Vinca Pacifica (2008 seed) 80%
Sweet Banana pepper (2008 seed) 90%
Ping Tung Long (2008 seed) 95%
Lista De Gandia Eggplant (2005 seed) 0 germination

Got good germination from tomatoes planted 1/26. Most of the plants now have their first true leaves. I was 3 or 4 weeks late starting tomatoes and peppers. If we have a hot, dry spring and early summer, they may not produce much. Eggplants will probably be OK.

Flowers growing in garden now include pansies, snapdragons, petunias, alyssum, violas, cyclamen, and primrose. Bluebonnets are beginning to form buds. Chandler strawberries in San Antonio garden are already blooming, but in the Austin garden they're lagging behind, not doing well at all. I was late planting them, because the local garden center where I usually buy them kept saying they would have some "next week" but they never did. By the time I finally ordered some to be shipped, I was over a month late planting them.
