I had a good crop of onions that I started off indoors in little plastic containers and then planted out when they'd gotten a few inches tall.KarakD. wrote:Onion: Buy starters, its way easier then starting seed.
The seed I started last year is only now forming edible bulbs.
Cucumbers: Good luck (I suck at growing them)
I got one inedible, bitter cucumber off my three cucumber plants. The fourth I gave to a neighbour who got millions of cucumbers off it. Ah well...
Chilli pepper grow very well, I've found. They're much like tomatoes.
At the supermarkets near me they do pots of basil and other herbs and chilli peppers. Wait until they have dying ones marked down, then plant them in proper compost and they'll explode back into health. Often, the tiny pots they grow them in aren't big enough for the root system once it's established.
