The 2012 Monks’ Vegetable Garden officially started on Sunday, February 19, 2012
Here is what we planted:
12 Cherokee Purple Tomatoes – I saved the seeds from the biggest, healthiest looking tomato I picked last year.
6 Red Beauty Hybrid Sweet Bell Peppers
6 Florida High Bush Eggplants
6 Key West Hybrid Cubanelle Peppers
6 Anna Russian Tomatoes – It is a little early to plant regular tomato plants but I want to do an experiment too see how well they grow if planted earlier and kept under grow lights.
And, here they are:
I planted the seeds in the Jiffy Greenhouse filled with seed pellets. Just add water and they expand and it becomes a perfect seed growing environment. Save the greenhouse trays for next year and you just have to buy the pellet refills. Keep the planted seed pellets in a warm area. You don’t have to worry about sunlight until they sprout.
