Welcome to the forum Adam.. Don't let Marc intimidate you.. Just remember the ladies like me best. I am another lover of hot peppers.
That's quite an ambitious list you have for your garden. I do hope you know if you are going to seed save your heirlooms you will have to select blossoms to isolate and hand fertilize to keep them from hybridizing with the other varieties you are growing. It's an interesting project.

Interesting. I didn't know this, But I'm dumb so I have an excuse. Will look into this and then pick your brain.

I did notice one typo and corrected it .. but it wasn't about your choice in females..I don't know about any transgendered on the forum. You must be privy to info I'm not ; but I wouldn't be surprised the ladies of all persuasions like me best.

Don't believe him Adam. He runs an illegal fish tank operation with an illegal power-bar.
Dave is a criminal.

ROFL!!

Well... I can tell you that the day I received the pepper seeds I potted them up downstairs right away. I only had about a half dozen of each variety. I considered putting gloves on to handle since I know that the seeds have a lot of the plant's heat, right? I thought, meh, it's not even 20 little seeds. I finished up, went upstairs for the night did a few things before bed. I know that I washed my hands at least twice before bed but I was lying there in the dark and I kinda rubbed my nose a lil... WHOOOOSH!! All kinds of awesome heat filled the front of my face and there I am laying in the dark with a big silly grin thinking to myself "Whoa." :lol:

As for the capsaicin tales I too have a bad one from a few years ago lol, out drinking with friends one night and we all tried a big plate of atomic wings from somewhere. I went to take a leak, got back to the table and a few minutes later (I'm sure the beer had numbed a whole lot of my senses haha) I start to feel some tickling in my pants? Cool!! Haha, no wait... thats kinda more of a burning, NOT cool!! Oh my god, the pain, I ended up on the floor with tears pouring out of my face like a little baby. So ya, now I know that even if your hands look clean you're not necessarily in the clear and you don't want to mess with your junk lol.

As for seed saving, I would love to learn more I'm trying to do as much reading as I can. I do know that I'm trying a hell of a lot of different varieties here in my yard so automatically that makes life difficult. As I understand it most of the self-pollinators like tomatoes & beans etc should be reasonably safe from cross pollination? It's the things like squash and brassicas that will get sexy with each other? I know that these hot peppers are typically seperated by huge distances by serious growers but to be totally honest they're more of an experiment so far, if I end up cross pollinating them I'm not gonna lose a lot of sleep since I'm not a going for competition heat or anything. In fact I've had only marginal success with peppers overall so we'll see if I even get fruit.

I can separate a few things in the garden by as much as 75' or so. I'll be sure to break up my squashes, pumpkins, sweet and hot peppers. Think that's enough? Recommendations?

Cheers

PS - Fellas, fellas. It's not me you need to be worried about around your ladies, it's them! *Bends down seductively to pull a few weeds* :lol: :lol: :lol:
