I haven't been blogging as of late because our little one is finally letting us do things like reading. Since it has been years since I've read a book, I have been devouring them these last couple months. Oh how I missed you, books!!
So blogging and seed starting has definitely taken a back seat to my shameful insatiable consuming bookish needs. At least the seedlings are still getting watered everyday.
The peppers haven't been germinating. I started them in a peat moss based seed starting medium and that always seems to give me problems, but at least 5 varieties managed to germinate out of 11 types that were seeded. Usually I use coconut coir to start peppers and those hard to start seeds like asparagus.
Peppers and eggplant were seeded March 14th. Tomatoes and Italian eggplants were seeded April 2nd.
Below are lists of varieties that have sprouted which I will try to keep updated.
Numex Big Jim
Cambodian Green Giant
Tonda Bianca Sfumata di Rosa
Thai Long Purple
I went ahead and re-seeded pepper and eggplant varieties that haven't germinated yet, so fingers crossed.
