Peppers resource thread - opinions & suggestions, please

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

After testing this idea in the Tomatoes forum, I put together this thread: which is "stickied" at the top of the Peppers forum.

Here's what we'd like to know:

1) Is it helpful (i.e., did you learn about a resource you didn't know existed, or how to better use one of the resources it described?)

2) How could it be more helpful?

3) Would you prefer to see this type of thread remain as a "sticky" thread, or linked to a separate page within the description at the top of the forum? (Were you aware of the text at the top of this or other forums? It's a fair question - don't be afraid to say you never read them ;o)

4) Other feedback for us?

5) Other threads that should be included in the "Members Favorite Threads" section - please post them here or send them to the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page of the site.

Thank you for listening to my request! Yes leave it as a sticky--I'm constantly looking up varieties and this is very nice.

Great "sticky" -- Thanks!!

I recently added specific information on how I start peppers from seed to this seed starting thread in the propagation forum: I'd posted it in this forum previously, but it was buried in another thread. I hope this won't be seen as shameless self promotion LOL, but I thought it might be a useful link for the new sticky.

Yes, it is shameless self promotion, but we love you anyway, lol. And we VALUE your VAST wisdom!!

Chuckle - whether it's self-promotion or not, it looks like helpful information! I added it as a members' favorite link.

Frederick, MD(Zone 6b)

Thanks! I get asked to find & Dmail that info every so often, so it's good to have it in the sticky.

I guess it would only be really shameless self-promotion if I were selling a book or peddling seedlings. :-)

I hope nobody is misled by the thread title to try transplanting pepper seedlings in clumps... LOL... "clump transplanting" is in the first part of the thread (for basils etc.), and I put it in the title so it had a better chance of being found if somebody were searching for the term. Terry, I know this is pretty trivial, but if you have a chance to make the change, to avoid confusion could you maybe just title the link "critterologist's seed starting tips" and leave out the clump transplanting? Thanks!

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Done! And now I'm heading out to un-weed my peppers and other veggies. (Too hot to weed last week + rains over the weekend = lots of weed growth.) Sigh....

Frederick, MD(Zone 6b)

Heya, Terry! When you get a chance, would you please replace the thread link above with a link to today's article from me on starting peppers from seed? It's more organized than my previous post on the topic, and it has photos plus links to my other Seed Starting 101 articles. Thanks!

Carnation, WA(Zone 7b)

I'm new to peppers. I heard about and then searched for Critter's seed starting thread through forum discussions, saved it to my favorites so I can refer back again as needed. As I'm just getting started with my co op seeds, I'm sure I'll refer to the resource thread more (I do on the tomato forum) as I gain knowledge and go looking for specific peppers and info.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Sorry for the delay, but it's been replaced ;o)

Frederick, MD(Zone 6b)

Thanks, Terry!

Ladybugg, I'm pretty sure the article I wrote contained all the pertinent info from my previous posts on that seed starting thread and more. Hope you're having good luck with your seedlings this year!

Algonac, MI

I just spent an hour on these threads and I am going back right after I send this reply.
It isn't just good.... it's GREAT. Keep it up! I don't care which way you produce a/the thread, they are not too much of a problem for me to navigate.
