Some of the peppers have germinated--they can take up to 3 weeks. I planted both red and yellow bell peppers, and a few of both varieties are up. Green peppers are still reasonably priced, even during the winter, but the sweet colored ones are crazy expensive. It looks like I will be able to house at least 6 plants and up to 10 if some more seeds germinate.
While looking through my leftover seeds, I found some bush baby watermelon that I tried in the garden last year. They only get about 3 feet around in a "bush" formation. I threw those all in the flat too, thinking it they sprouted, it would be fun to stick it in their too. 3 little sprouts came up, so I will find a place to put'em.
I bought several different lettuce mixtures last spring--enough to last us through the winter. So I will soon sow long planters of that so we can harvest them this fall. I plan to sow some every couple of weeks to keep it in different stages.
