  • I've gotten a few of the new seed catalogs in, Gurney's, Johnny's Select seed. I know of a couple more should be on the way. I can hardly wait to get back in the garden.

  • And what a garden you have!

  • Thanks, for the compliment Steve. Part of the garden is covered in piles of leaves and part of it has already been tilled. This freeze should help the soil. I'm still working on my gardening notes, but kinda slow when you have a broken finger.

  • I considered working the soil, but so much for good intentions.

    I expect the temps over the next two nights should also knock down the insect population a little bit. They probably did not plan on it being this cold, like us.

    It is amazing how much we take all of our working parts for granted until one is injured. I am sure a broken finger affects you more than you thought originally. My typing is bad enough without a handicap.

  • Steve,

    Got my copy of The Cook's Garden seed catalog in the mail. Quite a big selection of veggies in it. Also, have you heard of anyone having Ghost Chili pepper plants locally? I'm itching to get back in the garden.

  • I have not heard of anyone growing them for sale. Maybe someone else knows? I would think one plant would go a looong way.

    For those who are not into hot peppers, here is a link describing them. I can not say from personal experience since I do not enjoy pain. Spicey yeas but these sounds ................ http://hubpages.com/hub/Ghost_chili_is_named_Worlds_Hottest_Pepper

    By the way espoontoon, that pepper plant you gave me is doing well and even kicked out a flower this past week. It must be itching like RT to get back in the garden.

  • I found someone who has planted some of the ghost chili seeds in her greenhouse. We'll see how well the seeds germinate and how the transplants do.

  • Does the Ghost Chili have a history of germination issues?

  • Not that I know of, it is just the first time they have planted any of the seeds for transplant.

  • I checked with the grower and she hasn't planted the seeds yet, plans to around the end of the month.
