what i’m growing for you this spring

black hungarian pepperIf you’d like to read about all the fun varieties of tomatoes I’ll be growing for you, along with peppers and cucumbers and herbs and more, please visit my google form: Seedlings and Custom Seedlings Pre-Order Form. Doesn’t that sound ominous. It’s not really, though, except that there is a lot of scrolling involved. It gives you the option to pre-order, like the name suggests, and to custom order as well.

The photo on the left is a favourite; the plant is a Black Hungarian Pepper plant. A woman who had bought a plant or two last spring told me recently that she wants to buy more this spring, because she really liked them. Not too hot, they look a bit like a black jalapeno. I think the leaves are beautiful with the purple variegation.

I thought I was doing something wrong, though, the first time I grew them! I didn’t know to expect the purple colour. Usually purple leaves are a sign of being too cold, or a phosphorus deficiency. I think I might have dosed them a bit of bonemeal just in case, but they didn’t really need it.

I guess what I’m trying to say, is that these peppers are on the list. Along with a few other varieties of hot pepper. There are more hot pepper varieties than sweet pepper! There are just so many to choose from, it’s hard to whittle it down.

I’ll also be growing a few different types of edible flowers, as well as 5 different kinds of basil!

Please tell me what you’d like to grow!

I’ll draw a name randomly from those who leave a comment here about what they’d like to grow, and the winner will receive a seedling of their choice for free.

Comments close Friday at Noon.

  • I think we would like to try and grow OSC’s Patio tomatoes. We do not have good soil or a spot right now to start a garden, so an indoor plant seems like a great idea. I’m new to all of this!

  • Hi Kristin,
    It looks like you’re the winner!! I will email you a coupon for a free seedling that you can redeem in the spring. Thanks for commenting 🙂
