Hi all, first time gardener and i just planted last week.
i had been bringing my seedlings in and out of the house to harden them before i planted but the day i put my tomatoes in the ground they werent looking so good. I went camping the next day (this past saturday) and my sister came over and watered everything. when i returned monday afternoon my tomatoes looked even worse than when i rushed to get them planted before the long weekend.
when i planted them they each got a couple handfuls of seaweed and shrimp compost around the roots and where then watered.
I water at night and even have some trenches to get water deep down to the roots.
i checked the soil a little while ago and just under the surface it doesnt feel wet to me, but its really dark. which tells me that its not dried out, but maybe its not wet enough (again i don't know what im talking about.)
the cucumbers i planted were all laying down on the ground when i returned on monday, but they SEEM to be recovering after watering them (still look a little sickly, but MIGHT make it). again makes me think its a water issue with my tomatoes.
oh and they are Parks whopper tomatoes if it matters
