2016 Gardening Update 2

belpepersedlingsWhile out seed shopping, my husband saw a pack of mixed colors of bell peppers. One of the colors is purple and since we’ve never seen a purple pepper, he bought the pack of peppers. The pepper seeds are all mixed up and we can’t be sure which pepper colors is which, so my husband bought a 72 pellet tray for me to start them in. Almost all the seeds have sprouted. We’re going to have a huge pepper patch (and there’s no guarantee that we’ll have a purple pepper since there’s 30 seeds left over.lol)
The seedlings won’t be ready for transplanting for a couple weeks or so. I hope they continue to grow and most of them will survive transplanting. Now what to do with all the peppers. lol

Our radishes and onions are growing pretty well in the big garden. It’s hard to get a good photo of them at this stage of their growth, but I tried anyhow.

wasptrapOn a bit of a crafty note, I made a wasp trap out of a cola bottle, duct tape and put some Hawaiian punch in it. I’m happy to report that it works. I plan to set several of these up and hang a few to try and keep the wasp population under control around our home.

Wishing you all Happy Spring Gardening!gardening

  1. I hope you get some purple peppers out of all those seeds, it will be interesting to see them grow and eventually taste!
    Nifty idea to keep the wasps at bay.

    • Thanks Barb
      Of the 72 seeds, 60 pepper plants started and they’re growing beautifully. I sure hope there’s a purple one or dozen in them lol Next year I’ll buy purple pepper seeds and not worry about if I’ll be successful with a mix.
