The temps have been interesting. It'll be in the high 80's low 90's for a week and then drop 30 or 40 * for a few days, they jump back up, and then go down. and up again. whacky weather! I think they're plenty hot though.
It is just that they're not growing like last year. I cheated this year and got garbage soil to start seedlings in and they just didn't grow very fast. I transferred them outside a few weeks ago and they really haven't grown all that much. THey were looking yellowy. So, I gave them some fertilizer and they perked up a bunch, but still growing slow. Yesterday I gave them castings and then it rained. So I'm hoping they take off now. I didn't have much castings, so hopefully it is enough. just a small scoop to each plant. last year they went nuts and fast. I guess what I did was put abunch of compost in each spot last year. I thought it would be enough for them this year as well, but apparently it wasn't. man. I wish I had a cow.
