Seedlings started

Seedlings have been started by now - one whole grow rack is full with flats of hot peppers, sweet peppers (we are growing sweet chocolate peppers this year), several kinds of eggplant, bunching onions, herbs (sage, cilantro, parsley, fennel, marjoram, lavender, thyme), some native feels so good to get our hands back into the soil on a daily basis again.  Tomatoes come next, and soon our house and greenhouse will be bursting at the seams with seedlings on every available rack, table and countertop.  That's usually what the months of April and May look like around here!


  1. Sweet, chocolate that is a new one for me...I will have to look for that to plant! I have planted chocolate mint before but not chocolate peppers! So fun to start gardening!!!

  2. That is a great feeling...getting seeds started! We built a small greenhouse and were able to start for our first year of real urban farming!
