Well - it might not have it, but it’s prevalent and you can’t tell until it’s too late...

Yeah no doubt. I have to imagine it would be a pita type things to get rid of too.

I don’t plan on planting any though. If I were though, I’d reconsider based on what you told me

re: 2020 Garden Thread
For anyone looking, I have Ivy Kinchen from Hollis Kinchen trucking deliver an 8 yard load of garden soil to me earlier this week in Prairieville. It was better than the stuff I have gotten in the past with virtually no sticks or wood chips in it. The total for the load ended up right at $350.

Where did he get the soil from?

Not sure. Said he mixes it himself, with a different blend for vegetables vs flower beds. Found his name from the 2019 garden thread.

If you wanted to can this recipe, would you add a cup of vinegar to cook down or do you think the limes have enough acid in them?

re: 2020 Garden Thread
I just started tomatoes Thurssy night. Started peppers on the 2nd. Several of my older seeds didn’t germinate so I ordered new ones. Will have to restart those varieties this week. I’m going to top most of my pepper starts anyway so I should still be good with time. Target plant out is mid March.

Am I too late if I just ordered tomato seeds from Reimer?

Got it. Going with different tomatoes this year and starting from seed for the first time. I expect it will be a bit of a learning curve.

re: 2020 Garden Thread
Yeah definitely not. Depending on when your target plant out date is you could technically be early still ha. Mine is mid-March and I still need to start some more pepper seeds. Topping peppers will also set them back a couple of weeks. That said, March could come around and it could be too cold to plant, so who knows.

Yeah I guess I'll start here. Time to research and figure out a targeted plant date

That sucks. I still have a few romaine growing. They haven’t bolted yet. Maybe I should pull em.

re: 2020 Garden Thread
Only 1 of my 6 did. I'll pull it and hopefully the cooler weather coming in will keep the rest from following.

I started creole tomato, grande jalapeno, better belle, and santana eggplant last week and all are coming in great. They were from my Reimer buy last year so I was surprised that I got near 100% germ rate. The heating mat was the difference maker.

re: 2020 Garden Thread
Lesson learned with my germination problem this year. The new seeds I bought had nearly 100% germination rate. Last year's seeds were probably 85%. I planted big red, corno di toro giallo, and jimmy nardello seeds from 3 years ago. The ones that did germinate took a few days longer than the new seeds, but I only had about 50% germination rate. Looks like my method of storing seeds only keeps them good for a couple of years.

FYI, I keep mine in zip lock bags with silica gel packs in them.

Do you store them at room temp or somewhere cooler?

Room temp. They stay in a drawer in my kitchen.
