Ghost peppers with tomatoes?


Hi all, 


First time poster, just pondering seeds for my second aerogarden (bounty model) effort.  I'm finishing up with the herbs which went well but I didn't really use enough of them.  I'd like to do the ghost peppers, but the description suggested doing 2 seed pods for a 9 pod system.  Just curious  - does anyone have a sense of how it'd work if i grew one ghost pepper seed pod and some tomatoes (maybe 2 pods)?   

Thanks and look forward to learning more about all this stuff..    

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 Peppers 2016

The peppers are still indoors at this point, but getting big - about 13 weeks old now for the indoor/outdoor pair, a yummy and a carmen.

This is my first try growing yummy. They seem to need more light than carmen. It didn't hold onto any fruit until I got up to 3 23W CFLs for the two plants. But now happy.

The regular-season outdoor peppers are also 3 weeks old now (from seed).


Aerogarden Ultra LED, Sweet Baby Girl Tomato

Replanted my LED Ultra a week ago, this time trying sweet baby girl tomato.

They just taste good. Yes, the fantastico yielded fantastically - but sweet baby girl taste so much better. The seeds came up fast.

Update: Added 2-week photo.

Then 3-week. Pruned above 5th branch at 3 weeks. It already had suckers growing, including from seed leaves - branchy tomato.

Outdoor Tomatoes 2016

Still inside, of course, but the elder tomatoes are now 3 weeks old, and the younger ones just planted.

I'm trying tomato grafting for the first time!

Learning 1:  grafting rootstock grows faster than anything I want to graft to it! Should have planted scions 5 days before rootstock...

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.

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.)
