    Nothing outdoors before Easter. Thirty years of experience in this location has tempered my enthusiasm, on warm March days. :)

    No warm days yet, this year! Greenhouse, or window sill only. :)

    been small handful a week for a while with lots of yellow up and coming. Many peppers are fun and easy to grow.

    Good on ya, Papa Joe! Nice start set up.

    I’ve got anaheims, hatch, big jim, two types of poblanos, jalapeños, and serranos going since last summer. Chiles are year-round here. Lots of tomatoes too, but that season is coming to an end by June.

    I’ve also got sweet potatoes and green beans going, should be able to start harvesting some soon. Okra just started.

    It’s gets so hot here in the summer that okra (an African plant) and chiles are the only things that grow well. I have to nurse other things along by limiting their direct sunlight etc. Tomatoes just plain won’t set fruit without nighttime temps under 80:(

    Winter is our growing season so we’re backwards from most of the rest of the northern hemisphere.

    Here’s a pic of my ghost chile plant I grew last year. It produced so well I don’t think I’ll ever have to grow them again. I have a bunch dried and a bunch put up in vinegar. These things are HOT.

    Eggzatly..This is inside where we maintain 71 degrees ..They'll be ready to put in the ground when the soil is warm enough..
    After they are well established in the starter bed I'll transplant them to larger pots to give the roots more room to grow..
    I'm planning on having them in the garden by late May or early June..

    I have some potato peels that I am going to plant/bury in a raised bed... Don't laugh, it works.

    My Grandmother always said the same thing. We have seen several days that broke 70 and some long runs of near 60, but there has always been a few low thirties thrown into the mix as well. Just not time yet outside for this area. I don't have an ambitious garden plan this year, I keep thinking that I should as I have the perfect location (large, good drainage, good soil, lots of sun exposure) but by the time I get around to tilling it up I have missed the window of opportunity. Besides, I never know what to plant anymore. In the past it has been tomatoes, corn, and pumpkin, but the results were always disappointing thanks to the rabbits and my long work schedule. Maybe an herb garden this year?

    I have not had a garden in over 20 years, but that is going to change this spring.

    I'm thinking that might be a wise thing for all of us to do..The way things are getting shut down our food supply could quickly become a major concern..

    Just the other day we finished planting blue corn for the first season, hope to grow our usual brand of white corn in July (we get to double crop). The smaller garden is getting some melons and squash...

    My wife has 2 of these trays on the widow sill getting ready. But she’s currently investigating the possibility of a hydroponic set up to grow lettuce in the basement

    Impressive. It's still winter up here, with a foot of snow on the ground in the back yard. The temperature got up close to 0C/32F this afternoon though.

    With all this time off I'm thinking about planting some squash. That's about the only thing that grows well here anyway
