Outdoor Flowers 2016

Ginger's picture

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.



I've been growing parsley in my aerogarden will a seed pod from aerogarden. It has been growing well but I was surprised to see that there's 2 different types of parsley in the same pod.

I've enclosed a picture of the parsley can anyone tell me what the names of the 2 types are?

Is it common for a seed pod to contain more than one type of seed??

Does the flavor of the parsley change very much if is left to grow until it is needed?


Thanks John

Outdoor Tomatoes 2016

Ginger's picture


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 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).

Constantly changing led light update


Both cfl and led lights availability and prices are constantly changing.

Led lights in particular are well within reach and a very attractive consideration for both supplemental and primary lighting. Grow lights used to be a complicated and expensive way to go

Some quick research on YouTube leaave me to think white, 6500k, light and bulb more than 24w in led and 90w in cfl are required.

 I brought a 65w  6500k "corn" light is that equal to 300w for $20. There are many red/blue blubs too.

Does anyone have any feelings or comments about using these lights?
