If anyone is interested in the peppers, certain ones need 100 days or more to reach full maturity,so you would need to start them in the house, around the middle of April, all tomatoes are indeterminate,mike

Next year there will be more seeds to offer, as I always order some heirloom and grow a few plants,(away from the main garden to avoid cross pollination) for seed generation, hopefully next year I will also have, root cultivars of blackberries, gooseberries, currants, raspberries,boysenberries, strawberry runners, german horseradish roots, and just maybe 1 to 2 foot tall fruit tree and nut tree saplings for sale,mike

Well today, I got a call from Luis Sosa the premier pepper grower in all of Mexico, he informed me they have developed a Jalapeno that will grow either very wide at the shoulder or very long in length, typically the blocky form will be about an inch and half wide by four to five inches in length, the the tapered ones can grow to be 6 inches but only about an inch wide, he is sending me about 200 to 250 seeds, I will part with them in 10 seed lots, free of charge,mike

This is the first year having my own garden so is it ok if I swapped store bought seeds? I m interested if so.

Josh, good to see ya back, willing to swap any seeds, as long as they are not genetically altered, or 2nd strain hybrids,mike

I just read over 100 bad reviews on Farmers Seed Company about how they will and constantly rip off there customers without any refund, just runaround.. After not finding a single positive , but pages or warnings not to order anything from Farmers ,I will not be ordering anything from them and am informing the good folks on this site to do a search on them and read all the reviews from very angry former customers.
On a good note I just got about 200 honeydew seeds out of this big melon i bought. :) and still have a muskmelon to cut open too.

Rmember folks when starting peppers and tomatoes from seed, optimum temp for germination is between 70 to 75 degrees, I find the closer the temp is to 80 degrees, the germination is about 100% most of the time,mike

I've got several hundred varieties of seeds stashed, though many date back a decade or more. Was very surprised this month when I started up about 30 heirloom tomato varieties from 1998 seed, and over 1/3 germinated. Just put them in old ice cube trays and wrapped with plastic in front of the heating vent for several days. Let me know if you're looking for any rare tomatoes.
Besides the usual peppers, I'll be trying out for the first time some Purira hot peppers (about 1/3 the heat of habaneros), Rellenos, and Jimmy Nardello Cubanelles.

Got the seeds Mike Thanks ! I think Ill try so start some in my glass chamealeon tank its almost ninety in there with the lamps on.
Ive got a silver leopeard tropical trying to seed out now in the house I hope they develop right so i can give them out. Other wise all I have is marigold and fruit seeds I buy from Meijers, which im sure are far from non altered. Ive got to put in a order from a heritage seed house this year.
