Serious Sowing

Visions of produce to come...
There are now 17 flats of onions-related plants enjoying the nearly-spring warmth of the sunroom windows. And on the germination table are 14 flats of solanums sown yesterday. So what am I expecting to emerge from those 14 flats?

250+ Eggplants: Listada de Gandia, Mediterranean ,Nadia, Orient Express, Ping Tung & Rosa Bianca

350+ Peppers: Tiburon, Wenk's Yellow Hots, Ace, Golden Marconi, Islander, Mini Bells, Red Belgian, Red Knight, Sunray

450 Tomatoes: Aunt Ruby's German Cherry, Azoychka, Big Zebra, Blondkopfchen, Cherokee Purple Costoluto Sport, Dr. Wychee Yellow, Golden Rave, Japanese Trifele, Juliet, Mule Team, Paul Robeson, Redfield Beauty, Speckled Roman, Wheeping Carley, White Beauty

All will be well until they begin to germinate, and then the brassicas need to be sown...and then the real adventure begins. The sunroom starts to take on the tropical appearance (and feel) of the Pantanal region of Brazil!

Truly, spring must be on the way!
