Howdy.
As the topic suggests, first time poster. Long time lurker. Thought I'd pop my head out and say hello.

 

I signed up here a few years back and have even met a few of the GZ regulars at Snap gatherings in CHC.

 

My name is Mark ("the other Mark P") and I work for 2degrees (formally Snap).
I am responsible for some of the old Ralph posts, and have held a few differnt roles at the company.
Currently working with our Solution Delivery department which assists with Small Business and Corporate customers. But like a lot of us, I came from the Residential Support world.

 

Figured I should introduce myself prior to posting anywhere.
Outside of generic geek activities; I play American Football in Christchurch, grow chillies, make hotsuaces, play music (bass guitar and drums) and brew beer.

 

I support the New Orleans Saints (NFL) and Highlanders (Super Rugby).

 

Cheers.

I started out with San Luis Ancho's and Jalapenos, then sort of spiralled out of control.
This season, I have: Jalapeno, Peach Habanero, Paper Lantern Habanero, Big Sun Scotch Bonnet, Chocolate Scorpion, Big Black Mama, Big Yellow Mama, Devil's Brain, Chocolate Devil's Tongue, Brazilian Caramel Ghost, Chocolate Bhutlah and there's probably something I have forgotten.. As I said, got a little bit out of control..

I think you may need to go to Chilli Growers anonymous! I only grow a few varieties, but I grow lots of them.

Ha! Yessir, I think my partner would agree with you. What are you growing this season, mate?
If you want any seeds for the varieties that I've listed for next season, feel free to DM me and I'll happily mail you a sample pod and some seeds!

Mostly jalapenos, an ajay cito, and one that makes small orange ones that I don't really know what they are but they're pretty hot. Might be scotch bonnet.
