I have asparagus, snap peas and onions growing outside.

Inside, under lights, I have: tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, basil, and parsley.

Soon I'll be adding melons, summer squash, and pumpkins.

Broccoli grows during the winter here.

We are extending our garden area so we can grow more winter vegetables.

tomatoes, hot peppers, sunflowers, squash, cucumbers, tomatillos, corn, beans, basil, tarragon and eggplants. All in all, about 30 different varieties, with peppers and tomatoes making up the bulk of them.

I don't have a greenhouse or the discipline to start seeds. I do start some direct in the ground, but too cold for that yet (snow this morning).

I have about 7-8 varieties of tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers. Will be adding squash and cantaloupe soon, but most of those I just direct sow. It's warm enough to do that now but I'm almost afraid to!

I started many perennials winter sowing, I also have snow peas, various species of beans, okra, lettuce, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, watermelons, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, winter squash, summer squash, radishes, beets, corn, carrots, collard greens, cucumber, turnips, mustard greens, brussel sprouts, onions, green onions, leeks, spinach, quinoa, amaranth, broccoli, cauliflower, and various cooking and medicinal herbs. I have a few varieties of hardneck garlic bulbils filling out and I also started many tropicals and berries. A few annuals, but far less in comparison.

I have a greenhouse, and it is full of hundreds of seedlings/plants right now that I have started, including 8 different types of pansies/violas. I am obsessed with starting all things from seed. This year, I'm pleasantly surprised to see how easy it is to start gaillardia from seed. (Big seed/fast grower). I also pluck a lot of seedlings from the ground outside (Johnny jump ups, digitalis, kiss me over the garden gate, larkspur), separate them, and nurture them in 4 inch pots in the greenhouse, and then transplant them elsewhere in the yard.

Don't have the tomato list at hand however I did seed 10 different varieties in a standard flat; some are local favorites and some new ones that promise heat tolerance or "old fashion" flavor"; they're ready to plant out in the garden as soon as the ground dries out from the heavy rain currently falling! Hope this spells the end of our long drawn out drought!!!

Ive started indoors tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplants, Jerusalum Cherry, Inca Berry, Tomatillos, Chia, and Basil. Thats all I can think of ATM.

Bernie-do you have a list posted of the types of hot pepper plants you have? Just curious.

Garden-Im glad I didnt get my plants out before last night Im afraid they would have drowned or been beaten to death. That storm was something else. As soon as the soil dries out Im ready, I have some hardened off. Get those in the ground then round 2.

I have tomatoes, peppers, & eggplants under grow lights with at least 1 set of true leaves. Spinach & peas planted & sprouted. Just harvested 2 full grocery bags of mustard greens that self sowed. Froze up 4 qts. cooked. Kale, collards, & green onions wintered over. Could be planting more since the weather has been extremely warm for this time of year. In fact, I could be placing my seedlings outside during the daytime, but we've had a pretty strong March wind blowing around this warm air.

Tomatoes: Big Beef, Ropreco, Great White, Zapotec, Indigo Rose (new for me this year), Orange Oxheart, and Sungold.
Chili Peppers: Chili de Agua, Hot Lemon, New Mexico Joe (new for me this year).
The tomatoes have all sprouted, and some already have their second set of leaves. Only the New Mexico Joe peppers have sprouted so far.
Except for the hybrids (Big Beef and Sungold), and new ones, all other seed saved from previous years.

I'm starting very small... Planted Mexico Midget tomatoes inside yesterday. All 26 seeds! LOL I"ll give the extra seedlings away if I have any. I am planning on planting two or three seedlings in my 4x10 dog run. That should keep the varmits out. I don't have a dog anymore and the kennel has been used as a green house and one time as a chicken coop, just for a couple of chickens.. It comes in pretty handy but is hard to move. I have someone take it apart to move it. I'm trying container gardening this year, except for the tomatoes. They are going in the ground. We had snow and freezing weather just a few days ago... Snow is all gone now and it's warming up a bit.

Still debating on whether or not to try to start a few tomatoes, bell peppers, and eggplants, as I expect to be awfully busy when the time comes to plant them outside.

My Heirloom Eggplant (Long Purple), Peppers (Hungarian Yellow Banana, Jalapeno & Anaheim) and tomatoes (Beefsteak, Mexico Midget & Tasmanian Chocolate) are sown in little mini greenhouses on my homemade soil heaters on my kitchen porch. I think that's it for the indoor sowing for me this year, unless I decide to do some flowers. Everything else will be direct seeded after our last frost which should be mid to late May (please!!!).

Started Paonazza d'Egitto beets, mixed radishes, and Baltimore carrots. Am making an incubarium out of an old crockpot liner (perforated for drainage) and its glass lid, a superb way to start tiny seeds. You fill 2/3 with potting soil, water well with boiled water, allow to cool, and then mix your tiny seeds with sugar and sprinkle on the surface. You add the glass lid, put in a temperate spot, and you won't have to water again until they germinate.

Meanwhile, the old heating unit is good, too. Fortunately, they can't read:
