Default planted a few hot pepper seeds

normally, i don't start peppers until mid march, but these were in a box of seeds
someone in the homeschooling community gave to me a couple years ago when
they gave up gardening on a big scale. the pepper seeds are from 2013, so i think
they are near the end of their shelf life. i mighta read that hot peppers are viable
longer, but am not for sure on that. soooooo, i am starting them now.
planted are


black hungarian
fish
grandpa's home
india jwala or indian finger
long purple cayenne
santa fe grande


i have never grown any of these peppers before.
i like a fair amount of heat, but am no means a pepper head or whatever
you call those folks that seek the hottest pepper in existence to eat. those
people are nuts.

no offense


i double sowed, and placed the seeds underneath our wood stove where it is nice,
and warm most of the time. we'll see what comes up. i have a few others to try in
the event some fail to come up.

Default The hots here in the glades.

Found out the best way to start.These are from Numex,and from the chili factory in Australia.do not want to advertise.The superhots need 80 plus for germination,hence the cling wrap.I soak in chamomile tea,otherwise might take a while.

Default

one indian finger, and one black hungarian are up. still some life in
the old seeds. it may take awhile before all is said and done. now, the

seeds are on the window sill during the day (cooler there), and underneath

the wood stove at night.
