3 Kinds/Colors of Jalapenos: My Ebay Auction

One strategy I use to maintain a Zero Cost garden is, I sell and auction seeds, if I am not giving them away. Typically I sell enough to pay for my cost. Yes, I order extra and sell them down.

I am planting another salsa garden this year and found jalapenos to have the right amount of heat for salsa. I ordered yellow, purple and green jalapeno seeds this year. The make for great heat and color contrast.

You can find my auction here if your are interested. They can also be found at Tomatogrowers.com.
