Ghost Peppers (2/28/2016)


I planted this Ghost Pepper Kit from AG on 2/28/2016. It didn't perform very well. What I've learned since, is that these are serious slow growers. 140-172 days from seed to ripe fruit in soil. One pod never germinated. The other was at 2" for so long I moved it to another garden, because I didn't want to give up on it yet, and I wanted to free a garden. 2 weeks later it started to grow. It is now 71 days and I have an open bloom,, and many buds waiting to produce.

Jamaican Hot Yellow "Mushroom" Pepper (2/20/2016)

This was the first of the gardens I planted on one of the three AG Bounties I've purchased this year. I've never had very good luck with peppers much hotter than a jalapeno. With 50% more power than the Ultra, I decided to take another chance on an extremely hot pepper. These are Jamaican Hot Yellow Peppers. They are nicknamed "Mushrooms". They are as hot as a Scotch Bonnet Habanero. When ripe, they will be bright yellow, and resemble the "Mushroom" when inverted.

Pimento Sweet Peppers (2/28/2016)


These are the only sweet peppers I have growing now. They are a sweet pepper used for stuffing olives. There is another variety that is more common called the Pimiento pepper, or Round of Hungary that looks like a small pumpkin. I love stuffing these with hot sausage, cream cheese and garlic.

Transplanting outside with a foot of roots


I started some Armenian Cucumbers in a seed starter kit in the AG.

The roots are about a foot long or more - http://www.gthomson.us/projects/landscaping/armenian-cucumbers-1.jpg

7 out of 8 started really well, so I want to start moving them outside.
With such long roots, what's the best way to move outside?

For the first two, I dug only a 6" hole, and spiriled the bottom end of the roots.

Outdoor Onions and Potatoes 2016

First outdoor harvest of the year was thinning my green onions. smiley

I started a bunch of white and yellow onions indoors and planted them out around March 25 (2-3 onions per cell in a 6-pack), walla walla (I've grown before) and yellow granex (haven't grown before). I'm not the granex will work this far north, but can't hurt to try.

Ourdoor Greens 2016

My first cabbage and lettuce transplants have been outside for 4 weeks now, aged 9 and 6 weeks, I think. Oh, how little we've grown...

There really was gorgeous early spring weather, after a ridiculously warm winter. Then we got a cold spell. Nothing died. But they sure haven't grown much either.

Hopefully now we're done with all that deep-freeze nonsense. (As of, like, 10:00 a.m. this morning.)

Outdoor Flowers 2016

The pansies have had a rough time outdoors, but pansyfest is approaching anyway! laugh Got a decent crop of shady lady impatiens coming along indoors, too. Only one of my hollyhocks seems to be coming back from winter - oh, well. The purple violas I planted last year, and a few of last year's pansies, are doing well.
