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.
