Default My Garden 2018



(I need a new phone, sorry for crummy picture)

So far

Got my last package of seeds from Baker Creek, so now I have all my seeds.

Starting the peppers this weekend. Tomatoes in a couple more weeks. Plant out is usually mid April, but might go into the beginning of May. I'm in Central Washington State were we have very hot and very very dry weather during the summer.

The peppers, beans, lettuce, radishes, and 4 of the small tomato varieties (small tomatoes, not small plants), will be planted at my community garden plot, the rest of the tomatoes and the squash in my back yard.

Overflow tomatoes go to the Farmers Market with me (I sell soap, so I'm there anyway), this year, I'll have a few extra things too.

Looking forward to the year.

Well, that's an exciting looking lineup! 19 tomato varieties will keep you busy.

Re-do photo, with just the tomatoes though. I didn't realize how bad that first photo was. Anyway, you can at least read the seed packets now.



And I started my peppers on paper towels. I'm not a big fan of hot peppers, except for cayenne. I'm pretty much growing the Habaneros because I think they'll sell at the Farmers Market.

I am looking forward to your pictures too. Looks like the cayenne is already sprouting.

It's not sprouting yet, just that some of the seeds were sorta bent in half looking. (Edit to add: never mind, I see what you are seeing, I think it's a sun shadow on the bag, I thought you were referencing the lumpiness of the seeds). They were cheap seeds, I wasn't sure what to expect for germination, so I just put them all in there. I'll probably plant 4 or 5 plants.
