This tomato plant is one that was bitten back before W got the heater in my greenhouse hooked up. It had a small tomato on it, and the stalk never froze so I kept watering it. In a few days I will be rewarded with a vine-ripened home grown tomato.
One of my pineapple plants had bloomed in the fall and put on a tiny pineapple. It has continued to grow in the greenhouse but has a few more months to go. Homegrown pineapples are a lesson in patience. The flavor of one picked off the plant when ripe blows away a grocery store pineapple.
I am late with starting my seeds this year due to the new house craziness. I am planning to purchase some of my pepper plants and maybe a tomato or two from a neighbor who runs a nursery. I planted seeds for pepper plants that I have trouble finding (baby bell, purple bell, and pepperocini). I also prefer heirloom tomatoes so I grown those myself and have started some herb seeds too. I bought the plant labels on clearance last year and am wishing now that I had bought more.
I use saved mushroom containers to hold the peat pellets. They are the perfect size to hold up to four seed starts.
