Harvest Season at Gordz Hot Sauce

Canadian Hot Pepper Grower
Pepper Harvest 2019 Pepper Harvest in Canada at Gordz Hot Sauce farm was very different this year! In past years, we generally held a 'harvest day' on Thanksgiving, as the True North is not usually very plant friendly after this time. Friends would gather for a picking party! It was generally a 1 day affair. This year, well, this year was interesti...

AUGUST IN THE PEPPER GARDENS AT GORDZ HOT SAUCE

​ You can see the gardens are looking fabulous with big healthy hot pepper plants, despite the weather this summer. We had such a late planting and then it went directly from wet and cold to dry and superhot!  Although we keep the peppers in good water supply, nothing makes them happier than rain and thunderstorms. Believe it or not. Unde...

Some of the hot pepper plants grew to gigantic proportions! The pepper plants really love being in the dirt versus potted, and they sure do love the rain! The mature fruit...

Summer

​As summer progresses, we continue to water, weed and tend all these pepper plants. The landscape fabric saves much of the weeding time. The birds take care of pest control for us, as they walk under the plants snagging the pests for lunch. We seem to have a security detail of hummingbirds as well. I did mention we live in a birdcage, right? As the...

This is the beginning 2015...

​We began this year by ordering fresh seed stock to compliment our own harvested seeds from last year.  We sow the seeds in tray after tray of too many varieties to list. We line them all up on tables under their domes for easy watering and we wait for them to sprout. Once sprouted, we add lights to assist with their growth and ...
