I might have damaged my cherry tomatoes, TomatoNut95.
I had been reading about number one newbie mistake is overwatering. I had been watering these in the Fairfield planter daily but decided to skip a day. That next morning, I woke up to the bottom half of both plants completely wilted LIMP and their leaves curled up! I quickly watered them. I sure hope I didn't damage them.
I had also tried to cut out some of the 'suckers' as I've read I should but it was too difficult to reach inside - everything I considered cutting had baby tomatoes on them! I have bungee cords offering some support. And, on another thread, I've talked about fertilizer and I have some stakes AND pellets (organic) coming. I don't really understand how that 'self-watering' concept in these planters is supposed to work; I'm treating them like regular planters.
I thought you might like to see my first attempt at gardening (the other set of plants on my patio), attached. I did a soil test (I'm trying to learn) and it says al the planters are 7.5 so I'll be giving them a drink of epson salts to up the acidity a bit (in addition to fertilizing them as discussed in another thread). Being a plant parent is nerve-wracking!
Next year, I'll put one cherry tomato in each Fairfield Planter, Imafan26!
added: the next morning after watering them, they seem fine but are they?
