    [–] Fresh Heat from my Garden Uncle_Retardo 5 points ago in gardening

    Here is an album of them in my garden: https://imgur.com/a/xcuj6

    I plan to chop these up tonight and put them in some soup then at 3am I will rub my eyeballs in my sleep by mistake and then wake up and freak out.

    Thanks. I find the trick to growing spicy stuff is not to fuss too much, experiment and do things different however one thing I can affirm is that too much water will reduce the heat. I make sure my mature ripening plants are thirsty before I pick them.

    Album of my hot peppers growing in pots, this is in South Africa so it is still very warm here. Thanks for looking :-)

    [–] Best way to remove lawn to prep for a garden. Uncle_Retardo 1 points ago in gardening

    I use 1 to 3 gallon plastic bag pots and first fill them with half normal garden soil at the bottom of the bag pot and then potting soil to surround the rest of the root ball. I find they need very little water and they grow best when its hot but shady. I also mix potting soil with garden soil if I start to run out. I made an album of my potted peppers, check it out: https://imgur.com/gallery/xcuj6

    [–] Best way to remove lawn to prep for a garden. Uncle_Retardo 2 points ago in gardening

    I find my Habaneros grow way better in pots/plastic sacks rather than placing them directly into the ground. The root ball never gets big and I just dose them with some veggie fertilizer every month. Also, its a bonus to be able to move them around when there is extremely hot sun or hail.

    I love Gem Squash, the fruits are hardy but the leaves get hit bad by whitefly and powdery mildew. I make them into fritters and they are absolutely delicious.

    It looks like a Tromboncino. It's weird, in my street there are tomato, spinach, marogo (a South African wild spinach) mulberry and rosemary plants randomly growing on the pavements. They grow like weeds here. We had some pretty bad hail the other day, you can see the dents in the Tromboncino. Also somebody must have ate it because its not there anymore lol.

    [–] Why do we call traffic lights β€˜robots’? Uncle_Retardo 5 points ago in southafrica

    The cops used to control traffic at heavy flow intersections but with the introduction of traffic lights drivers coined the name Robot Police and hence it was just shortened to Robots.
