Decisions, decisions

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

We've had a good thaw here in Salt Lake, temps around 45 - 50F, rain instead of snow.  All the accumulated snow and ice is out of the yard.  And with the resurrection of the old boonie pepper thread, I guess it is time for me to start planning what will go into the garden, and when.

Might I suggest Aji Amarillo?

 

It's a uniquely flavoursome and prolific yellow chile that will produce an impressive yield in a hot climate.

 

It's commonly used in South American recipes, but I've found it a fine addition to a wide variety of dishes, sauces and salsa.

 

There's a bit on it here: http://www.thechileman.org/results.php?chile=1&find=aji&heat=Any&origin=Any&genus=Any

 

along with a host of other relatively obscure chiles.

 

Decisions, decisions.

Will certainly consider it, sounds like a good one.

4 foot drifts in the yard but I am in garden mode myself. Searching for a good sweet corn variety that is heirloom and will be good for grinding to cornmeal.  Only planting heirlooms this year so I can save seeds. With the west coast drought fresh veg prices are going to go through the roof so going to need a bigger garden this year.

The old varieties are good, but not a lot of choice.  Yes, you will need to save seeds for the price you are going to pay for the seeds too.  They will charge you for a bushel and you get a couple hundred seeds. I have almost stopped gardening, just a very small one and some tomato plants on the patio.  Hope you thaw out in time to get them in and send me a piece of cornbread when you get it made :thumb:

The mud is pretty amazing right now in Salt Lake. But 4 feet of new snow in the mountains!--means you can water your garden this year.

At my fathers farm, they seem to be planting a sh*t load of stuff. 

Here in Brazil it has been sunny all month , no rain for 3 weeks , and today we had a few drops come down for an hour, but unless it rains for a good 4-24 hours it will most likely be above 30 degrees C tomorrow. 

 

Anyway dad seems to be planting limes, avocado we already got, plum, pears, mangos, tomatoes, raspberries, papaya, and macadamias. 

Then we have beens a few acres on another territory along with coffee and potatoes. 

 

heres some pics of the farm :

I have a friend that owns a CSA, she will supply me with seeds for free and all she grows are heirloom organics.
