I'd like to have some of the fancy hot pepper seeds everyone seems to talk about...
Does anyone have a few they could spare?
I'd be glad to swap some baccy seeds, if you like.
Tnx!

lol

Sounds great, Mad
I don't even know what tapin is! :-)
Are they pretty hot?
The deer just finished off the last of my peppers over the last few days.
They like tomato plants better, but peppers are a close second for them.
Bell peppers, arbol, jalapenos... they don't care. but they just eat the leaves, not the peppers.

I'll need to scrounge up some more chicken wire for next year. Ran out of it, this year.
Did you know they eat cantaloupe?
Take a bite out of em looks just like a horse bit an apple!

...and Palestine! Whew! That's just about as far out in the hills from DFW, Austin, or over to shreveport as you can get!
Man alive! Texas is big!
Been a long time since I was over there...

I can send you, later in the year once we fruit, some Butch Taylor Trinidad's and some Bhut Jolokia (ghost chilli seeds) and some birds eye, I have been improving the Birdseye for flavour for a decade, nice edible heat but a lot of fruit character in it. Great for pickling and freezing. Used a bit of baccum initially and crossed off from there, it looks like I have finally stabilised the strain. Still a Birdseye but has better fruitiness than what we started with.

Cheers.

I'll have some Traveler Jalapeno seed soon. I'll send you some if you remind me in about a month.

Deer eat damn near everything here too, but they never touched our tomato plants. I had several surplus plants growing at the ends of tobacco rows this year outside the usual fenced area. They never touched a plant all season. Instead, they waited for the tomatoes to start to ripen and then ate every last one of them in two nights, including the green ones. I had wondered if they would eat peppers or not. I'll just assume they will now and keep those fenced.

We have a lots of deer around here. We feed them all winter and have for many years. They aren't really afraid of us at all anymore, especially the does and fawns who grew up here. We get to know some of them so well we have named them. If there is snow on the ground, they get fed at dusk every day and they know it. They will be standing around waiting by the feed pan and staring at the house waiting for me to come out. lol Some of the youngsters have grown up to be some real trophy class bucks too and they still come back here in winter when finding food gets tough. They know there is always food here. I had one big beautiful buck I named 6 pack for the perfect 6x6 rack he had last year. He would stand in the driveway at 4 pm staring at the house and waiting for his grain. We had another we called Big 5. He had a 5x5 rack but had the biggest spread I have ever seen. And the base of his horns were as big around as my arm!

We really enjoy having the deer and all the other critters that live around here. We even had a big bull moose here for a few weeks this summer. It's like wild kingdom outside our door. It's great until planting time comes around. Then the war starts again and all the fences go back up.

Well, Ill be!

your deer eat ripe tomatoes!
Mine don't even touch the fruit, but will eat all the leaves, and start on the main stems of the plant.

We generally have smaller deer around here, and the bucks have smaller racks, though I did see a nice forkie a month ago, across the street, headed for our yard! lol they sure do like roses!

The virginia 117 is doing well, but the late start was not best for it.
Also, even that broken lattice fence seems to affect all the plants that grow along it.
Nothing grows real well, that is, large. Well, except the sunflower which our tallest.
I'll give it a fair chance, next yer, in better sun.

I've got some seeds RC! Only got like 2 left though, unless you want to wait a while until mine have grown and I get some more seed!

I'm unsure of the variety, they're only med-hot, big growing though. Will update with the variety when I get home tonight.

Hey Thanks, Sammy!

I should wait...
Probably not good to take on tons of coal to heat up the boilers and bring only two seeds all this way... :-)

Wait and see what happens when your crop comes in???

My growing season is quickly coming to an end here in Kalifornia...
Where are you at in your growing season there?

Best
