Landrace: locally-adapted diversity

I planted my first flat of 73 sweet peppers today. It's the first production planting for the season. I've already planted some seeds outdoors, but they were frost tolerant breeding programs, so they may or may not germinate. It's still 12 weeks before my last expected spring frost.

I'm 4 days late with the planting, but I built shelves to host them, and my potting soil was frozen, etc. I made paper pots that are round, so that I can transplant them while standing up by use of my stick seeder: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o9qs7Rkdaqk I invented the seeder last winter and used it all summer last year. It works great for seeds, and for onions, and for transplants, but I have to make special pots. I could use jiffy-pots, or round peat pots, but I feel like they interfere with the growth of the plant so I don't like to use them.
