I started my Vegetable Gardening today by planting my pepper seeds indoors in cellpacks.

I have 12 plants each planned of Japanese Peppers Slim Pim, Shishito and Fushimi.

Now I have to get going on my tomato seeds.

So the new season has started. What us going on in your 2017 veggie gardens?

I have three flats of 36 each planned so should be 108 plants. This afternoon I just managed to already plant one flat of 36.

So if I manage to just fill those other two flats with the potting soil so that I can plant tomorrow I should be good.

I am waiting on my pepper plants to sprout but my tomato seedlings have come up. Tiny but they are there and of course they grow quickly.

I know, I hate a cold March. Seems to me it should be spring weather.

I have always bought my pepper plants before but decided to get seeds and start my own this season. So far so good. Took longer than the tomatoes to come up but now most have showed up.

I had a great year for peppers last season and lots of fruit. This in spite of the fact that I only had 6 plants. So this year wanting to plant lots more. I have discovered Japanese Peppers and I just love them. So easy and so productive.
