Wow Carolyn, you sure have been busy. Everything looks so very nice and healthy. I wish that I were there to smell the soil.
From the looks of things, your customers will be very, very happy.

If you were hoping to sell them I have seen mixed peppers for sale as bedding plants in 6 paks. Not something I would buy but obviously some people do!

if it was all hot peppers or all sweet peppers maybe it would be okay, but I do have a customer who gets 5 flats of mixed plants for a father day present... I could use them for that, but this is the year of lots and lots of well germinated peppers seeds. . the jalapenos were for planting up to sell.... sigh. those are the only ones that I really need. maaaaybe I will label them as "mostly" jalapenos.

Sounds like a great time Saturday,maybe I can stop by in Wadsworth if we're not babysitting our grandchildren.One thing you might know is a great place to get some compost,as my garden soil is cracking badly and I need something to add to the top layer.
