As mentioned in the previous entry, I am getting caught up – or attempting to anyway. So this is from early to late spring. I’m not going to bother “faking” the date although after it’s said and done, I might decide to.
I didn’t buy any transplants this year as I successfully grew everything in the greenhouse. I am going to buy a couple things that were either less successful or were since eaten by the AH animals.
Like last year, I used seeds from “Red Fresno” peppers that I saved from the grocery store.
The plants were very prolific last year…I mean almost Gilligan’s Island radioactive prolific (if you ever saw that episode). Last year I didn’t get many Jalapenos so I used these for the pickled sliced peppers. They’re nice in my salads, hot but not as hot as Jalapeno. I also have Jalapeno’s of course.
I also grew California Wonder, Cayenne and Habanero. Like last year, the Habanero and Cayenne’s are not doing well, and I might buy replacements if they can still be found. The Jalapenos and CW’s are doing very well.
For tomatoes, I planted Farmstand and Best Boy, both hybrids. They are doing good so far.
Also from saved seeds (harvested, not saved from last years purchases. 😉 ) I grew some Asparagus, Marigolds (of course), the Habanero and Cayenne peppers, Echinacea, Lettuce (Black Seeded Simpson),,,and I believe that’s it.
