Starts!

Progress has been made! I’m going to try growing peppers this year, despite our terribly short and cool season. In poking around on the Seed Savers Exchange, I was able to find some varieties listed for short seasons. And with the shipping charges the way they are, it made sense to load up a few varieties to test them out. I fully expect that at least one of the peppers will fail spectacularly. I’ll probably also supplement with a small hot pepper as those seem to do well despite cool, short growing seasons.

I’ve also decided not to worry about getting the starts going – I’m just going to concentrate on the tomatoes. So the transplants will arrive in mid-May ready for dropping in the ground. Now I just have to hope that we don’t have a late cool snap.

That sounds like a good plan. Were they bell type peppers, or banana peppers? I'm going to have to get started soon. There's already spring pollen in the air.

Some bell, some hot, one chocolate. It'll be an interesting mix. One each of King of North, Sheepnose, Sweet Chocolate, Tolli's Sweet, and Wenk's Yellow. I'd never heard of any of them before, but they sound fun.
