Uknow 2021. It's been a while...

Hey all!

Took a while off from posting and didn't grow anything at all last year, sadly. Decided to get something going this year, albeit a lot smaller than my usual grows. Only started 40 plants (double seeds so 80 total) this year on February 25th. Started them in 3.5" pots instead of cells, I figure since im way behind my usual start date of early January, the extra room will help them grow faster and I won't have to transplant them right away.

Currently remodeling the house so I had to downsize my setup to make it easier to move around as needed (going to be starting drywall soon).

Seeds and varieties this year are all from my 2017 & 2018 seasons (didn't save any from my 2019 grow) and other members. Some from Genitix, Jedi Sushi and one or two other people, apologize I can't remember all the names offhand.

So, as I mentioned, these were planted 2/25, here we go!


Grow list...

Edit: The abbreviations on the varieties are as follows:

BT - seeds originally came from Butch Taylor

OW - seeds were from one of my overwintered plants, so the parent plant was true at the time.

Op - seeds came from an Open Pollinated pod

ISO- seeds came from a pod I managed to isolate (I use the wood glue method, gluing the flower shut right before it's about to open)

OG - seeds left from the original batch of seeds I was gifted from other members.


New setup...

I'll be starting some Jalapenos and Bell peppers along with tomato's, cucumbers and onions mid March, about 2 weeks.


Hopefully I can make time to post regular updates again.

It's good to be back!

Great size and easy to handle.
 
All looking good there, buddy!
Thanks!

Recently ran into an issue about 2 weeks ago or so with my peppers and tomatoes both showing deformed growth, was worried it was herbicide drift from a neighbor, but the new growth is looking better now. I think it might have been heat stress and low water stress. Was on vacation for about 10 days and it got really hot at home, about a week of 90+ with my plant sitter only checking every other day or so. Hopefully that's all it was. They never dropped any flowers or fruit that has already set, so I think they'll be ok.

Here is how they were looking. I don't have updated pics of the fresh growth yet.
