This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he always thought the garden was his. Even though I do all the work, he always stood by me. I'm located near Boston (in USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot and a backyard vegetable garden. I use sustainable organic methods and try to grow all of my family's vegetables.

pepper sprouts

two sprouts one sprout
It is now 12 days after I planted pepper seeds (on March 15). Lots of little sprouts have come up. The pepper package said the seeds would sprout in 10-21 days (at 70F) and then be ready to plant in the garden in about 8 weeks (about May 15). I've been incubating these seeds at about 75F by keeping them next to a light under my fish tank. I found I had to keep a sheet of glass over them, as they dried out very fast without it. Once the sprouts get a bit bigger I will bring them out to a window sill.

They look great! I'm glad the fish tank worked, it was a good idea.

Sorry, but I do not even know what RSS is. I was thinking of looking it up, but haven;t. Just one of things I haven't had time for.

Well, I did work on the RSS feed a bit. I added some code to my template and there is now a section towards the bottom of my sidebar that allows you to subscribe to my posts (using atom). Please let me know if anyone would like me to add more. I am sorry that I do not personally use RSS feed and am not yet familiar with the issues/process.
