The Seedling Incubator

The plan this year is to start our entire garden from seed. We started tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, eggplant, and okra at the beginning of February. Here’s where the “operation” takes place: in the basement on a table surrounded by chicken wire (to keep out a cat, who destroyed the seedlings last year). A few fluorescent lights and a space heater later, and we we’re ready to start growing!

A list of what we have:


  • Amana Orange
  • Marvel Striped
  • Oxacan Pink
  • Prize of the Trails Cherry
  • Early Red Chief
  • Roma


  • Pink Bi-colored
  • Italian White
  • Black


  • Czechoslovokian Black
  • Cayenne
  • Purira Chile
  • Hungarian Wax
  • Jalapeno
