Poblano Log

I have begun the Poblano Pepper project again. This year I ordered 1000 Don Emilio seeds from Western Seed Company. I set up a germination table hat seems to be keeping the flats at about 30 degrees, the optimum temperature. Prior to sowing the seeds I have divided the 648 seeds I plan to plant into 3 groups. These will be soaked in different solutions of plain water, chamomile tea, and a solution of about 1 gallon of water with 1 teaspoon of coarse salt. The salt is not stirred in. Tonight I will plant all the seeds. As it stands, the water-soaked and the tea-soaked seeds will have been soaked for about 14 hours and I'll plant the salt-seeds tomorrow....
