Started a number of peppers and tomatoes in the basement under fluorescent lights. The full list -
- Amish Paste
- Black Krim
- Red Cherry, Large Fruited
- Black Cherry
- Cherokee Purple
- Hungarian Wax
|The starter setup.|
It's still well before the last frost date (mid May) but the weather has been warm, and I took a chance and transplanted some tomatoes and basil outside. If it gets killed by frost there are plenty of replacement seedlings waiting in line. The tomatoes are in buckets that were freecycled from work (they used to contain hard-boiled eggs). The basil is in old 2 liter soda bottles.

Lots of cleanup work to do the next few weeks in the garden.
