Grilled Cilantro Chicken Recipe

I have a great tasting Grilled Cilantro Chicken recipe that’s perfect for the Memorial Day and 4th of July holidays coming up. All your friends and family will love this Cilantro Chicken recipe. It’s even gluten free, but that doesn’t discount the flavor and taste.
I used a Weber Kettle Grill to cook this recipe and the cherry wood chips I included added even more flavor than I expected.

 

Tabasco & Island Hellfire Cayenne Chili Cross Taste Test

I finally got the chance to do a taste test for my Tabasco & Island Hellfire Cayenne Chili Cross. I grow chili peppers every year, but this was my first chili cross. Tabasco and Cayenne chilies are my favorite, so I had to cross these two into one even better plant.

Can you handle the heat of some Carolina Reaper grilled chicken wings, if you can then you might like this grilled chicken wing recipe. This chicken wing recipe has a honey reaper glaze and tastes great.
Chicken wings are one of my favorite foods, and I had to share one of my spiciest recipes. These chicken wings pack a ton of flavor! Not only do you have that super spicy Carolina Reaper taste, but this recipe also has a nice dose of smokey taste.

My Atlantic Giant Pumpkin is Off to a Good Start

Chilies may be my favorite plant to grow, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for other fruit and vegetables. This is my first crack at growing a giant pumpkin.  I’ve been wanting to grow a giant pumpkin for years now, but I always felt I didn’t have the room.  This year I’m going to try anyway.

acording to Rare Seeds, this Atlantic Giant Pumpkin can weigh around 500-1,000 pounds, with some plants getting up to 2,000 pound fruit.  I don’t know how I would move something that big, but I’ll deal with that problem when the time comes.  For now I’m just going to have fun growing it.  I know it’s going to take up a lot of space, so I saved an entire bed just for this one plant.  My hope is that I can make room by only allowing the pumpkin to grow and stopping a second fruit from forming.  I’ll be doing updates as it grows.

How To Prepare Your Garden For Chilies and More

 

I grow chili plants every year, and in this video I show you guys how to space and prepare your chili plants. Preparing your garden can be a bit confusing, so I hope this video clears things up!

As far as spacing goes, I’m using the Square Foot Gardening technique.  I really do think that the Square Foot Gardening technique is the best option for small gardens.  I also go into details on how you should prepare your transplant holes and how your roots can grow better.

Adding these steps to your spring garden preparations can improve your soil and help you produce better fruits and vegetables.
I grow my pepper plants in raised beds, so adding amendments to my soil and plants is important. That way my chili plants get all the minerals and fertilizer they need to thrive.

Chili Plants From Cross Country Nurseries

If you want to skip the process of starting chili plants from seed, then chileplants.com is the perfect place to order your chili plants from.  I don’t have the space or equipment to grow my own pepper plants from seed, so this is always a perfect option.  Plus, they have a ton of varieties to choose from. 500 to be exact, but not every variety is always in stock.

This is my second year ordering from Cross Country Nursery and they always do an awesome job with shipping my pepper plants. These plants are grown in a greenhouse up in New Jersey, so because of the cold they just started shipping this past week.  A few varieties are already sold out for the season, so if you want to place an order do it soon.

I received my plants yesterday, so I’m going to harden them off for a few days before I plant them in my garden bed.  You want to harden off your plants, so they get use to being outside and don’t suffer from shock.  After all, these plants are used to the controlled conditions of a greenhouse.

The bottom line is that this is a great option if you want to grow peppers and skip the seed process.
