Ok, 19 varieties of peppers in flats and now beginning to react to the moisture. It is truly a miracle that a small little flake of stuff will awaken, answer the program Mother Nature left in its DNA and start the cycle of life once again. I never get tired of the show. Some cool heirlooms in the mix this year and it just tickles me to no end to know that these seeds have been gathered, protected and replanted year after year to preserve their unique qualities. Two of the strains I started today started their journey in Italy, who knows how long ago. I have now stepped up and will add my small bit to their history.
