Get excited, The Dig In is doing it’s first ever giveaway! But before we get into that, here is a little pepper update for you…
The baby bell peppers are doing quite well after several days under grow lights.
Initially, I had poor germination due to old seeds so I germinated several packets of seeds in mason jars. Take a look at how I did that here. I didn’t grow peppers in our Spring garden but we miss them and they’re just too pricey!
This is what the seed tray looked like 7 days ago with freshly transplanted seedlings germinated in mason jars:
And today, under the grow lights, the peppers are looking so happy and strong:
Looking a little closer, you’ll see that it’s time to thin the seedlings. There are two seedlings in this compartment competing for water, nutrients and space:
We would like to share some of these peppers with you and are offering a giveaway this week. The giveaway is for 4 bell peppers!
Plus check our Facebook page and Twitter feed throughout the week for more chances to win.
You know you can’t wait to add some free pepper transplants to your fall garden!
Update: The giveaway contest is now closed. Congrats to Anna for winning the pepper transplants! Check back in the spring for a tomato transplant giveaway.
