This is my garden on Friday - looking west. Most of the snow fell in one night.
This is my garden last week:
And here is a pretty photo of the long shadows in the winter Friday morning.
March 1st I spent the day planting seeds for peppers and heirloom tomatoes because Hot Peppers take 12-14 weeks before they can be transplanted outside. Sweet Peppers take 10 weeks around here. And once I take all of the cold weather veggies outside and away from the sprouting station I will transplant the sweet peppers into 9" pots.
I brought the seed starting mix in from the garage in the 5 gallon bucket. Then I added water and used my spade to add it into the pots.
I planted 12 jalapenos, 12 bell peppers, 4 serrano peppers, and 2 cayenne peppers.
I'm also going to try growing Baby Bok Choy this year.
And in these 6 inch pots I planted heirloom tomatoes which also take a lot longer to sprout and they are pretty slow growing. I collected the seeds from last year. This year I purchased seeds for Cherokee Purple which I've never grown before but I've seen that it's quite popular among gardeners. While I absolutely adore eating Pink Brandywine tomatoes, I do love bottling tomato juice and making my own crush tomato sauce with roasted garlic (my mouth is watering).
Not quite sure why I started my romas. huh. Early Girls will get planted the first of April.
I purchased the 3 inch peat pots in a pack of 22 for $1.50
