Simple garden techniques described in details so anyone can easily follow through on their end while sharing ideas and pictures on how the garden is progressing through out the year.
Seeding and Transplanting Peppers
Once again spring is almost here and my house turns into a seedling house. Hubby is grumbling but happy knowing that he'll have yummy food later in a year. So far I've planted some of the peppers, brassicas and some zinnias. For peppers I did couple of methods. First one is to pre-sprout them on a wet paper towel covered in plastic (i used Ziploc sandwich bag). You can see in the second picture how the seeds were starting to sprout with white roots visible after couple of days.
I also made a tray with several rows of peppers seeded without pre-sprouting them.
How are your preparations for spring coming up? ready to start digging and planting?

I've seeded my peppers too, but only using the pre-germinating method, which works out best for me - they are just coming up now. I'm not surprised that your nice fresh seed did better than what you purchased - I'm hoping to do a lot more seed saving this year as well.ReplyDelete
That's one of the reason I buy heirlooms, so I can save seeds and plant them next year. Hope yours will do very well.Delete
