wait. what's this about hybridization affecting the flavor of the fruit that was grown from a non-hybrid seed? i really don't think that's how it happens. do you have a study on this? that's similar to saying that a woman's uterus will have different characteristics depending on the father of a fetus. (unless of course you're talking about the spiciness of the seeds, which i could see possibly happening, and makes sense.)

I am so jealous. I'm hoping the current owners of our new house GTFO before our move date so I can start my garden before we move. Since i'm starting from scratch, I have to build everything before I can even plant.

it occurs to me that the bells getting hot in this generation must be a myth, now that i think about it. but the hot peppers staying hot would be due to the ?pith? around the seeds in that generation staying true, right?

Interesting question. I'm guessing that the heat of the seeds might be compromised a bit, but you probably wouldn't notice any difference in the combined heat of the fruit/pith/seed. Planting the seed for a second generation would be a gamble.

I set six pumpkin seeds to germinate and two have done so in a week. I've got a few seedlings growing on windowsills at the moment - cherry and beef tomatoes, chillis, sweet peppers, spinach and mixed lettuce. The lettuce and spinach don't look so good but everything else looks pretty robust.

Well, I have pretty much NOTHING because of the snow this week (IN MAY!!!) and the non-Spring so far. I am soo soooo bummed. I probably can't even get started (AGAIN) until after this weekend. The only good thing about my garden is that this little bunny has been living with me!

OMG Bunny! I wish I had a bunny!

Its my first year gardening, and I started kale, spinach, chard, broccoli, tomatoes, beets, summer squash, zucchini, eggplants, marigolds, chamomile, basil, coriander, mint and sunflowers from seed, and so far everything seems to be doing well, but I haven't transplanted them yet. Kind of nervous as to how they'll transition....

Bunnnnyyyyyyyy!

T, this is the first year I've transplanted seedlings I started myself, and I'm pleasantly surprised at how well all of them have done.

I've got the following going right now:
Cilantro - in pots and in the ground
Tomatoes - 3 in the ground (2 cherry types, and a green heirloom), 1 in a container (a beefsteak type heirloom)
Hyssop - in a container
Lettuces - Red Velvet (the most beautiful thing) in the ground and a pot, and Marveille des Quatre Saisons in the ground
Snap peas - in the ground, producing now and hopefully for another 4-5 weeks though we are having a really hot snap
Green beans (pole beans!) - in the ground - I have um, 11 of these going, and no one in my family likes green beans but me. The plantings were staggered at least!
Melons - Noir des carmes - 1 hill of 2 plants, but I also have another one waiting to be transplanted
Cucumbers - "Bushy" - waiting to be transplanted
Hot peppers (Rooster Spur) and bells (Garden Sunshine), waiting to be just a little bigger so I can transplant them
Garlic - in the ground
Carrots - Paris Market - in a container

And I have one white cypress plant (no other seeds germinated!) and some columbine seeds cold stratifying in the fridge.

I tried it once - my microclimate was too cold for it. So...it needs quite a warm climate to do well. But I can't grow yard long beans or melons either.
