/Wendy
peaches0104
> romy6
randar08/Randy
candogal/Tricia
> gardenunusual/Tanya
carsons_mimi/Lynn
lisam627 ohio z6/Lisa
> midwestchilehead/John (Thanks for the hostess gifts!)
> naturegirl236/Jill
organicpepper_grower
booberry85/Becky
ianb co/Ian
> highalttransplant/Bonnie

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I like named bell peppers. I would think that if a person has sent a bell pepper in that they should be willing to receive them back. Are they all the same variety?


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

No, Patti, they are different varieties.

People tend to send in their favorites, of which they have lots of seed to share, and/or the things that they have received, but don't prefer. So some have sent in hot peppers, but want sweet back, and vice/versa. I'm not sure it would be fair to require people to accept the same types that they sent in, but if the remaining packages don't include any requests for Bell Peppers, than next year, I might leave them out of the swap. Well see what happens ...

I will make a note that you'll accept named bells.

Thanks!

I'll take any bells as extras and put them on my trade list or give them away for postage.

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie ~ I would love any red, orange or yellow bells. I would especially love the 'blushing' type but no one seems to have those to swap yet. I've got green bells coming out the wazoo tho. (sounds serious doesn't it? heh)

I'm finishing up my swap pkg today and will have it in the mail tomorrow.

This will be my first year attempting to can salsa. I've got to read up a bit more on the acidic necessities for safe canning but it's definitely on my to do list. Mmmmmmmmmm!

I'm getting my seeds together for the swap today. I find this chart really helpful for finding heat levels of peppers.

Here is a link that might be useful: Chilli World Scoville Units


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

My pkg will be going out in the mail tomorrow.

Smokemaster ~ I've had a great time researching all your peppers. Just. WOW. :)

Thanks!
Wendy

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

*** Sign ups end tomorrow! ***

Thanks for posting that chart, Becky! I've included a link at the bottom for one that I found the other day, while researching peppers : )

Wendy, if you're planning on canning salsa, a great recipe to start with, is Annie's Salsa, which you can find by doing a search on the Harvest Forum. My nieces and nephews can't get enough of that stuff!

I'm not sure what you mean when you say "blushing" type, but I grew this one last year:

Soroksari

It's Soroksari, and starts out cream and gradually turns orange/red. I like the flavor of them better than the green ones too. I'll make a note that you'll accept yellow, orange, or red bells.

Anyone else?

Here is a link that might be useful: Chile Heat Scale


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

'Blushing Beauty' Bell pepper was the one I was referring to but Soroksari is also on my wish list! :)

Is Annie's salsa also from the garden blog Annie's Kitchen Garden? If so, I've gotten to know her pretty well! She is a real sweetheart. :) I think I have actually saved that salsa recipe a year a so ago when I was first researching salsas. I'll definitely keep it in mind!

Thanks,
Wendy


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Hmmm ... I looked up that blog, but it doesn't sound like the same Annie. I could be wrong though ...

Here's the recipe:

ANNIE'S SALSA

8 cups tomatoes, peeled, chopped and drained
2 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper
3 - 5 chopped jalapenos
6 cloves minced garlic
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp pepper
1/8 cup canning salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup vinegar
16 oz. tomato sauce
16 oz tomato paste

Mix all ingredients, bring to a boil, boil 10 minutes. Pour into hot jars, process in BWB for 10 minutes.

Makes 6 pints (actually I usually end up with 7)

I use half lime juice and half cider vinegar, but keep the total quantity 1 cup.

Also, you can alter the ratio of hot peppers to bell peppers, as long as the total volume remains the same.

The only other alteration I make, is that I add a little of my homemade paprika. Dried herbs and spices don't alter the acidity significantly, but fresh ones will, so I feel safe adding it.

I made two batches this fall, and I'm down to my last 2 jars : (

Come on summer!!!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Oh mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Even at 6am that sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing it. That sounds like a keeper!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie - I believe I noted in my email a week or so ago that I would take bells. Nice pic of the Soroksari bell pepper. I grew it last year too and liked it.

Sandy


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bells are fine with me as well. :)


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Thank you to everyone that responded! I've made a note of those who are willing to accept bells. Don't worry though, I won't send you more than one, or two at the most.

No packages in the mail today. Hopefully, everyone's envelope will arrive by Friday.

I did sow a few more peppers today:

Chimayo
Jimmy Nardello
Lemon Drop
NuMex Espanola Imp. (thanks to Midwestchilehead)
NuMex Pinata (thanks to Midwestchilehead)
Sandia

All of these are new for me. Now, all I need to do is drink more water, so I can use the empty bottles to plant more peppers : )

Oh, BTW, has anyone ever heard of a chile pepper called 'Mexicali'? I received this in another swap I was in, don't know who it's from, and all that a search pulls up is a bunch of recipe websites.

Bonnie


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie, I'll take a pack of two of bells. I've never had much luck growing them, so I guess I need the practice.

No help on the Mexicali. Sorry.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Received two packages today. Great selection, Randy!!! I can see I've got more research to do, as you managed to send in some things that I have never heard of. Your wishlist is a tough one, but I will do my best : )

 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Off Topic but Bonnie was thinking my post here with my growout list was my problem.
IT ISN'T!
It's just that time of year.

I got angry a couple nights ago about getting a ton of requests for rare or super hots from leaches using google to shamelessly demand seeds from me.
I posted on the pepper/chile forum about it.

NOBODY HERE HAS DONE ANYTHING TO RUB ME WRONG.

A few people offeed trades or asked about stuff on my grow list.
They aren't the ones that I got upset about.
only a couple requests for the trades refered to this link/post whatever.
None were for a gazillion seeds of any 1 variety.

I think the quest for rare and Super Hots is the reason these guys are shamelessly looking for free seeds.
A lot of people lately are wanting me to send them seeds for stuff that took me years to get seeds for and grow out succesesfully.
They don't want to trade,(want me to send them seeds period) and want to plant 1-40 acres of plants expecting me to send them free seeds.
Some don't want to take my reply of "I'm low or out of" seeds as my reply.
I will not give anyone seeds for a commercial venture.

I like spreading the heat but not setting someone up with enough seeds that they can rip off people at $1.00 a seed +s+h.
Some of the stuff I have was several years of searching to get pure seeds.
I buy a lot of seeds from seed venders(Peppermania and Rainbowchile seeds are the best in my opinion) for germination and selection not to mention they are VERY cool people.
I go through withdrawals if I'm not either getting trades or waiting for seeds to come in that I baught.
I do look forward to hearing about some Chile Impared person I sent an SASBE to having a good grow/season.

Addicts (me) like creating new addicts-a lot of time I find new stuff from people I sent an SASBE to.
In case I made people who read my post afraid to ask for a trade,it's not you guys.
If there is something you have that is not on my list or not a Bell or really common pepper ask away.
I might be low on whatever variety you are offering.
Like I said,I was really pissed off about the 10-15 requests for FREE seeds at basically my expense that I got that day.
I love trading and spreading the heat when I can.
I just don't like being used,it ruins it for me.
Since my post several people I've sent SASBE's to have sent me E mails telling me about their gardens that they grew stuff I sent them.
It's really cool when people do that.
Makes me feel like I spread the heat and gave some people a taste of a pepper variety they might not have been exposed to if I didn't send them the seed.
Peppers have such a difference in taste and heat betwen varieties along with the difference in different varieties growing better in different growing conditions.A lot of the SASBE's I do give people an idea of what they can grow easier in their garden and the taste they might prefere.
I love this stuff,spreading the heat.
I'm also starting to get into crosses but the problem with them is once you use up the original seeds , if it's not stable that pepper is history.
Anyway you guys aren't who my posts on the Pepper forum is about.
The few people I've received E mails from that were from here aren't what I got upset about.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Well that's a relief, Smoke! I was feeling like the instigator for asking what everyone was growing this year. I'm still trying to decide which, of the varieties you sent in, I'm brave enough to grow this year : )

Received a really awesome package from Lisa today. Thank you so much for the extra goodies!!! I think you get the prize for the biggest bubble envelope I've ever received in a swap, LOL. What a great variety you sent in too! There are several in there that I need to look up, but I'm going to have to be careful. Yesterday, I was researching peppers, and went to a site that put some nasty malware on my computer. I'm so thankful that my better half is computer savvy, or I would have been in a bind trying to finish the swap without a working computer.

Hi Bonnie,

I just checked the DC# 0303 1910 0001 4151 5882. Apparently my package is floating around Denver. At least it made it to the right state. It should get to you soon.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I have 3 fatali babies( they are 2 inches tall and have not grown much in two weeks,1 numex 4-6, 1 fatali, and lots more waiting to bust out. I have been trying to germinate some ghost peppers for over a month . I have heard sometimes they can take up to 12 weeks to germinate. Patience young gardner.I managed to over winter 5 red habs,1 naga jolakia, 4 jalapenos, 1 chinese 5 color, 1 red savina,and 1 orange hab. Just moved them to 5 gallon pots.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I bleached my pepper seeds prior to the paper towel germination method. Then, I checked them multiple times a day. A few sprouted here and there. THEN, I forgot about them (on accident) for nearly a week! Every variety has germinated, with 8 days. CRAZY to me!

WEAR gloves:
wrap the seeds into a tea bag type fashion - I used cheesecloth but I bet there's a better material
1/4c bleach to 1c sterilized/cooled water
swirl for 10 minutes

rinse for a minute in sterile water
repeat the rinse six times

Although a huge time commitment for a decent number of varieties, so worth it to me. Awesome germination this year, using this method. And I successfully germinated varieties that last year failed on me.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

What exactly is the purpose of swirling them in the bleach bath? I've never heard of that before. If it helps germination tho I will definitely try it!

Did you get my email with the list?

Gnite!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I heard from a GREAT source that it kills fungus. I have found, in the past, that some pepper seeds succumb to fungus before they can sprout, in paper towels.

Perhaps the bleach also removes a membrane. Although I didn't see anything in the bleach glass, stubborn varieties sprout sooner with this method. Seen it with my own eyes this year.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Well, whatd'ya know! I'll give it a try then. Thanks for the tip.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I received two more packages today. I have not heard back from teauteau or candogal, so as soon as Lynn's, and Ben's packages arrive, I will finish sorting, and start sending them back out.

My modem is starting to go out, which is causing me to lose my internet connection every couple of minutes, so if I'm not on here much the next few days, it doesn't mean I ran off with all of your wonderful seeds, LOL. Know that I'll be working hard on everyone's packages.

 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

So here's an update on the swap:

Yesterday, I finished the sorting on paper. Today, I'm trying to actually fill the envelopes. It's much slower going than I thought, mainly because my stuff, and some of the extras that were sent in, are all in bulk, so I'm having to divide them up into individual packets as I go. Would have done it ahead of time, but until all the envelopes were here, I wasn't sure how many of each thing I needed.

Once I get all of the envelopes filled (right now only 4 are complete), I will post a list of the leftover items, things I received a lot of, that weren't on anyone's wishlist. You can then post if you are interested in any of the items, and I will add them to your envelope, unless it is an item that is already in there. If you are not interested in any of the leftover items, please post that as well, so I can get your envelope in the mail.

I did end up placing a couple of small orders, since some people didn't have much sent in that was on their wishlist, and there were a few items that I received multiple requests for, that no one sent in. If you have wishlist items that are part of that order, I will be emailing you to let you know. The orders were placed first thing yesterday morning, so I'm hoping they will be in by the end of the week.

Okay, back to work for me ...


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

So I have 11 envelopes completed now, and am planning on working on them a bit more this evening, but swap stuff will be on hold tomorrow. If I don't make a grocery run, I may have a mutiny on my hands, LOL! My goal is to get them completed by Friday, so check back then for the leftovers list.

Bonnie


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

We need more people like you( Bonnie) . You are awesome!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Awwwww, thanks Romy!

I AM FINISHED!!! Not a moment too soon either. My kids are out of clean clothes, the house is filthy, and my husband doesn't even want to hear the word seed anymore!

Before I post the Leftovers List, I wanted to be sure that everyone knows that just because an item's on this list, doesn't make it undesirable, it may just mean that everyone already has it, so lots of that item was sent in.

There are some items on this list though, that were leftover last year as well. These items include:

Cayennes
Jalapenos
Habaneros
Cherry peppers

These items will be considered extras next time around.

Once you've looked over the list, please post here to let me know if you are interested in anything, and I will add it to your package, if it's not already in there. If your are not interested in any of the items, please let me know, so that I can put your package in the mail.

Please do not email me and ask me to send you all of the leftovers, so that you can put them on your trade list. That would not be fair to the other people in the swap.

Okay, here goes:

2011 I.E. Annual Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Leftovers List

Ancho - 2

Anaheim - 4

Bhut Jolokia - 5

Black Pearl - 6

Cascabella - 3

Cayanne, Slim Red - 1

CHERRY PEPPERS
Cherry Bomb - 1
(Red) Hot Cherry - 6
Sweet Cherry - 2

Chile Tepin - 1

Chile Verde Hybrid - 1

Cubanelle - 2

These were sent as extras and are not full packets:
Datil - 6 seeds
Earbob - 3 seeds
Kashmiri - 6 seeds

Fresno - 2 (if you didn't send this one in, it's probably already in your package)

Fuego F1 (hot) - 2

Ghost - 1

Grand Bell Pepper Mix - 3

HABANEROS
Brown - 2
Orange - 8
Red - 2
White - 5
Yellow - 1

Quadrato Rosso D'Asti - 2
Quadrato Giallo D'Asti - 1

Red Savina - 3

Sweet Chocolate - 2

Serrano - 1 (yep, this is another one that is probably in your package)

Tollie's - 1 (I show this as a sweet pepper, but the sender wrote medium heat on the packet)

Volcano - 2

Yolo Wonder Bell - 2

If you're thinking that this seeds like an awefully long list, be assured that everyone is getting back at least as much as they sent in.

Okay, one more thing. I bagged up over 70 packets of seeds from the donation that Smokemaster sent in!. Just about everyone in the swap is receiving at least one item from him, unless you specified that you only wanted sweet peppers, as all of his have some level of heat. I know that he would appreciate hearing a thank you from those of you that receive packets with his name on them.

He also sent in 4 peppers that don't have an official name, just a couple letters with some numbers behind them. I didn't feel right sending those to anyone without first asking if they felt up for a game of "Pepper Russian Roulette." My searches didn't pull up anything, but I'm guessing they are all at least medium in heat. Here they are:

TC 07246
C04548
PI 260250
PI 438638

I'll be checking this thread throughout the weekend, and will start mailing packages out Monday.

Bonnie

Hi Guys! I was finally able to get outside for a little while today, and do a little garden cleanup in the perennial beds. A little windy, but pleasant otherwise. Also, resowed a couple of peppers that were taking too long to sprout. Overall, a good day : )

Cheveboy - I added Chocolate Mini Bell, Naga Morich, and Volcano to your package.

A Smokemaster mystery pepper : )

Okay, John, I'll add that to your package.

RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie, I am amazed at how well you have organized this swap. Most grateful for the passion and time you have spent to make this such a success. I wanted to donate what I have left on my grow list, but most of them were received in trade, not ever growing them before I couldn't guarantee their authenticity.

For leftovers if there are any, I might like to try some hots that you might think would grow well in zone 5. Naga Morich if it's still available, Bhut Joloka, Cascabella, or mystery Smokemaster pepper.

@Smokemaster - if you ever move to NH, you will always have a place in my garden. I am so sorry you are unable to grow peppers where you live. You are so inspiring. My questions to you are, do you have a favorite pepper? After trying so many, do they all taste the same? What is the most peculiar pepper you have ever grown or tasted? And thank you for listing your favorite sources.

Last year I tried growing hots for the first time - EPIC FAIL. I did expandable peat pots. This year I am germinating in paper towels and baggies, and have had if I could guess 85% germination rate. I then transferred them to a high quality potting mix.

This year's grow list so far is:

Hot firecracker chile
hot banana
long red slim chile
cayenne pepper blend
my friend Joe's surprise seeds
Pepper Joe's surprise seeds
numex big Jim
bishop's crown
hot Jamaican
alma paprika
ordono multicolored
grand bell mix sweet
crimson torpedo
Gam mi pepper (hybrid)
small red hot pepper

What is most interesting to me is the peppers I thought would be easiest to grow have been the hardest to germinate. I hope myself and the others I am sharing these plants with will be able to see them come to fruition.

Tanya


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I don't really have a favorite.
I use most of my peppers dry as powders for rubs.
I do use a LOT of Cascabel,Chile De Arbol,New Mex. Chile,California chile,Guajillo,Japone,Puya and Chile Negro in my rubs as a base for super hots.
I really like Cascabel and chile negro together with different others for rubs.

I mix the base and add whatever to it.

An example would be cascabel,chile negro as the base then add habanero or whatever,Mexican oregano,cumin and maybe some Mexican cinamin(not the same as the ground cinamin in the spice bottles),clove or whatever taste I'm looking for at the time.
Depends what I'm smoking-Poultry,fish or beef...
I pretty much don't add salt to my rubs anymore.
If I do I use sea salt.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Bonnie,

If any are left, the following would be good:

Black Pearl
Volcano
Quadrato Rosso D'Asti
PI260250 or PI438638

This swap just keeps getting better!

Randy


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Good Morning, Everyone!

Smoke, thank you for the photos and info on those peppers. I hope you don't think I was trying to discourage anyone from trying them, I just felt bad that I couldn't give them any information on them. Wouldn't it be neat if we could name one of the peppers Smoke's Mystery Pepper, or Smoke's Russian Roulette Pepper? You would be famous : )

BTW, do you grow your own Mexican Oregano, or buy the dried leaves somewhere. I have a perennial herb bed, and grow lots of annual herbs in pots, but haven't tried to grow that one yet. I do know that my dried herbs taste waaaay fresher than what you can buy at the grocery store. My husband bought a smoker a year or two ago, but I hadn't really given any thought to making my own dry rubs before. He can't tolerate much heat, but maybe I can come up with a blend that incorporates some milder peppers as well. Thank you for the inspiration!!!

Thank you, Tanya and Randy, for the kind words! Even though the swap has been kind of time consuming, I have learned so much from all of you pepper enthusiasts, and have been able to try a few new varieties, so I think it has totally been worth it. I hope you guys will feel that way too, when you get your packages back.

Tanya - The Naga Morich is gone, but I've added the following to your package:
Bhut Jolokia
Cascabella
A Smokemaster mystery pepper

Randy - The Volcano is gone, but I've added the following to your package:
Black Pearl
Quadrato Rosso D'Asti
PI 260250
PI 438638

I'll check back later today. I've got to run to the post office to drop off the first batch of packages.

Bonnie


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

The first batch is on its way!!! Deb's, Tanya's, and Romy6's are now ready to be mailed as well. Also, both seed orders came in today. I need to divide the packets up among the folks that requested those items, and then I can get the rest of the packages in the mail.

Which brings me to a bit of a dilemma. I've gone through all of my 1" x 3" plastic seed baggies, and am using 3" x 4" baggies now, but they are almost gone too. My local Walmart is out of both of those sizes, which means I may have to resort to sandwich bags for these last few items. I've also had to resort to cutting 1" x 3" labels into smaller ones to stretch those as well. This is the price I pay for living in a small town, I guess. Next time, I will make sure I stock up before the swap starts!


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

This is exciting!

I can't wait to try growing these!

Now, where to put the plants I've started....


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Smoked sweet Paprika,Pimento...
Who said smoked pepper powder had to be spicey hot.

The TC7246 and PI438638 were VERY good producers,even in pots.
The TC07246 is very tastey with a quick hot burst of heat that didn't last long.Very nice flavor.
It's just now showing up on some seed venders sales lists.
Don't know if it has a common name.
The PI438638 is nice too,not as hot.


 o
smoked pods

Had to accidently do some work,yup,I'm at work now.5pm-7:30am.

Just dry some pods in the smoker at a real low temp.
Don't grind them all up.Freeze or store some whole.
Great in chunks added to chile,stew and soups.
Add some flakes to some cream cheese for a spread or dip.
Tons of stuff you can use smoked pods for.
Also don't dry all the pods.Freeze some that you just smoke / cooked-not dry for making homemade sausages.(ground pork,beef or both mix it with pod chunks,smoked garlic,smoked onion or whatever).

I only grow non bell peppers,nothing else.
No weeds,Uh I mean other vegies or flowers...LOL

I get the Mexican Oregano for cheep here in Ca.
It's mostly the buds.When you crush it it really smells good.
I also heat up all my spices before I grind them.
I don't buy cumin in powder form.Seeds grind quick and stay fresh a long time.

While you are smoking the pods do some garlic,onions and tomato quarters too.

Stuff some of all of the above in a jar and top it off with olive oil and stick it in the fridge for however long you can stand to wait.
Chop up the oiled vegies and use for omlets,salads or whatever floats your boat.
Cook with the spiced oil.
Great stuff.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

Wow, so many great ideas!!! Guess that's why your the master : )

I've been making my own paprika for the past three years, using Alma Paprika peppers, but I've just been dehydrating and grinding, haven't tried smoking them yet. It's pretty awesome stuff, even without smoking them.

This summer, I roasted quite a few peppers in the oven, and then froze them. I've been using them in pasta dishes, and soups all winter. So when I roasted them, the skins bubble up and turn black or dark brown, and I know they are done. When you smoke them, how do you know when they are ready?

The thing I used my peppers for the most last year though, was canning - salsa, pasta sauce, and jalapeno jelly. My kids can plow through a jar of salsa in one sitting, and I think I ate English muffins with cream cheese and jalapeno jelly every morning for close to two months, just couldn't get enough of the stuff.

I'm getting hungry just thinking about it ...


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

They are done when they taste good to you.
If they aren't dry enough you can dry them the rest of the way in a dehydrator or oven or just air dry them.
A lot of people smoke them hot for a couple hours and dehydrate them after that.

Go easy on the wood chunks at first.
Especially with Mesquite.Stronger tasting woods.
The smoke gets stronger as they age.
I like Hickory and oak.But use different woods when I get them.
You don't need the smoker putting out smoke the whole time.
I have wood fueled smokers now but used to have others-electric,gas,water smokers.
All have their place but I like it slow and low(heat).
All I'll ever use is wood from now on.


 o
RE: NEW: 2nd Annual I.E. Pick-A-Peck of Peppers Swap

I hate to wish summer away, but the more SM and Bonie talk about smoking peppers I can't wait to try it with peppers from this years harvest. I've dehydrated and ground different chilies and a few habs into powders but haven't smoked any yet.

Mike - any recomendations on a wood smoker? Also, my neighbors wondering if he would be able to use his weber to smoke any?

Bonnie - I canned pepper jelly last year too. My favorite is to mix it with cream cheese and use on crackers while sitting outside at night on the patio or just any ole time! We also plow though salsa like there's no tomorrow. We go through 6-7 doz jars easily fall/winter/spring. Come summer we need to ration ourselves until time to can again or make garden fresh.
