I was rearranging my schedule on Google Calendar (because those two sets with the free weights just weren’t going to happen today) when I discovered that today is the last day to plant tomatoes and peppers for this year, and I was out of pepper seeds and soil. So off to Mahoney’s I sped!

I picked up both Bell and Jalapeno pepper seeds from New England Seed Co. I’ve decided I like their seeds best. In addition I found some more seedling trays to replace the ones that mysteriously disappeared last year. They are just the right size for the pellets I had left over from last season. When I run out of those I can use the organic soil I also picked up (and was initially overcharged for).

As soon as I got back I commenced to sow. Each tray has nine slots, so I filled up one tray with Bell peppers and another with Jalapenos. I have had such shit luck with peppers in the past I figure I’ll be lucky if one plant of each lives long enough to produce fruit. :) I also planted a tray of cherry tomatoes but I LURVES dem! IMHO one can never have too many cherry tomatoes.

Naturally, the kick off of the local gardening season has now got me pumped for the rest of the season. *shows off green thumbs and toes* Whoo hoo!
