Thanks for explaining that Kiashu. This is an ongoing learning experience for this city boy.

Never heard from Jay how the "stretched" peppers tasted. The ones I ate weren't as juicy and flavorful as I had hoped, but they didn't taste bad. Jay thinks perhaps it was the dirt I grew them in? Maybe Miracle Grow next time? Actually, I've got some very rich composted dirt in my yard with lots of worms and fungi...

I've got lots more seeds so I can keep experimenting. Any advice or pointers are welcome.

Fyi, we have our tomatoes and peppers on casters, and have been rolling them in and out of the carport as weather dictates. So far it's worked well. It's the stuff we grow out in the elements that's taking a beating (especially from the cardinals)...

Now we know to be careful about how much water we give our next crop of green peppers. Mahalo for the tip!

Got my mini-greenhouse built but still tweaking the details. The most time-consuming part of the project was waiting for the paint to dry (it rained a lot early last week.) Damn da birds, damn da snails, damn da dogs (can't damn da rain, but gotta restrict it), we're growing lettuce! Just add dirt...

Up next, a mini-greenhouse for tomatoes, hopefully with scrap materials. Just gotta keep the birds and the rain out.

Jay's keiki potatoes are going gangbusters.

They are growing very good, no fruit yet. I would like to find out how you got the moringa seeds from. The seeds that where started on paper are going great but the others are no shows. When we get back in 10 days they may or may not be up.
