Final Tomato and Pepper Plantings

On Sunday I planted 15 Roma Tomato plants using the same spacing as last year which seemed to work well. I mixed compost, lime pellets and fertilizer together and added a few trowels of it to each of the plants.

On Monday, Memorial Day, I rototilled the bed for the peppers, after scattering lime pellets and fertilizer on the surface. I had previously spread a bag of peat moss on the surface.

I planted the following:

  • 8 Yellow Banana Peppers
  • 8 Lady Bell Peppers
  • 4 King Arthur Peppers
  • 4 Valencia Peppers
  • 4 Melrose Peppers
  • 8 Gypsy Peppers

I planted a Marion Heirloom Tomato which finishes the Tomato planting. Also I planted some long-season Basil seeds in the herb garden by the deck and 9 Basil plants in the herb garden along the fence.
