Only 4 days to germinate

IMG_1447 IMG_1445Well never say die. Last years garden flourished for awhile. Then the constant deluge of rain followed by an invasion of white fly’s that I could not get under control wiped the entire garden out. Because I started late last year and also because it was a steep learning curve for me I am trying again but earlier and with fewer plants. I’m going to distribute my planting containers in various places this time instead of concentrating them all on the rooftop patio. Then perhaps if the bugs attack they will only damage some of them. Anyway that’s the plan. I should mention that I start with seeds, except for the Garlic which I grow from store-bought household garlic cloves. So far I planted, Problano, Habanero, Cayenne, Jalapeno, Albahaca Grande Basil, Garlic, and Jitimate Bola tomatoes. Should make a good salsa mix when I add Cilantro, Cumin and onions.
