Not a very good photo, regrettably - but then I think I mentioned the tricky light conditions...
Today I sowed the following - mostly hot chillis, but the last three named are technically sweet peppers:-
Numex Suave Orange
All the above are from commercially-produced seeds, but I also sowed seeds of six different types of chilli that I obtained on my holidays in Turkey, and some Scotch Bonnets saved from the previous year. Since I don't know the official names of the Turkish ones I have given them nicknames like "short fat", "long thin", "round red" etc.
For most of these, I have as usual sowed two seeds per 5-inch pot, but in the case of the home-saved ones I have sowed four per pot, just in case I get poor germination rates. Naturally, when I see what comes up I will aim to thin out to one seedling per pot, choosing the strongest specimen.
Now I'm just hoping that the weather will improve rapidly and dramatically, with some good sunshine as well!
Oh, by the way, I notice that my over-wintered Scotch Bonnet plant has now got some tiny flowerbuds:
