Tomatoes and Peppers
I finally got my seeds started this weekend. Trying some hybrids this year, along with some tomato grafting rootstock, my favorite heirloom tomatoes and chili peppers. Anybody ever tried grafting tomatoes? The rootstock was over fifty cents per seed! Yikes, hope it works.
Really excited about my Giant Aconcagua sweet peppers, which are really tasty and up to a foot long! Also, Aji Amarillo peppers, a Peruvian pepper that did well last year, medium hot and sweet at the same time. Almost a fruity taste, but enough heat to make my head sweat.
The fusarium wilt did a number on my tomatoes last year, so I'm trying the hybrids, grafting and also a soil drench of Actinovate. I'm excited to find out what, if any, of these methods results in better plants and fruit.
I know we're all sick of this cold and ice/snow/sleet. Longer days and warmer weather are just around the corner, and it's exciting to know that in a couple of months, I'll have some seedlings in the ground!
