I hope they do as good for everybody else as they did for me.

I hope to have more varieties to share later, it depends on how the fall crop does.

I'm glad the germ rate is good considering I tried a new seed saving method this year. I just finished a germ test and it took 8 days for me but that was in a ziplock wrapped in paper towel.

I just transplanted 5 volunteers from the compost pile, all small with only the first true set of leaves except one.

I am just asking, was that seeds wrapped in a paper towel in a zip lock or a zip lock with the seeds and then wrapped in a paper towel.  I sometimes keep a paper towel in my saved seeds to absorb moisture.

I cut a 4"x4" piece of paper towel, fold it in half then put seeds in it then into a ziplock bag, add enough water to wet the paper towel.

This is growth from a few days ago


here's what they look like now

hey ragun!  your creole seeds are growing gangbusters!  they already have a good sized set of leaves on them and are a few inches tall. i transplanted into some individual pots today to keep them going.  also going to give a few to the young couple across the street.  they just had a baby and he did not have time to start seeds.  i told him i was not sure if they would put out before frost mid nov, but he was willing to try too.  i am putting my creoles into buckets instead of in the bte bed.  that way if it does get cold later on i can move them inside at night.  i am going to use 2 of my green plastic stakes in each bucket to tie them up later on.

about how tall did your plants get?  the web said they can get 6'+ but all the pics/videos i saw online they were not even 5'.

please let me know.

thanks again!
michelle

I had them in a raised bed and they only got up to 5' but had suckers everywhere so trim a few off. Some of the plants had as many as 8 suckers putting on tomatoes. Here's a few pics from earlier this year.

well ragun, i am gonna have to plant these guys out soon.  i buried them up to their necks when i transplanted them a week ago and they are already a few inches tall.   i decided to put a few in the bte bed to try.  my wood supports are still up from summer and i will just use those to tie off to.   i am not going to florida weave them though.  just 1 plant per stake. 

i will keep ya updated on how they do.

the creole plants are still doing great.  they are in their pots out on the porch still.  i am sort of glad...i put 4 of my siberian starts out in the bte bed and 2 have died already.  i think it is just too hot out in the full sun for them.  the good news it that will free up 2 spots for me to put some of the creole starts in there.  it is hopefully going to cool down soon. 

i will go out in the am to get a pic of the creole starts i have on the porch.  you can almost see them in the pic i posted in my indoor garden posting.  they are behind the tiny tim tomato i took a pic of.  :)
