For the first time in many years I decided to buy plants rather than start them from seed. I had found that too often the plants came up at a time when I was busy and I didn't thin them as I should have, and at other times, weed seeds were sprouting at the same time as what I planted, and it was a chaotic mess.

With purchasing the plants already started, I find that I'm better able to space the plants as I like them to be, although the variety of plants are much more limited. This year I'm trying red sweet peppers once again, but this year I was able to get the plants into the ground and organically fertilized much earlier, so I'm hoping for more than the occasional late (very late) small, ripe pepper...

Also planted kale, red cabbage, broccoli, cherry tomatoes, swiss chard, basil, and parsley.
