    I think Costco has nematodes online every spring, along with ladybugs and praying mantis.

    Really? I never would have imagined that. Especially considering that from what I recall is you have to keep nematodes refrigerated in their liquid sponge saturated medium vessel until you deploy them.

    Next time you see that on their website, feel free to fire me off a PM.

    Will do, I think they ship with ice pack, same goes for the ladybugs.

    @doobie,
    My boss has bought nematodes at CTC. Have you checked with them?

    Maybe they do. Last time I bought them was like ten years ago and the only places they seemed to be available at the time was at dedicated gardening/nursery type places. Sounds like they are more widely available now.

    So….I harvested my first Scotch Bonnet pepper. I let it sit for a couple of days, debating. They say that the smaller the pepper the hotter. I sliced it up today and popped about an eighth of it in my mouth….HOT….another eighth and Holy Spawn of Satan! OK, I almost broke the rule about too many punctuation marks there.

    To compare…..a Jalepeno pepper measures between 2,500 to 8,000 Scoville units. A Scotch Bonnet goes from 100,000 to 350,000. So, about 40 times hotter.

    I think I may be giving a lot of them away. I don’t mind a bit of spice and heat in food, but these things are evil.

    While I do enjoy a good hot pepper. Some of these new peppers have gotten just to darn hot. lol
    I think @DirtyWhiteBoy always has some good ones growing.

    Don’t forget, Scoville units is not a linear scale, it’s a logarithmic scale …. way more than 40 times hotter!

    I like Scotch Bonnets Close cousin Habanero. Just as HOT or even hotter, more of a fruity flavour than earthy flavour.
    I’ve only had a couple ripe Aji Limon’s so far.

    That looks like a nice little crop you picked there.
    Those small one would make nice oven baked crisps, sliced in half.

    Thanks Brian, I might use a handful for some hash browns or some mashed potatoes. the rest goes back in the ground for growing season #2 😀
    I started with 15 potatoes this year and got quite a nice return/yield.
    A bunch of plants are still growing, they just don’t wanna die off haha. That means they still enough energy to produce tubers/ potatoes.

    That looks like a nice little crop you picked there.

    That sounds like a great idea. I still have more potatoes in the fridge which I harvested couple weeks ago.
    Red thumbs, cherry reds, yukon golds and gemstones
    all waiting for growing season #2

    You are ready to go to Mars!

    well, only if I can take all my bosch tools with me to build a farm up there 😀

    I didn’t know that. After a certain amount of heat, it really doesn’t matter about the measurement. Mild,Tangy, Spicy, Hot, Dang Hot, and after that, it is irrelevant…..lol.

    I must have had a bit of the juice on my finger. A couple of hours later I had an itch near my eye, and when I rubbed it I could feel my eye start to burn. Went and washed my face and hands right away.

    Some of my grow, Have only picked a couple of Aji Limon and a couple red habs.

    Black Pearl is doing well in the front flower garden. Great ornamental.

    Bhut Jolokia, This from a ghost pepper in a can.

    So far the only flower on my Chocolate Scorpion

    Hot Portugal, this pepper is the largest I have in my yard that the critters have not touched.

    Aji Limon, Lots of pod showing, hope they get a chance to turn.

    Serrano’s, but the critters keep eating them.

    hehe That was priceless, it was a White Habanero, these things are slightly bigger than a bean.

    I am still waiting on some lemon drop but everything else is doing ok. I need to get more pots so i can pot up some from the garden to over winter. This plant is doing the best, though my hungarian wax are keeping me in eatable peppers.

    Not sure I am tempted to try some hot sauce with these, it will be my first attempt so who knows
