My husband was expressing concern about the mels mix the other day, saying that though the spinach and kale and potatoes seem to be doing better than last year, the tomatoes and peppers are WAY behind.
HMMM
Not be the record keeper, I was wondering too.
Then I went back to all my pictures from last year, and they all are dated (isn't technology great?)
And sure enough the tomatoes were pretty much at the same level they were last year at this time.
The peppers ARE way behind, and they were the first planted seeds, I am thinking I may have waited too long to pot them into large pots, they just did not ever get root bound, like the tomatoes do
But that is what I will do next year and hope my little plants can catch up now that the weather is here.

There are so many reasons for faster or slower growth the following year. Depletion of the soil of nutrients needed for a specific plant, more compost needed at planting time, seed starting and transplanting times (early or later), and weather being the foremost. Any can change how one's garden grows.

Soil can always take a boost with compost tea or fish or seaweed emulsion or a top dressing of more compost which will help the current crops.

Keeping records year to year can give you a clue so I do it all the time. By all means, keep a journal.

I am keeping a journal this year, last year we were in the midst of building a house at the same time.
I have gone through all of the possibilities, I have given them the seaweed emulsion and lots of compost
I think I just did not notice how slow they were because I had so many other things growing. I should have done something sooner for them


So much to be watching at one time, I know now to stay on top better, for next year.
I am expected to see some real growth in the next week or so because our nights have gotten a whole lot warmer this week.

Seems like I have heard/read peppers grow better in warmer weather. I know mine have just began to start 'jumping'.

an easy way to record keep Empty Peppers and Tomatoes

Post  memart1 Tue May 29, 2012 11:12 am

It seems to me that several years ago I read that either you should plant peppers near tomatoes or you definitely shouldn't, but I can't remember which it was. Anyone know the answer?

My books suggest that Peppers definitely like warm weather and their optimal growth temp is a full 10 degrees higher than for tomatoes.
I hope they grow well together, I have paired them up in all my SFG....
