The morning light...

So I finally got home from work this morning, I work the night shift - 7pm to 7am. Just thought I'd post some progress as of now. Pretty pleased with the results so far, and thanks again to everyone here who unknowingly helped with my first 'from seed' grow. All seeds hit the soil on Jan 2nd, and here we are now at pretty much 3 months on the dot with the sun coming through nicely here in FL. I think I'm about to start letting them keep flowers on them at this point, and see where the months ahead take me...

...and on a side note, here is one of my other projects - among the many. I started this avocado almost 5 months ago. They sure don't grow like peppers do!!!

Very nice!
Give the avocado a'll outpace the peppers eventually. I constantly have to prune mine to keep it manageable.

Those are very nice. I started mine late January and they are a quarter of that size but I'm also a newb to this so I probably did a lot of wrong things to start with lol. Cant wait to see the end product. Good Job

looking good. gotta love that florida sunshine.

here in tampa the highs are supposed to clear the 80 degree mark within the next few days. it may be overly optimistic but I'm hoping for some pod setting from my overwinters.
