Default Up and Running in Oz

Greetings from Downunder.


My Spring/Summer season is up and running, with something different this year, two crops of seedlings started, consisting of tomatoes, eggplants, Capsicums & Peppers. This year I've grown a crop of seedlings for a pre-planned seedling sale, with my own separate crop finally pricked out in the last week.


I'm growing some old favorites again, plus some newer varieties which made their way to the top of the seed tin after a recent clean out of older seeds. Last season, my own cross Macalister actually threw a pink tomato as well as yellow tomatoes, so I’ll be growing both of these to see what comes out of the pink mainly. Both yellow and pink were great flavored tomatoes last season, getting their sweetness from Sweet Ozark Orange, my pollen donor in the cross. My wife liked both of these tomatoes, so will probably make the list again.



I'll post more as the seedlings from the first crop move out of my hothouse.

Have started 24 different Capsicums and chili's and some lettuce and mustard greens myself McSee. Getting good germination considering that it's only been a week for the capsicums and chili's.
