The new season is underway. I started my peppers mid February including Anaheim, Pasilla and Ancho peppers. The only ones not doing so well are the Ancho with only two sprouts. The seed was old (2009) so it was expected. I figure I can make due with two plants anyway.
Just before the peppers sprouted I got my light up and running. All these plants have spent the winter stuffed in the spare room to save on hydro. They are looking a little raged at the moment but they will perk up shortly. Once they do I'll start propagating them to fill the outdoor containers.
It is nice to start growing things again! This year we actually had consistant winter weather so it has been a long haul. It will sure be a releif when the snow melts and I can start tending to things outdoors again.
Keep an eye out for my sowing schedule post, which I should have up by the weekend.
