    Thanks, Andy!  I have quite a few that don't look so great, but couldn't bring myself to post their pictures.

    Highalt's 2014 Grow = Meager beginnings

    We had a dusting of snow this morning, switched to rain this afternoon, and back to snow a couple of hours ago.  Hopefully it won't add up to much, and I work here in town, so no commute.

    Still no pics to post ... sorry.     Currently it is snowing like crazy, and there is a freeze warning the next two nights!!!  So much for the "Don't plant until Mother's Day" myth around here.  I haven't even thought about hardening anything off yet.  Will probably be well after Memorial Day...

    contest Growdown Throwdown 2014 Tallest plant

    I have two tiny, little Chuncho's.  They are growing very slow.  Just now starting to get their first true leaves.  Since plant out here is still at least a month away, there's still time for them to make something of themselves though.

    Thanks for the offer, Jeff!  Not sure how long they are good for, and I am done sowing for this season.     Hi Paul!  Thanks for stopping by!  The Fatalli sprout didn't make it, and the Datil's were helmet heads, so not really going to have any hot yellows this season.  Can't remember if I have...

    Highalt's 2014 Grow = Meager beginnings

    GA, some of the tomato seeds I sowed this year were from as far back as 2008, and had close to 100% germination.  The only no show was Neves Azorean Red.   DJ, the camera is a Nikon Coolpix L310.  I've had it about a year.  It takes great outdoor pictures, and the sports mode is really cool when...

    Highalt's 2014 Grow = Meager beginnings

    Guess I spoke too soon on the "not dead" thing ...   Don't get me wrong, I should end up with enough plants to supply my needs, but I lost a ton of sprouts.  Mostly due to the germinating mix issues.  Wet on the surface, but bone dry 1/2" below the surface.  I tried potting them up into a...

    No, I haven't tried the Bahamian Goat peppers, but will have to research them for next season.   Killed off most of my Manzano sprouts when I separated and replanted them.  Down to 2 Mexican Manzanos and 1 Yellow Manzano.  Lost a couple of habs as well, but have a couple of late sprouters than I...

    Say what!?!  Over 150???   I hadn't actually counted until I saw your post, JJ!   :rofl:   Hmmm ... I only have enough room for 75 - 80, but I'm sure I'll lose a few sprouts before plant-out arrives, and I enjoy giving away the leftovers.
