Eureka!

Finally! I found my eggplant seeds. I have been going nuts looking for them. I usually keep all my seeds in the same place but not this time. I found them yesterday in a container of information labels. Apparently, I put them in this container to remind myself to make labels for them and then I forget they were there.

Right now I have 18 varieties of eggplant seed. I will probably add a few more varieties in a couple of weeks.

Depending on germination rates we should have 28 varieties of chilies this growing season. We have the seed for six different types of Habaneros, a yellow Scotch Bonnet and the second hottest pepper in the world the Trinidad Scorpion.

Counting My Eggs Before They Hatch?

nn

Yesterday I conducted an inventory of my seeds for the upcoming growing season. I have 97 different varieties of heirloom, open pollinated and hybrid tomatoes.

I will start to germinate these seeds in about a month. I do not grow, in my fields, every variety I start from seed and I do not sell every variety of tomato seedlings that I grow.

I acquired several new varieties to try this year. I usually give new varieties three years to prove themselves before giving them the thumbs up or down .
