Got Peppers

jbest123(Zone 5 PA)March 11, 2009

All of the garden seeds are planted and the peppers started poking there heads out this morning. The soil blocks seem to be working great. It is just a little early for zone 5 but if things do not work out, I can reseed and give it another go.

Could you please direct me towards more information on soil blocks?

Check my journal and/or do a Google search. There is a ton of info out there.

Mine are doing great as well, thanks to John's maker. I think I jumped the gun a bit too, but keeping the room where my light system is, cool has helped slow growth and create stocky plants.

I even am trying to plant cukes in them, even though it's early to go outside. Hehe too much fun not to experiment.

I'm falling a bit behind, but figure I'll have some kind of light system up and running by next week. Turns out the 4' shop lights won't fit in my plant window, I only have 46" wide area there. I'll try to set something up in my garage, I guess. Right now I'm concentrating on keeping the remaining tomatoes and peppers alive and healthy...lost one tomato and had some frost damage to two others, but one survived the trip and the two frost bitten ones seem to be recuperating just fine. Only four of the pepper plants survived, but they are looking good...and I only wanted four of that variety anyway, so it's not a great loss. We hit a real blizzard in Northern NV, and even though we took the plants into the hotel room, the damage was already done. The picnic cooler just didn't insulate them as well as I thought it would. Boy dog had to have surgery on his ear today, and girl dog has to go in for blood work Friday. Charter Cable comes tomorrow to install a bundle (phone, cable, internet) so I guess I'm looking at the weekend to get my soil blocks made and planted.

Granny, it sounds like the last week is a good one to be over with, at least you got home safely. Welcome back. John
