This year, I’ve ordered a bunch of unique and rare hot peppers. Some are habaneros and others are South American hot peppers. All are exceptionally beautiful and really different. But, as they take longer to mature, I’m starting their seeds first, this week. As soon as they are planted, I’ll continue on with our good old stand-bys and favorites, both hot and sweet. I can’t wait! Starting seeds makes winter go so much faster. I’m starting them a little early as we want quite large peppers to transplant out in the hoop houses and fields.
I’ve already got my Pro-Mix, which I bought last year, and the containers and flats are in the house. Due to my healing knee, which won’t let me stand for more than 15 minutes, I’ll have Will fill the containers and soak the Pro-Mix with hot water. Then, I’ll be all set to plant, plant, plant.
I’m just under four weeks after my knee replacement and am doing fine. But, of course, I am getting impatient. Yes, I do my exercises and go to rehab three days a week, but I’ll be so glad to dump the walker and feel like a person again instead of an invalid. — Jackie
