According to Tom and his Almanac, yesterday was an ideal day to plant veggies that grow above the ground. I seeded six cells each of Super Bush tomato, Little Prince eggplant and Jewel Toned bell peppers. I'm planning that these will successfully grow in containers and can come into the greenhouse for at least part of next winter.
The bell pepper seeds are color coded: yellow seed = Admiral Golden Bell, greenseed = Vidi Crimson Bell and Pink seed = Valencia Orange bell. Renee's Seeds provided all these.
I seeded 6 cells each of flat parsley and chives. Seed by a famous vendor, bought by me.
More plans for next winter are to have Pelargoniums. I am seeing hothouse-grown geraniums (pelargoniums) on the Swedish blogs. Speaking of geraniums, I saw a wild geranium bloom on a plant outside today. I pulled it up.

Begonias have bloomed the whole winter inside. Alyssum blooms well inside planted in the edges of pots of non-blooming flowers like asparagus fern. Kalanchoe came into bloom after Christmas and is long lasting. I potted up two Stachytarpeta cuttings that bloomed in water as they rooted and cut off the bloom spikes.
