Hello everyone,

I thought I would introduce myself from here in Houston, TX
Of course we are not doing much in the gardens right now
but after this short cold snap I am planning for working in
the gardens thru next week as I will be getting plants very
soon.

I will be growing herbs, a tomato, and lots of chili peppers
along with my 3 rose bushes all in containers as we are now
in a rent house after being flooded out by Hurricane Harvey
(5 feet of water in the house) and we were on TV being rescued.
Of course that was back in 2017. And now it is 2020 and we
are keeping as busy as we can under the circumstances.

Nice to see you on NGA. Let's hope it's a calm hurricane season this year. Sorry you had to go through that.

Well right now I am looking forward to receiving a bunch of stuff tomorrow.
I am scheduled to receive a 5 tier Greenhouse and one of my seed starter kits
which should mean I can possibly put my new pepper seeds into a seed starter
and then into the greenhouse. Then on Monday April 20th I should receive
the other seed starter with a dome. I might have to order a few more seeds
while I am at it.

Well, I have received and planted virtually all of my chili pepper plants and
I am just waiting for fruit, I have put a bunch of chili pepper seeds and I
hope to get some seedlings but so far nothing. I have added 3 rose bushes
to my garden and several herbs including several types of basil. We have
planted several succulents and I have my "Desert Rose" which right now is
blooming a lot. For the most part all of the plants are relatively small and
just getting started.

Which basils did you choose Will? and most assuredly hope they do well!

Well lets see I got the regular sweet basil, thai basil, Red Ruebin, and two others that do not come to mind.

Hmmm, I haven't been impressed with the Thai, never grown Red Reubin... where did you order from or find them? I have 3 sweet basil, one is a variety 'Eleanor' supposedly resistant to the downy mildew and doing fairly well.
