    I have tomatoes from 3 to 8 inches high, so far still in pots. Will be transplanted to garden in another couple of weeks. Still have onions, kale and turnips in the ground now. Will also do some cukes and put my jalapeño plants in the ground too.

    The middle of May we'll get started here. Like every year, peppers: Thai Dragon or Kung Pao. This year, I think I'll do Thai Dragons and Seranos.

    Here's last years' start and finish:

    And an example of the process:

    To give an idea of yield, I get a quart container of ground peppers out of those plants by mid Sept. when they are toast as we get out first hard freeze.

    Beautiful plants Abelman and Smokin Joe!

    I brought a small tomato plant into the house for the winter.....
    It's doing really well, so far I count 11 small tomatoes on it.

    I'm sure ready for spring.
