It's always a challenge, knowing what to sow and having the space to grow them.
What are you growing?
Pikito
Basket of Fire
Etna

Pointy peppers from fresh seeds.
They are at the 'just growing 2 true leaves' stage.

    I'm growing Apache & Spangles chillies, both at the 6/8 true leaves stage. I sowed them in Feb cos' they need a long season to get to fruiting. Spangles is a new one for me - with unusual 'strawberry' shaped fruits that go through a range of colours.

    But I've still got frozen Apache chillies from the last two years. So I really only need one of each plant  :|

    I always grow Jalapeno and for something a bit more daring, this year I'm trying Hotscotch - a mix of habanero and scotch bonnet.
    I've still got a few bags of last years Hungarian Yellow Wax in the freezer.
    For peppers I grow Corno di toro rosso.
    The first true leaves are just showing on all of them
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I'm growing two types:

    6 x Corno di Toro Rosso sweet pepper
    2 x Cayenne hot pepper

    I've grown peppers before but this is my first time starting from seed.
