I planted 4 tomato plants, 2 jalapenos, 2 habaneros, 2 red pepper and green bell peppers in my 4'x8' plot. Just a month later I have tomatoes and peppers on the vine. Amazing.

I had an amazing year last summer. 8' tall tomato plants bursting with fruit.

At first frost in November, I had 6, 5-gallon buckets full of green tomatoes.

Never had a garden produce like that...ever!

I hope to make salsa with them.

I'm so jealous! Forget hail, I have a far worse storm go through my tiny back yard everyday. Three boys, all under 4, who like to "help"...I can't grow a thing. Wink

Maters, Better Boys, romas, cherrys
Peps, Jalapeņo, Habenero, and I actually found 1 pablano/ancho plant, too lazt to start my own seedlings.

Cukes died, but those were for wife so thats ok.

I could buy all this stuff locally, but the quest to be totally from scratch drives me.

Family would get attached If I tried to raise pigs and we'd wind up with 1000 lb pets.

I'm still upset that I missed out on the good planting weather... sadly my yard is still a white trash paradise after I had a Hot Tub "emergency" at the end of November that resulted in having to tear apart a good chunk of my deck and eventually having to race to replace the tub before everythign froze.
As it was, I still had to tent the motors and use portable heaters to keep the ice at bay.

Typically I only grow Jalapeno's and red chili's, but this year I was going to get something a touch hotter. The clean up should be done this week and hopefully this coming weekend is just as nice.
It's amazing how much a small garden can produce if it's placed properly and given enough water. Last summer I had tomoto plants that were almost like shoulder high shrubs.

I cut the bottom off a gallon milk jug then cover smaller plants leaving the lid off. It acts like a mini green house.

Here in Central MA we got everything in the ground a few days ago.

70 tomato plants
Cukes galore (for pickling)
Brussel sprouts
brocolli
yellow squash
acorn squash
peas
beans
bell peppers,
chile peppers
jalopeno
habernro

and this year we got the bhut jolokia, and a few other exotics. Last year I tried to grow the bhut's from seeds (and paid a pretty penny for the seeds) they geminated, but no peppers. Evil or Very Mad

this year I had plants shipped to the house, and I'm hopping they'll produce this year.

any one have any luck with th bhut jolokias? Are they all they are cracked up to be?

CB, those habeneros have a LONG growing period, next year try getting them started inside and transplant when the weather allows. You'll easily triple your output this way. Also, I'm sure you already know, but the first hint of frost and they are done.

I buy my plants already 3 or 4 inches tall from a nursery,I plant every year on May 24 weekend,this is as early as you can plant in Toronto and still might be taking a chance,have never had a problem with low yield,my biggest problem is insects eating the leaves when they are young,I have to use a mild people friendly insect wash on them for a couple weeks.

10-4 CB. Even here in SC I can't plant mine from seed after the threat of frost and still get a full growing season. Last year when the first frost hit I had 284 peppers in various stages of maturity on my 8 plants. Also, my bugs must not like the hot stuff 'cause they eat the crap out of everything but the habeneros, lol!
