I sowed my seeds over 4 weeks ago , now growing under light nicely. My intende plantout date is early April. So I have 4 more weeks. Weather permitting (based on forecast) I might jump in little early. Last year I planted some experimentals on March 12 then a week later got freezing temperatures for couple of night. So those were my sacrifices to the mother nature.

I've had uneven results with dwarfs, too. I have a few Hardin's seeds, sent to the MMMM by Nan; PM if you'd like to try again and I'll send them your way.

30 varieties of peppers sowed already, another 15 varieties to go.
I'll start tomatoes and tomatillos at the end of March, list still forming. I scored some bonus space this year so that list might get big.
Eggplants, 2 varieties, may start them this weekend.
Will start 4 varieties of peas, 2 varieties of spinach and 3 varieties of cabbage this weekend,
All sorts of herbs are started. Pansies have already sprouted.
Other than that - corn, several bean varieties, several melon varieties, pumpkin, cucumber, lettuces, beets, carrots, radishes, okra and various flowers.
I'm sure I left something out.

Just curious - is the idea of the themes to be able to compare the best ones for taste, ease of growing or other?

A general question for everyone - how do you decide which varieties to plant each year? I'm sure it is different for everyone but it would be interesting to learn.

Mostly just for fun. I've done varieties with the names of relatives, varieties with country names, tomatoes alphabetically, and several other themes.

With hearts (never met a heart I didn't love) it is for flavor and for blacks it is for flavor comparisons.

Thanks PaulF! That seems like a fun strategy. I would be interested what you end up with in terms of comparisons at the end of the season.
