On Friday my daughter and I planted another set of seeds. These were all for the vegetable garden and they were all even in the same family, nightshade. We planted a several varieties of tomatoes and peppers in our peat pot system. We're still waiting on a few more seeds to come in through the mail. April 15 is the normal last frost date here in TN and we're starting these seedlings about 6 weeks early. The squash, cucumbers, and other vegetables I plant directly in the ground while I start the tomatoes and peppers early and should be ready to go in ground right around mid April.
Here's what we started:
|Tomato Varieties |
|Pepper Varieties |
|Yellow Pear (heirloom) NIMG ||Ornamental Peppers NIMG|
|Brandywine (heirloom) VY||California Wonder Y|
|Better Boy Y||Cardinal Hybrid VY|
|Supersweet 100 VY||Big Dipper Y|
|Beefmaster Y||Cayenne Y, also HOT |
|Roma VFN Y|
|Viva Italia Roma VY|
|Big Boy Hybrid VY|
Codes: NIMG - New in my garden, VY - Very Yummy, Y - Yummy, No other code is necessary as anything less than yummy doesn't deserve to be planted!
I'll tell you about the other seeds as they arrive!
