Orlando Veg Seedling Giveaway

abnorm(Orlando)February 2, 2013

I like starting seeds.....I've got a decent lighting set-up and a small but devoted fan-base of Ya'll as veggie lovers....My Sister and Hubby want a variety of sweet frying pepper plants ......Em and Claude and Sherrie and Amel want those tasty 'maters and a few jalapenos and such....

Now Maxine set the bar this year.....she said "Show me the HEAT!".....so with those marching orders and Silvia's generous seed locker.....I give you the "2013 Downtown Orlando Pepper Giveaway"

HOT Pepper plants include:

Scotch Bonnet
Habernaro (seeds from a fresh pod)


Also a few mixed Jalapenos available

And a few extra singles: sweet pepper or seasoning pepper orphans

Eggplant seedlings include: Orlando and Black Beauty....
(I'm trying to keep my mature Orlando eggplant for a second season)

Tomatoes ?.....Not many unclaimed extras this time around

They're all in clear 8/10 oz cups....easy to see the roots.....They are under the lights but itching to GO! You'll need to move them in/out as the weather permits .....hmmm what did Phil the groundhog say ?

I'll try to have some plastic cat litter jugs w/holes to carry your treasures home....makes moving 5 cups at a time easy......

Colonialtown North neighborhood.....32803....
Weekends...Nites...also sometimes Tues and Thurs

Send an E-mail to my name/profile for more info

Hi Doug and Pam

What a generous veggie seedling offer! I still have your purple jalapeno. Are you going to smoke some of the peppers? Don't forget that hopefully we will have a get together/party/swap around April. Aji amarillo chili powder is very difficult to find, I always have one in the house for cooking.
Seedlings look very healthy!

I know I'm a little late, but are there any eggplants left? I never heard of Orlando before, and would love one (or two!) Let me know, I'm a newish (2nd year) gardener in Winter Springs...

Wow, I feel like I just won the lottery, thanks Doug! I am impressed with your garden, it's so well set up!

I really appreciate it and hopefully I will do you proud. I am sure my husband will freak out it I can actually get a tomato to grow this time, and I am going to look forward to those peppers!

Abnorm, I have some Dr. Bronner's I haven't been using. What is your mixture ratio?

Nothing scientific for measuring the soap.....generally I squeeze a bit in a hand spray bottle and fill with water....shake and spray

Probably about a half-ounce per gallon if using the pump sprayer

You don't want a heavy soap application to remain in the bright sunshine.....a morning shower is necessary to avoid "sunburn"

The Peppermint smells so nice while you're killing the little buggars.........
