Red Manzano Pepper plant

Pictures of one of the new variety of peppers I’m growing this year.  Very different looking from the more common pepper varieties!

And my current crop of seedlings

Most of which will be going out to the greenhouse today.  Then I’ll be starting tomatoes.

    Hi Ruth! 🙂 So happy to see those plants! We’re still buried under snow, I can’t wait to see your crops this year. I’m going to try to get myself a greenhouse this year too!

    • Ping from Ruth:

      That little porch of yours wouldn’t be a bad spot for a small greenhouse. Nice and sheltered. Though I don’t know what it gets for sun, which would make a difference.

      These plants are a large portion of how I make it through the winter, I start craving GREEN PLANTS in the middle of January….

        Actually Ruth, Alex and I are moving soon!!! We decided NO MORE RENTING…we have our pre-approved mortgage and basically have a few more months to find our property/home and move. I”m looking forward to a nice sunny area for a garden and a greenhouse for the more fragile plants! I hope I can pull it all off! Oh, I’m CRAVING green…it’s unbearable!!! 🙂

    Those are interesting leaves for a pepper plant. Looks like you have a good crop going.
