So my first garden is doing really well. We are using raised boxes, everything organic. Everything has lots of room and is growing wonderfully. With the exception of our zucchini and pepper plants.<br><br>
#1 - Our Zucchini. I originally planted too many. So we pulled one and then they grew HUGE and we had to tie them up. We had massive rainstorms and lost all the little zucchinis that were growing. And we have small ones growing now but I am not sure if they will make it. They keep rotting and falling off. Right now I have three plants in there. SHould I pull one more? Maybe I have too many crowded in there? SHould I leave them tied up or not?<br><br>
#2 - Our Bell Peppers. They are growing and flowering. But just as the flower opens it stays maybe a day and then falls off. ANd then nothing. I still have nothing growing from them and I know I should. My Jalapeno plants are doing great. But not my two bell pepper plants. Someone in my homeschool group suggest spraying them with Epson salts.... any experience in this?<br><br>
