I am very new to gardening, I bought my first plants (tomato, basil, and pepper) past weekend.
I bought Miracle Gro potting soil. And I bought these pots,

The plants are in my balcony and it gets about 5 hours of sun.
I have couple of questions.
1. How often should I water the plants? I have been watering the plants in the morning. But I see the soil is always wet. Don't know if I should water once in two days. The pots have 'self-watering disks'. Still, I made two holes in the bottom to let the excess water drain.
2. Miracle Gro says no fertilizer is needed for 6-8 weeks. What should I do after that? I am thinking of buying liquid kelp-based fertilizer. Is that a good idea?
