serrano's i know but never heard of fish peppers
Those colored beans look so pretty and why rush to plant onions at this time of year and I heard fertilizer is scare or will get scarce--I think...I am going to try to do potatoes this year with one tomato plant and some mild peppers green for seasoning...just a few..Lots of work this gardening and its kind of full filling . My neighbors were happy with all the extra tomato's as well..Pretty picture of of your garden food. Thanks for sharing...clancey
I love volunteer lettuce. I mulch so heavily down here that it can be hard for it to get a good start as the seeds end up getting buried too deeply. I planted some fall romaine lettuce, and several heads have started to bolt. It’s just been too warm a fall and winter. I’m hoping to put some compost down in that bed and get some to seed in the spring from the bolted heads.I still have lettuce still growing in the garden.. its seed that came up from one that went to seed over the summer
I used to grow in my greenhouse all winter, but the heating bill was ridiculous! This year I decided to grow lettuce hydroponically in my unfinished cellar. It does well, but it is too cold for tomatoes, so I grow them upstairs in my den.
Around here you can get seeds right after the 1st of the new year. I already have most of my seeds for the upcoming season from the ones I saved from this past season and the ones I bought online a couple of months back. I'll still check out the local stores for anything that catches my eye. I grow a lot of basil so we have it fresh in season, and I dehydrate a lot so we have it off season.I went looking for basil seeds yesterday and nobody had seeds out.
I was hoping to have some volunteer plants in my hanging pot. I let it go to seed in there. I got 2 sprouts out of it, lol.
