You have been busy. I bought tomato seeds (super beefsteak), sweet bell peppers (early crisp), Cucumber (straight eight), Cantaloupe (Hale's best Jumbo) and Watermelon (sugar baby). I also bought some Loofa seeds to try for fun. I'll be putting in my tomato seeds at the beginning of March along with the peppers and Loofa. The cucumber and melons will start at the end of April. That will be the extent of produce for this year. All the other seeds I bought are flower seeds of different kinds. Including perennial sweet peas. I'll look forward to seeing your photos.

I've written it elsewhere, but I'll add it to your blog too. There should be a mat at the bottom of your propagator - and a small round 'funnel' at one corner. Use this to water the trays and pots of compost with the seeds in - when the mat feels dryish, pour more water down the funnel. Then the pots and trays get water from the bottom!

I grew Cherry Toms last year and 2007 Juliano and the crop was fantastic still picked them in November! Those are the only ones I'll grow now....neat plants with lots of trusses full of tomatoes!
