Garden - weeks 4 and 5

Well, the garden is producing more! In addition to the basil and cilantro, we've been able to harvest some green onions and jalepenos! yea! We now have tomatoes growing on all 4 plants, and bell peppers growing on the red pepper plants and I think a few ones on their way on our orange bell peppers. I think tonight we will be able to try one of our summer squashes too!

We had had a problem of the tomato flowers dropping off. Any suggestions? The plant is growing like crazy, but there is little fruit growing on them. As you can see, they have grown passed the 2nd rung and up to the 3rd!

Here are some pics!

Alexis, I found this for you:

David says to make sure your plants are getting enough water. You should be watering them 2x a week if you haven't had rain in 3-4 days. Othewise, the heat will stress the plants. We have 2 tomato plants that I must say...are producing like CRAZY.

Thanks Kim. I've actually been watering them 2x a day... I put some blossom boost on 'em, and they seem to be doing well. Thanks for the advice!
