  • I just want to eat some vine ripe tomatoes this summer. Gardening is out of the question due to the squirrels and deer. (let them grow their own dam food) But i did not get a single delicious Tennessee tomato last summer,and i need to make up for lost time!

    You grow them seeds, and I will be willing to help eat! (smiley face)

  • I believe there will be more than a few from which to choose Lazarus so that should be easy to arrange. Two varieties were seeded on Sunday but I will start more in the next few weeks.

  • I am notoriously bad with plants -- my late mother gave me house plants two different times, and I killed both of them. I also tried once or twice to start one of those little herb garden boxes.

    But after learning how to make fermented hot sauce last year, I am trying yet again. I have several different pepper varieties planted in one of those seed-starter kits, and they've finally started to sprout in the past day or two.

    Here's a post I wrote on my personal blog back when I started the seeds: https://medium.com/@johnicarney/seeds-planted-6cb8ef3cc6e6

  • Iíve grown some hot peppers and in fact have one overwintered for several years now but nothing as lethal as those you discussed. While mine are hot to me, they might seem like regular green peppers to you. Mine are more for ornatmental use than culinary.

    Those bag planters will probably dry quickly once it gets hot. You might consider watering every day or at east every other day when in full sun.

    I have not looked at the peppers in the seed bank I got today. I might have some more to your liking.
