Picked the first peppers off my plants today.

I planted a small garden. 2 tomato plants and 6 green peppers plants.

Next year I'd like to go bigger but I never seem to have time. It's always next year. I enjoy growing stuff but time is always am issue.

Those look good! Got a few planted here but I don't know if they survived this storm we've had today. It was thrashing the garden really hard.

Those are Walmart green pepper plants.

How do I set the seeds up to plant for next year? Do I just put them in a cup to plant? I've never tried that

If you're not gonna plant em now, just flick on a paper plate then I guess they'll store ok in a labeled envelope. Don't think they need to be stored cold but maybe we'll hear from somebody else. I got 4 from Walmart too and planted. A few weeks later seed cores were donated from  the lady of the kitchen. I took em right out and made shallow grooves between the mature plants sprinkled them in, covered they got watered when everything else did. I was surprised at how many shoots I had. I must've separated 1/8th of the amount and have about 10 new plants starting to do their thing. Nothing beats a failure but a try, I'm no master gardener but I squeeze some time either on the way out or in the eve. Gotta have it! GoodLuck!

Thanks I'll have to try that out. The Walmart plants have been healthy and produced nice plants.

Mine are just starting to bloom too, but once they make up their minds they usually produce well. Planted New Ace, a sweet pepper this year, along with assorted Jalapeno and chilies.

   see how the corn stalks look a little curved?  That's because after the big storm a week and a half ago the corn looked like this...

I got my first zuchinni the other day, wife's cucumbers should be picked today or tomorrow.

I am the same, our 'maters are growing like weeds, but very few blooms and I see not tomatos yet....the rain is slowing them down producing fruit, they need heat and humidity. The other squash will be coming on soon, already have some small butternut on the vine and hopefully the scallop squash will be producing here soon
