I tried squash, zucchini and cucumbers...do not recommend. They just got incredibly tall and spindly....and very fast. When I planted them the wind tore them up within days.

Tomatoes and peppers seem to be about the only thing that worked...and I just decided to buy them at Reifels this year.
Yep, Reifels makes things easy. I just bought a grow light, one of these weird color multiple LEDs set in a grid thing off Amazon. Put it all on a shelf in my HVAC/water heater room. Most of the tomato seeds I planted germinated and hardly any of the peppers did, but the house has been on the cool side even in that warmer room. I bought some mostly open pollinated, some known and then maybe some not so well known varieties of tomato seeds that Reifels might or likely wouldn’t have. Reifels does have a great variety of tomatoes. Not sure why I went through the trouble of ordering seed and doing all the rest, just something to mess with and keep busy. Way things have been in 2020, I wanted to make sure I could at least have a backup, more self sufficient plan and test it.

I have about enough larger containers that I’ll transplant the tomatoes into once they outgrow the 3-4” ones they are in now. By that time, the weather should certainly be good enough to put them in the garden.

karstopo Here they are. German Queen is another in the mix. I’ll sort out later what I keep and what I give away.

karstopo I have 21 plants that are about ready to go from the six pack starter cells to 4” or bigger containers. Most are oddball open pollinated types. Some heart shaped, bi colors, some pinks, 1884, mortgage lifter, Pineapple, fishlake oxheart, japanese black trifele, KBX, Hoy, Giant Syrian, etc.

I’ll give some of the sets to friends and then also buy some tried and true bulletproof hybrid sets at Reifels and save a few of the oddballs for myself as a test run. Don’t want to necessarily bank on the heirlooms being all that productive, but it’s nice to have some tomatoes that come in different colors and shapes and flavors.
