I received an AeroGarden Harvest and a Salsa Garden seed kit as Christmas gifts.

I started the Salsa Garden and only now have I noticed that it is a 7-seed kit (2 tomatoes, 1 pepper and 4 spacers).  Oops.  Well one tomato pod is spaced properly, the other one has the pepper beside it.  Spacers are at the front and in between one tomato and the pepper.  Too late now, we'll see what they do anyway...

We have very hard water here, the hardest in the country, so I set myself up with two big jugs (the kind used in water coolers) of reverse osmosis water and a hand pump.

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

 My latest indoor soil grow under all-CFL lights turned out all-peppers - one carmen, one mini red stuffing pepper. Last winter I had a tomato plus a carmen pepper in this enclosure, and kicked the pepper outdoors when it got warm, so the tomato had the enclosure to itself.

This year's peppers moved outdoors full-time at age 23 weeks, with fruit on board.

 Harvests (to 11/3): terminated just before first hard freeze

carmen: 47 (first green @ 15 weeks, first red @17 weeks)

Soil vs. Aerogarden, Growing Tomatoes and Peppers Indoors

Since Hengis brought it up , I wanted to pull together some results of experiments on growing tomatoes and peppers, in self-watering containers and lights indoors, vs. in the Aerogarden. Commentary in next post - this is just the data collected to look at.

CFL and Soil, Tomatoes and Peppers

This isn't really the LED vs CFL experiment anymore. Continued explorations, I guess, based on what I learned doing the experiment, but with the goal of harvesting them. These plants began life in the Test 2: Tomato & Pepper, LED triband vs. CFL spotlight. Now at 6 weeks, that title doesn't make much sense anymore, since they're now both growing under CFL and LED lights.
