I bought some of these long Thai chili peppers from the Asian market and am saving the seeds. I don’t know if they would actually grow, but it would be neat to find out.
The seeds pictured here is only 1/2 of what I got from one pepper. There was at least 60 healthy looking seeds. The peppers are really hot and I have the feeling they are true heirloom variety. So no GMO here.
It’s seed catalog season… I didn’t realize there were so many varieties of watermelons as there were of tomatoes.
September songs from maybe a decade or two ago. Still brings back memories.

I grew the Calabaza squash (Cuban/Indian Pumpkin) from seed back in May. Then planted them in June. I didn’t really prepare a proper bed for growing, just sort of found a spot near the flowers and experimenting with it.
Now it is middle of July and the plant is growing very fast. The leaves are gigantic and the vines are long. I may have to cut them back when a few squash/pumpkins are bigger. I also didn’t want the vines to smother the hibiscus and zinnias.
So happy to see a little pumpkin. I counted 5 pumpkins so far. This one is being kept from touching the ground.
