I just prepped and seeded three trays with Haberneros, Thai Poinsettias, long red cayenne, various bell peppers, and virginia tobacco.
217 plants in all. A third of them are tobacco.
There should be 50 haberneros, 19 Thai peppers, 40 cayennes, and 36 bell pepper plants in a few weeks.
I also found a variety of 12 foot tall by 4 foot wide Arbor Vitea shrubs at Wally World for $7.44 each. So far I have four of them planted to start my hedgerow, there will be at least five more and then my driveway will be screened from the road eventually. At this point they are only about 24 inches tall.
I'd still like to get some Anahiem Chiles, but have some banana pepper seeds ready to sprout out. This year my grocery store is going to be out back!
I'm waiting a little longer before committing, don't think the frost is over.
I gotta get some manure and peat, going to do all the beds, and make another beside our house, just need some timbers to build up where it's sloped to the sidewalk.
Get some loads of manure to mix in it, at the end of the year, put ALL your leaves back there on it in a pile, you spread it out the next year after it's been there rotting and till it in.
BTW, people can't believe my luck in planting, wife and I have had plants thrive in the worst area's, like a rock garden, had to haul out truck loads of rock, and bring in soil to mix with the clay left over.
Dad has already started the garden by the barn at my great grandparents old homestead, I need to start getting the soil turned here.
I'd love a place to setup a compost bin, I always had good luck with my garden, would spread granulated fertilizer out before turning it under the last time before planting.
Just make sure these neighbors don't put week killer on their lawns!
Please don't consider anything I say as coming from someone who knows what he's talking about!

You can make a mini-composter out of one of the big blue plastic barrels I see all over the place around here.
Cut about a foot and a half wide by foot tall hole in the side at the bottom to shovel it out, leave the top open and dump in dirt to match the amount of grass cuttings, leaves, and leftovers that go into it.
