The Bells Are Ringing.... Empty The Bells Are Ringing....

Post  Reverend Curlee 8/4/2011, 12:09 pm

........for me and my garden. Yes, under the partial shade of my Edamame and Okra, my Yellow and Red Bell Peppers are starting to fruit! I'm very excited. I also have numerous Pods and Blossoms on my Edamame. Now I'm just wondering how Ginormous my Okra is going to grow before they fruit. I honestly believe I would not be experiencing this much success in my garden this year if I'd not been using Mel's Mix. I water 2x a day. Once in the morning and again in the early evening. And even with the extreme heat, my 4 X 4's never dry out. It has been awesome.

Isn't it amazing how much of a kick you can get over something so simple. It is always hugely satisfying to watch!

Great on the peppers! My bells are always green with no color.

Hint: okra likes heat and as little water as you can not give it, without nearby plants being harmed. Okra should bloom when it's 2.5 ft tall if it's hot/dry enough. Okra can get 10 ft. tall. How tall is yours?

The Bells Are Ringing.... Empty Thanks

Post  Reverend Curlee 8/5/2011, 6:57 pm

Thanks Chopper and littlejo! My Okra is about 2.5 high, so if I don't see blossoms soon I'll cut back on their water. Thanks for the tip.

The Bells Are Ringing.... Empty Watering

Post  Reverend Curlee 8/6/2011, 9:56 am

Started a more selective watering regiment last night to keep the MM drier in the Okra squares. Let's see how that works. Thanks again littlejo!

I hope it helps. I was watering mine all the time and it wouldn't grow or bloom, and when I missed watering, it started blooming. Being in the south I knew it liked the heat. If it's not hot enough, you might try putting a piece of clear plastic, cut to fit, on the ground around the stalk to heat the soil.

The Bells Are Ringing.... Empty High 90's - Low 100's

Post  Reverend Curlee 8/7/2011, 2:51 pm

Hi JO, we've been in the high 90's to low 100's for awhile. So should be hot enough. I will continue the targeted watering to keep the Okra drier and see what happens. Thanks again.
