Seedling Update 2.0: At Least They’re Not ALL Dead

Here’s a quick snap of a surviving seedling, now flourishing in an Earth Box. About half of the crop succumbed to the Florida summer sun (as did my habaneros and jalapenos). I’m thinking that’s not too bad of an attrition rate, though, given that I shouldn’t have planted any of these until October.
I have three that are robust like this one and another 10-12 that are smaller but seemingly healthy. So far, I’ve noticed no difference between those growing under “shade” (the lanai screen cuts about half the UV) and the box that’s in direct sunlight.
I’ll do some long overdue research and then order seeds for fall. Who knows? I might end up with a little pile of leaf after all.
