It's time to start a new growlog. I planted my tomato and pepper seeds yesterday morning (March 18th).

Here's my tomato list:

- Aker's West Virginia x 1 (from Gardenboy of Tomatoville in 2016; sprouted on 30 Mar)
- Amana Orange x 25 (1 plant from timelesstomatoes.store, 24 plants from my saved seed, descended from Marsha's seed; I planted 8 plants from each of three different fruits saved in 2021 from plant B1; the first one sprouted 28 Mar; the timelesstomatoes.store one sprouted on 31 Mar)
- Aunt Ginny's Purple x 2 (from seed I saved last year from plant A; sprouted 2 Apr)
- Big Cheef x 1 (from GardenBoy of TomatoJunction in January 2020; sprouted 8 Apr)

- Brandywine Pink x 1 (Livingston Seed Co. packet with barcode 048389049593, gifted to me by a local friend; packed for 2011; sell  by 10/2011 LOT 10; wow, these are old--I didn't know until now; I like old seed, though! Sprouted on 30 Mar)
- Carolina Yellow x 1 (Thresh Seed Co. with barcode T0-SL-002, packed for 2022, sell by 12/22, LOT A; sprouted by 4 Apr)
- Cherokee Golden x 1 (from JohnnyRock of Tomatoville, January 2020)
- Cherokee Purple x 1 (from Marsha's 2016 SASE seed offer on Tomatoville)
- Cherokee Yellow x 1 (1 seed; from JohnnyRock of Tomatoville, January 2020)
- Cherokee Yellow Perfection Peach x 2 (each from a different fruit; from seeds saved in 2020 from plant A, fruits #1 and #3; both sprouted 28 Mar)
- Cherokee Yellow Red x 1 (2 seeds; from JohnnyRock of Tomatoville, January 2020)
- Cherokee Yellow Yellow Pear x 1 (from JohnnyRock of Tomatoville, January 2020)
- Frog Princess x 1 (from Julianna of TomatoJunction who got them from Remy / Sample Seed Shop; sprouted on 30 Mar)
- Gold Medal x 1 (from tradewindsfruit; packed for 2015)
- Golden Queen x 1 (from Timeless Tomatoes in 2016; sprouted 9 Apr)
- Hamson x 1 (from hometownseeds.com, purchased in 2021 or 2022; sprouted 28 Mar)
- Italian Heirloom x 1 (from Thresh Seed Co.; packed for 2021; sell by 12/21; LOT B; barcode T0-SL-009)
- Medovaya Kaplya cross F2 x 6 (from seed I saved in 2017; trying for a red round PL sweet cherry; first container sprouted on 29 Mar)
- Mountain Gold x 1 (from Timeless Tomatoes in 2016)
- Orange Banana x 6 (from Timeless Tomatoes; they might be new or from 2016; I don't know; sprouted 2 Apr)
- Orange Caprese x 1 (from Tormato in 2016; marked 2015; sprouted 1 Apr)
- Pinky Blast x 1 (from Tormato in 2016; marked 2015; I think he got them from AlittleSalt)
- Primrose Gage x 1 (from Tormato in 2016; marked 2015; sprouted 1 Apr)
- Snacker-B F4 x 6 (from seeds I saved last year, from plant B; the first one or two sprouted 28 Mar)
- Super Sweet 100 F1 x 1 (Burpee seeds packed for 2013; from Tormato in 2016)
- Vorlon x 1 (from Tormato in 2016; marked 2015; sprouted by 4 Apr)
- Yellow Brandywine x 1 (I don't have a record of where I got these, but the packet and handwriting look exactly like those of Big Cheef; so, I'm guessing GardenBoy of TomatoJunction in January 2020)
- Yoder's German Yellow x 1 (from JohnnyRock of Tomatoville in January 2020)

Here's my sweet pepper list (all Capsicum annuum):
- Canary Bell x 12
- Coral Bell x 9
- Lunchbox Yellow, Orange, and Red x 11 (they're all in a mixed packet; it came with 11 seeds and I planted each seed in its own container; I overseeded the other varieties in this list; sprouted 2 Apr)
- Quadrato Giallo x 1
- Sunbright x 2 (the first sprouted 8 Apr)
- Big Red x 1

So, I have three trays of seeds. Each tray has 36 cells. The cells are a good size.

I added some turmeric to the soil, this time (never done that before). Hopefully that wasn't a bad idea. I read somewhere that it deters pests or something, but if it was a bad idea, at least I didn't add a terrible lot of it. I added food grade diatomaceous earth to the soil, as I did last year (but probably less than last year).

I put some cinnamon on top after watering, to help protect the seedlings against damping off disease (hopefully it's not too early to add the cinnamon; I'm not sure).

I watered in wood ash and monoammonium phosphate as I've done for the last few years.

I plan to start putting the trays outside during the day probably in about a week. For now, they're in the house.

I overseeded most of the tomatoes and peppers.

I didn't end up ordering from Sand Hill Preservation Center (to get another strain of Amana Orange, and more melons/watermelons), or anywhere else, after all. Maybe later. For now, I've got plenty of stuff to grow, and I can breed my own strain of Amana Orange.

I've decided I don't plan to grow any muskmelons, this year.

I do plan to grow watermelons: I plan to seed those in foam cups outdoors after the last frost, some time (that seems to work better than doing it earlier and better than direct-seeding; with direct-seeding, they don't germinate as well, or grow as fast, and volunteer melons growing with the seeded melons make things confusing).

So, let's see what watermelons I do plan to grow (since I didn't order any new ones):

I think I'm just going to grow King Winter and Winter Queen. aI hope to grow many plants. If they cross, I'll know what the cross was. I have Santo Domingo Winter, too, and maybe other Santo Domingo types, but I think I'll save those for next year.

Well, I might still order from SHPC and/or other places before I plant the watermelons. So, I might grow the Wintermelon watermelon, too.

Re: Tomato to-grow list for 2022

Here's my garden map:

Here's my garden map for the year; I plan to edit this periodically, including as we transplant and plant more things.

Notes:
- MKX_ is the project name for my Medovaya Kaplya cross. MKX_A was the F1.
- Broy_ is my Brandy Boy F2+ project (Broy_A is an F2). I grew the F1 that I saved the seeds from.
- Nina_ is my Early Girl growout project, with Nina_A being my most prolific RL in 2017. Nina_A was probably an F3 (but possibly an F4). The F1 was a BonniePlants storebought plant grown in 2014, which had 52-day fruit (in practice) and tasted amazing. The F2 tasted amazing, too, but different.

Main plot (SW-ish)

Row 1
MKX_B F2 tomato (historically the best spot in the garden, production-wise; transplanted 20 May; PL)
Snacker_C tomato (transplanted 20 May)
Snacker_C0 tomato (transplanted 20 May)

v22_A or MKX_B2 F2 tomato (transplanted 20 May; RL; the original transplant died, but another tomato sprouted, this one PL, with the former being RL--whether it was from the same container or the garden soil, I'm not sure, but I'm guessing it's from the same container, since it's PL, and most of the tomatoes there last year were RL; if it's MKX_, then it would have a chance of being RL or PL)
