Seedlings to Plants

I am not sure when the name officially changes from seedlings to plants, but I think we have made it!
Truckin' Man has done an outstanding job at getting us ready for the garden this year.

Broccoli is finally catching up. These are one of the plants we had pinched off because they had gotten to leggy or spindly.  The Goliath variety is doing much better, and the Italiana is not far behind.  


Cauliflower is big and healthy.

Just look at this cabbage! The green cabbage is getting huge! Red cabbage isn't far behind. Some of the red cabbage are further behind because we had to pinch them back as well.

The peppers are Truckin' Mans pride and joy right now. 
Jalapeno and  Bell peppers are so happy.

Carolina Reaper and Devil's Tongue peppers are also coming along. These are NOT for us to eat. 
Just growing them for fun!

 And, finally the Amish Paste Tomatoes. The least impressive of the plants, but still doing well!

As a note to our progress, and steps taken, 
this past week we did start using Miracle-gro to give them some added vitamins.

Have you started any plants yet?


  1. It looks like you're going to have a great garden! My brother planted some Carolina Reapers too. It should be interesting!

  2. Looking Good! Your are doing a great job keeping the plants healthy. :-)

  3. Wow! This is IMPRESSIVE! These plants look healthy and happy!

  4. That is so cool Kris! I wish I had planted some seedlings....maybe next year I will give this a try. I hope you make this a regular series on your blog! Looking forward to seeing the progress...and the recipes! : )

  5. Your plants look great! I'm so excited to plant. I can get away with planting my peppers straight into the ground here in Kentucky, and I love that. I'm not so handy with transplants yet. I am going to get my tomato starts today, I'm really excited about that! I can't wait to see what you make with all your produce, summer is just the best! :-)

  6. looking good! they're looking FAR better than ours, though we're still in the early stages. here's hoping we're even half as successful as you. :)

  7. I see that spring is working its magic on your garden.
