Getting the Vietnamese Hot Pepper seeds going in the greenhouse. Over 90% germination. Seeds from a friend who gave me a few of his very hot peppers. I think 4 of the small peppers generated almost 300 seeds. 100 seeds in this planting

Thanks for the tips, Bob. The cow manure/compost I was referring to is Home Depot's Black Cow. I like that stuff and use it in flower beds too. I do rotate my tomatoes as they are serious nutrient depleters.

I used miracle Grow once and I got very lush, tall tomato plants that didn't set much fruit. Maybe I'll try it again this year.

Thanks again!

Last few years I have localized spring fert to each plant as I go.. (Ckn manure) I plant fast from a few years in the trade so the extra time using chicken manure is minuscule .. .. When I till in fall I add the regular cow manure then..

Added a second 16x10 raised bed this spring .. but these beds are temp.. I have a lot of reorganization to do.. the most primo sun wise part of my .27 acre semi city lot is covered in some Romanesque vision of the prior owners by a Roman lounge area LOL I have a lot of plants to give away and a lot of pavers to remove :( Next spring I rent a small skid steer.. Maybe I can borrow yours LOL
