    Been awhile since I started seeds, when more than one sprout together I clip all but one right.

    I went ahead and clipped them, all my fataliis are up now and about half of the yellow jolokias but none of my chocolates are coming up yet.

    Chocolate Bhuts for some reason take longer and also have a lower germination rate. I would not clip anything until you get good leaf sets on them. Even then I have separated seedlings that have grown side by side and successfully transplanted them into larger pots.

    Yea they each had a couple leaf on em and about an inch tall when I thinned em out. Still no chocolate habs or jolokias but I’m patiently waiting. I wqnt them for chocolate bourbon mash but the fataliis are my favorite pepper.

    my wife thinks I’m weird for drinking beer in the shower, I try to explain that there is nothing better than an ice cold beer in a steaming hot shower but she isn’t a beer drinker though. I first discovered my love of drinking beer in the shower when I was living in the trailer (my first place when I moved out of my parent) back then I drank beer just about any place you could think to drink beer but nothing beat an ice cold beer in a steaming hot shower. if you have never tried it I recommend you do.

    sspeaking of beer, Buddha could you tell me the best way to ship a 6 pack of bottles?

    woo hoo! Bad Ass! Fold the carton flat and put it in the bottom of the box and wrap each bottle seperately in bubble wrap. I’ve shipped off several six packs of collectible commemerative Coke Bottles that way and never had one break. Sent em all over the US and a few over to England and France.

    Very carefully. Do what Hudd said. You got to wrap and protect every bottle and make sure they do not knock against each other and there is nothing against the edge of any side of the box. There should be not air pockets that would create movement once the parcel is packed. Any movement is a chance for a package to shift in travel and break. Make sure the box says fragile and you tell the clerk that it has liquid inside.

    I doubt it is legal to ship alcohol across state lines with out a permit.

    You want to ship beer, I got a guy, he goes by the name of Bandit. He can get the best beers delivered right thru Texarkana, in a short time. I could probably find him but last I heard he was held up drunk in a cheap motel. Maybe I can have the Snowman go and make him do some sit-ups for a day or two to whip him back into shape.

    Last I heard, ol’ “Bandit” Darville was on his way up to Boston to get some clam chowder, with some Texas sheriff in a topless squad car in hot pursuit of him… 😛

    Betty found a couple CaJohn sauces today I’ve never seen or heard of. The Green Light jalapeno sauce and The Red Light XXX Hot Sauce. Any one have any info on these?

    Haven’t made those since 2003. Red Light is the same as Liquid Stoopid and Green Light is the sauce before we put the extract in. The base is jalapeño. Good find for a collector, not many of either were produced.

    Cool! Betty found them in a little general merchandise store in Farmland, Indiana while out with some of the candle store girls yesterday.
