May be jumping the gun a little but I started 144 pepper seeds this evening (12 different varieties). Anyone else start seeds yet?

I will probably be transplanting tomatos tomorrow. Almost all of them have their first true leaves. The peppers are coming slowly. I don't use a heat pad and only about 1/3 have sprouted so far.

i have good results using peat pellets and a small jiffy tereriam with the clear plastic lid placed on my furnace, most of my peppers sprouted within days of planting, i realize i jumped the gun planting early but so what it keeps me out of the womans hair

I use the same system. I had some peppers sprout really early and had to get them under the lights so they didn't stretch. Several popped overnight. Here's the tomatos


and the peppers



I'll probably start the cabbage and broccoli later in the week

lookin good i wish i had the room for a larger garden but im renting and have to container most of the garden. i never realized before container gardening the extra care and watering required but still beats not having the option of walking out the door and picking something.i dont know why i bother but every year i am gonna only start some peppers and tomatoes. well so far i have 6 different spices coming 4 lettuce varities hot and sweet peppers tomatoes onions kolarabi and cabbage. it just seems once i get started i cant stop planting.

I know how you feel. I just started really getting into gardening a few years ago and last year was the first year I started everything from seed. This year, I have 17 different types of tomatoes and 12 different types of peppers started.

just wondering,do u grow jetstar tomatoes, they do well in my area of luzerne ct. but havnt had any luck finding seeds. last year i found plants at wall-mart and should of saved seeds but i dont trust plants i dont start myself because of hybrids that seeds saved may not come true to the mother plant,made that mistake once and had a crop of plum and cherry tomatoes that was supposed to be big-girl

We have peppers and tomatoes up in the starter trays and they will be ready to transplant to flats starting in 2 weeks...we started Cabbage, leaf lettuse and Romain Lettuce yesturday....all peppers and tomatoes were staggered in starting, something we have not done in years past..
1,500 different green peppers, about 1,000 different hot peppers up and growing...we are thinking of starting more hot peppers....

we have just started...there is much more to do in the greenhouse before we even plow the fields!
