New, Clueless and ready to learn


Hi everyone.

My name is JD. My wife and I live in a little fast growing city located in the south part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

I'll try to keep my introduction short and relatively sweet. 

We are both self-admitted plant-lovers and plant-destroyers all in one. The main issue I think is that we aren't very knowledgable first so I admit that. 2ndly, that north Texas sun and heat. 3rdly we travel so often it get's a bit difficult to keep up with watering regularly or just keeping plants alive.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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...
