In the Sun Room

Here’s what’s been happening in the sun room lately.

I started the first few rounds of seed planting. The first round was the cold crops, which I started on February 29th- kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, radicchio, and onions. I moved them outside around the end of March to get them hardy for transplanting into the ground; which should be around the first week of so of April.

Cold crops are growing good. Seeds for tomatoes, eggplant, peppers & tomatillos are in the soil.

Tomatoes, Peppers, eggplant & tomatillos were started from seed on March 15th, and they are all pretty much up and growing. The tomatoes and tomatillos always seem to grow fast compared to the peppers and eggplant. I ordered a few seeds late and started them on March 29th, so they’ll be a little behind. I’m sure they’ll catch up!

• The Ricotto Peru peppers are doing great in the sun room! They are two years old now. They have a few peppers that are almost ready to pick and tons of new flowers. I’m trying my hand (q-tip actually) at being the busy bee, so we’ll see how the pollinating goes!

Yeah for baths in the sun room!
