Beetlespersqft :  I am so forum illiterate!  Have no idea what happened to the original response I had to this!  Tried to "quote" you and respond....oh well - thank goodness this is a gardening forum and not a tech forum!!!   Shocked

anyways - no recipe, just tomatoes, peppers, onions, lime juice and cilantro!  The ground cherries add just enough of the sweetness with the spicy I love...  I hope to try jam this year!  Smile

I don't think it's you - I've lost responses, too.

I'll be growing everything except the lime juice. Cool

This doesn't look right to me. The plants all seem healthy enough, but they all have speckled leaves. Help?

That looks like spider mites to me. Very tiny. They hide on the undersides of the leaves. Here's one thread (I bet there are others - but I'm distracted and supposed to be doing other things right now!)

Thanks, but I don't think so. The leaves are all clean, top and bottom. Nothing shakes off and nothing moves. They were grown inside from seed. They get Miracle Gro every week, so I don't think it's nutritional. Ventilation not great in here. Maybe some kind of fungus? I have that organic 3 in 1 spray stuff I could try. Maybe I'll do that on just one plant and see what happens. geek They're still in the house, so no friendly critters would be exposed.

I think you're right about the fan. I'll try it.

I'm by far no expert, and they're incredibly hard to see, but that certainly looks like spider mites to me.

I brought another plant in and looked at it under my magnifying light and I think you're right. I did see some tiny little somethings. I will spray them all with that organic stuff and see what happens. Thank you all.

Ok I am still kinda skeptical bout these things as I understand it they spread out and take up space.  That kinda goes against my style.  regular cherry maters like sweet 100's or something grow up trellesis make buckets full of fruit and I plant 5 across the 4 ft side of a box and still can plant other stuff twords the middle in the same square.  I cant imagine them being so good they can take over a corner of a box it kinda defeats the purpose dont it?????

Cappy, you could stick a couple in a sunny corner of your yard somewhere. They are fine off on their own.

Decided to only spray one and it looks worse this morning. Now the leaves are starting to die around the edges. I decided to try washing all the leaves with warm water. One little plant was loaded with tiny, fine webs. Other plants, like amaranth aren't doing well, either. Time to find a cure. I did a search here and found that seaweed is the answer. Hopefully I can find some, today. bounce

This is rather sad, Country. Did you try insecticidal soap, or even dish soap, already?

Not yet, just water so far, but I ordered something organic from Ace that's supposed to work. We'll see. geek

In my opinion, you won't find any magic solutions to get rid of spider mites. A mild dish soap and water mixed in a spray bottle, and plants moved out doors will produce just about as good results as anything else. Again, just my opinion and what I've experienced. YMMV.

I had to look up YMMV. Your mileage may vary. Razz  Dr. Bronner's liquid soap and water seems to work for me. Spider Mites thrive in the hot summer in CA so I even spray to keep the humidity up.

My big plants seem okay, so I guess they got off to a good start before the spider mites found them. My little guys aren't doing too well. I will watch them all closely and repeat treatments as necessary. I WILL PREVAIL!  Twisted Evil

Hubby does all the cooking in our house. If he likes them, he will do a lot of preserving. If not, the chickens will get them and that will be the end of it.  Rolling Eyes I really hope we like them. They are so unique. Cool

I definitely started these babies too soon. I'm still at least 2 weeks from being able to set them out, I've already transplanted them twice, and now I have blooms and fruit forming. Shocked I sure hope they forgive me. Embarassed

Mine did that my first time. No worries, other than the space they are taking up. It doesn't seem to make any difference in transplanted performance
