I don't know. There's a guy who comes to help maintain, but I don't know if anyone else is really there regularly.

This is my garden from 2 years ago. It was a little overgrown . It's hot and sunny and crazy dry here, so overgrown jungle gardens are ok.

Thanks! I'm pretty excited about this season. I'm only growing one plant of each type except Martino's Roma, and probably KBX, so I planted 3 per pot and I'm anxiously waiting for them to show up. I have time to re-plant any that don't germinate, though.

Still waiting on Rebel Alliance, Candy Sweet Icicle, KBX, Cherokee Purple, and Barry's Crazy Cherry.

RA, and CSI took a few days longer to germinate.

Ok, now at least one in every variety is up or at least starting to poke through the dirt. Now we just need spring.

Sun is shining, that's a start. It's only 32 degrees though.

So much green!





Now I'm going to have to pull all those extras and fight the urge to rescue them all and find new places to stuff them in my back yard.

One of the trays. They got repotted with potting mix. I'll add more as they get bigger.


Tiny Mocha Splash with its tiny potato leaves


Rebel Alliance


And Martino's Roma, the biggest plants of the bunch

Looking good! I know what you mean about the urge to remove extras coming up in each pot. Instead of pulling them out and risk disturbing tiny roots, I use a very small pair of scissors and just clip the extras. It's fast and easy.

I just used plastic tweezers, gets them out without potentially clumsy fingers in the way.

I just started a bunch more seeds because my sister talked me into selling plants with her (she grows herbs) at a small local flea market type of thing. I'm gonna have plants coming out of my ears.

You've just cranked your addiction up a notch. Let us know how that goes.
