Its starting


Here we are at the half way point in March and I am already complaining that this month is going by to fast...lol I know I know I do that every month, but gesh things really need to start slowing down at bit.

On the 13th I got around to planting a few seeds. Not too many as I ran out of time and started second guessing that I was planting, but some is better than none! I plant 3 seeds into each cell so when it comes time to thinning them I can always transplant a few instead of scrapping them

So here it is... one little tray!

 4 cells of artichokes
4 cells of Hungarian wax peppers
8 cells of cayenne peppers
8 cells of jalapeno pepper
4 cells of big Jim’s large chilli peppers
4 cells of habanero peppers

I think I should be good for peppers this year. My plan is to make chili flakes, ground pepper and pickled peppers. I think this should give me enough, but if not then I will know better for next year.

  3. Boy ;you really love peppers. I thought I grew quite a few but you sure have me beat. I grow a small semi-hot Turkish one that is just wonderful for pickling. I lived in Turkey eons age and got the first seeds and recipe from my landlord. Now I can order them from a seed catalog.
    Good luck with your garden and happy canning.
