Outdoor Peppers 2015

Transplanted out most of the peppers. The remaining two are living outside in their starter pots. I want to give the cabbages at least another week, and those are the smallest of the transplants - they can wait.

The main season line-up is:

upstairs growbox: (eventually) 3 carmen, 1 banana, and 1 lunchbox pepper (1 carmen, 1 lunchbox waitlisted)
in-ground garden: cute stuff gold, a mini bell (first try)
driveway pot: another lunchbox pepper

Wasn't sure until today that I was going to complete transplanting this week, but it is done. All 6 tomatoes are out.

I grew all these from seed, baby pictures on this topic. The two beefsteak transplants are 6 weeks old today, the rest 4 weeks old and look stunted for their age. Lineup:

driveway growbox: bucks county and early girl, both returning favorites

balcony growbox: returning heavy-yielder juliet, and new tiger stripe mix grape tomato

Took a chance and planted the peppers out a bit early, because they were really failing to thrive in their starter pots. Used Miracle Gro Organic potting mix - and I won't do that again. Truly pathetic growth to age 6 weeks. Happily, they've survived in the Growbox, survived bitter cold, and are starting to take off. Slowly.

Postponed planting to after Mother's Day, but apparently... not long enough. I think I may lose all or most of my GrowBox tomatoes. The temperatures didn't quite reach frost this weekend... I think. But the tomato plants were badly damaged. Not sure, but maybe the marginally-fatal cold, heavy winds, and lashing rain left the plants hurt, then the rains made the soil completely waterlogged, and essentially the plants got fertlizer burn. If that made sense...

Aunt Molly's Ground Cherry in Growbox

Planted out my 6-week old aunt molly's ground cherry, sharing growbox with a gretel eggplant and soon-to-sprout zucchini. Really curious about this one! I expected it to look / act like a tomato. Instead, isn't it perfectly matched with its little eggplant buddy? It has its first buds already, looking forward to seeing the flowers.
