While out at the market this AM getting my lottery tickets I seen they had their 6 packs of flowers on sale for a whopping whole giant green dollar. I picked out one six pack of Begonias for an extra pail I had available. I put four plants in the pail and put one plant each in a tomato container.
Got my moisture meter out to check all the containers for moisture content. Only the two cauliflower containers were low on water. The plants are getting up to good size now so probably need more watering than the other containers right now. I was just reading up on cauliflower growing. Quite a complex process to grow vegetables. http://horticulture.oregonstate.edu/content/cauliflower-0
Staked and tied most all the plants that needed supporting. Going to build some chimneys [cages] this coming week for some of the plants.The wind has been pretty brisk this past week.
Seen a flower on one of the sweet million tomato plants today.
I also put a couple Tbsp of Epsom salts around each of the pepper plants that are in the pails to see how it goes. Epsom salt contains 09.8% Magnesium and 13% sulphur. I understand peppers like slightly acidic soil. The PH before adding Epsom salt was almost touching 7. The PH looks like it needed lowering in the soil for the peppers plants anyhow. The sulphur in the Epsom salt will probably do the trick.
"Using a pH meter, confirm your soil has a moderate to slightly acidic pH range of 5.8 to 6.5."
