Planting into Bales day

Today we planted into the well-rotting bales:

2 pink ponderosa tomatoes

2 brandywine tomatoes

3 Cherokee purple tomatoes

2 Green Zebra Stripe tomatoes

1 tomatillo from OSH (good old Orchard Supply Hardware)

1 yellow pear tomato - because we love their silly selves


1 Pimiento del Padrone, which is apparently only propagated in North

America by our source, Happy Quail Farms in East Palo Alto (we got

this start at the UCCE master gardener's sale a few weeks ago).

1 pepper "Sparky" about 5 on a 1-10 hotness scale whatever that means

(it's not apparently related to a scoville scale which is I think


1 pepper Pimiente d'Esplette ditto for midrange warmth

4 sweet bell peppers, a white, a yellow, an orange, a red, that were

mixed up by the time I got them home from aforementioned sale --

"they will announce themselves" said the propagater;

2 Nu-Mex chilis

2 Sweet Hungarian pimientos (Renee's Garden seeds)


some little bitty lettuces we got at the plant swap today (upon also

getting rid of many extra pink ponderosa and purple cherokee tomato

starts, hurrah)


2 zukes - white summer squash "lolita" hybrid

1 long Japanese dark purple eggplant

there were 7 bush bean starts in the two 4" packs I brought home from

OSH; six of them will definitely make it, one we're not sure of but

planted in hopes.
