Second Inflorescence

Category: Hydroculture | Posted: Sun Sep 27, 2015 5:34 pm

My harvest of peppers was spectacular. I currently have them sitting in a brine/vinegar mixture to keep them while I wait for the next wave of peppers to grow on the plant. It's currently covered in flowers and growing even thicker than before.

Which presents a problem. The tomatoes are struggling for light beneath the canopy of leaves the pepper has over them. I'm hoping that they'll eventually grow up and over the pepper, thus getting their own portion of light but it isn't looking too good for them doing much in the way of fruit production.

The next kit I get will be three tomatoes rather than a pepper and two tomatoes. This should ensure that everything grows at relatively the same rate.

I may get a "Grow Your Own" seed kit and attempt growing the dwarf variety of large tomatoes I saw on the Burpee website.

About the only other thing happening is my Pelargoniums finally blooming. Yay!

They're months late but they're blooming at least. I really hope I get a red flower.
