Outdoor Eggplant 2017

Ginger's picture


I bought a "white" eggplant transplant this year. Don't know what variety it is, but I've grown the local nursery's "white eggplant" before and liked it slightly more than gretel.

It's funny - green lacewings adore eggplant. Worth growing just to keep a crop of lacewings on hand to control the aphids.

Indoor/Outdoor Tomatoes 2017

Started tomatoes indoors as usual, in potting mix. Started three early, three on time (actually, one of those three was late.)

This year's line-up is:

Early starts (transplanted out age 9 weeks):

bucks county - largish
Park's Whopper CR Improved - largish - first try at this
artisan tiger stripe - grape - mixed colors, so don't know whether I've got something new

In-season starts (transplanted out age 4-5 weeks):

Outdoor Peppers 2017

Started the indoor-outdoor peppers a bit late this year - February 18 / 28. (I forgot I didn't have any more carmen pepper seeds, so that got started later...)

Early starts: yummy, costa rican, and carmen (1.5 weeks less early)
Main season: adds lunchbox peppers

None of them are close to ripe yet. The early yummy pepper is closest, with exactly one fruit. ;) A couple of the carmen peppers are still waiting for a slot in the growbox, while the stonehead cabbages finish heading.


Outdoor Peas 2017

Started the peas (sprouted them indoors, then stuck them into the ground) on March 26, a couple weeks later than usual.  Brutally cold spring, with early January temperatures (teens) in March and April. But the peas are doing well.

This year, 4 varieties. Little Marvel (shell) to the left, super sugar snap and super snappy (edible pod, or shell) in the middle, and wando (shell) to the right. In the middle, super snappy is closer than sugar snap in the photo.
