Technically I'm a bit early, but the forecast is good and the plants are in big pots so could be moved if necessary, plus they've been hardening off for 2 weeks or so and I'm getting impatient, so....

These Matchbox peppers:

And found a home here, with my cherry tomatoes (the other pepper pot is in the veg. garden:

Now all they need is time, warm weather and no hail!

Those are some amazing plants!

What do you use for lighting?

RE: Outdoor garden season finally comes

Thanks! My indoor setup is two sets of T8 shop lights, each with one warm white and one cool white bulb.

RE: Outdoor garden season finally comes

Interesting. I suspected some sort of HID lighting. I use the standard T12's and they do ok, but, everything is more stretched out than yours.
