dehydrating chilli peppers

Posted: 01/10/2014 at 00:31

exactly what you said ive done waiting for my hydrator coming in the post, what i meant is that our summer is over now here so we wont be getting many more sunny days and the plants wouldve started to die off, and if i left the fruit in the GH they wouldnt dry out enough as there wont be enough heat to do it, all my peppers are ripe, even the jalapenos are red since writing this today Ive knocked the temperature up to 60 degrees celsius and they seem to be going crispy now =)

Would love to do that but i live in the northeast of England and we simply won't have the sun and amount of time to do it they will rot, i barely managed to do a decent sized amount of parsley that way this year

Hi there Im trying to dehydrate my chilli peppers I have them in a dehydrator at the minute and it set to 40 degree celcius but so far they havent completely went crispy, theyre still bending when you touch them, Im just wondering if anyone can give me any tips on what temperatures I should have them on, theyve been going since 8;00 last night

Pollination failure in my cucumber plants :(

Hi, something that I tried, cause I've tried using a swab before was to just pick off the male flower, pull its leaves back over on itself towards stem part then I just simply placed that flower as good as I could inside of the female flower, my cumcumbers grew on the main vine part but you could try training a side root, kind of like how melons are grown =) Hope this helps a little, other than trying to attract insects and bee's to your plants there's not a lot more that you can do

Hi, thanks for that bit of information, I've just bought some cuttings from off of ebay now, they're perfect for what I want, that type, thanks a lot @fidget, the seller has over 600, and is 100% and all the comments people have left have seemed to be positive, so finger crossed I can plant them out and they grow

@Philippa yeah, Id read abut you having to have gloves on as it will irritate your skin something rotten

Hit the nail on the head there both of you.. That's exactly why I want a little comfrey patch in my garden

Hi, thanks for the replies, I have two massive allotments side by side, have quite a bit of space, these are just at the back of one of the gardens, "invasive" that makes them sound hard work to get rid of lol, although its only like this cause I've not used that backend this year.

At the back of the other, I have a space were nothing is, I was planning on putting a couple of comfreys in there so I can harvest the leaves, its easily 4x4 metres and coincidentally it used to be the spot that we dumped our ashes and emptied the potted plants compost on to so its out of the way from the main parts of the garden that we grow in

Thanks for the help, advice; dove, nut
