I've been having "The itch" for a couple of weeks now...the itch to start seeds indoors! So I figured it's time to start tomatoes and peppers....
I can just taste their sunkissed goodness....Hum....Tomatoes!
I start by soaking some peat pellets (in a pink Pyrex!) and then placing them in the trays. I have been starting seeds for about 10 years now and I find that smaller trays (6 pellets) are easier to handle at this stage because the seeds don't all germinate at the same time.
I place one or two seeds in each pellet and cover them with a bit of peat then I place the green house cover on the tray. As you can see on the second picture I misplaced/broke a cover and replaced it with a zipper bag( I hope this works)
So far I sowed 4 kinds of tomaotes (Polish linguisa,bush beefsteak, sweet 100, and yellow cherry tomatoes),ground cherries,3 kinds of peppers (pepperoncini,sweet pickles,ancho). Next week I will sow basil, flat parsley,kale and surely other veggies.....
Last summer the pepperoncini were a great success and delicious. The ancho chilies didn't even sprout, so time will tell. Since I live in a colder climate (zone 41/2-5) some plants just don't want to grow in my garden. I'll keep you posted for sure!
Today was also Friday the 13th so pancakes were a must to ensure the flow of money to the house....to pay the bills of course!!! lol
