Ready, Set, Go.

I've decided to start sowing a portion of my Chilli/Pepper seedlings now (late February) instead of June/July when I'd normally start. The reason is that I want to try and get some sizable plants by the time Spring rolls around, giving me a head start with my stock plants that I'll use for seed saving purposes. I think I have about 30+ varieties sown and currently have about half germinated as sowing has been staggered.

Here's something that always amuses people, "Tricots", or seedlings with 3 seed leaves or cotyledons. Of the 7 seedlings in the photo, 3 are tricots.
