Growing local

Bought hickory sawdust for my hot smoker

I was just at BCF and bought some hickory sawdust for my hot smoker for $7. I plan on smoking some meat, but the exciting thing is that I'm going to grow some chillies and smoke those to make chipotle. :-)


Another family member accidentally put Lissa's chillies in the vegetable crisper not knowing I wanted to grow them. Has this now destroyed the ability to use the seeds?

Always more chillis where they came from Daniel :)

I often grow things from seed which has been in the fridge. Nothing to lose by trying.

The crisper will be OK, just not the freezer. Seeds are best kept in refrigeration anyway so no harm done. Just remove them from the fruit, dry the seeds in the air before you package them.
