California Wonder Bell Peppers
Golden Giant II Sweet Pepper Hybrid
Green Envy Cherry Tomatoes
Sweet Banana Peppers
Rio Grande Verde Tomatillo
Yellow Cayenne Peppers
Basil Plants (for indoors)
Anaheim Chili Peppers
Bull Nosed Large Bell
Golden Acres Cabbage

My dad and I are going to build a very small greenhouse which will probably be about 6′ x 8′ and hopefully portable. We want to put it on our deck at first for a variety of personal reasons.
