Oh yeah, it's just getting its first bloom, so it'll be weeks before - I see tomatoes. sm

Posted: Jun 16th, 2022 - 9:20 am In Reply to: Wondering how the purple tomato has been - coming along

There are a few buds forming now, so the game's on.  This purple tomato is a dwarf variety and I will never grow anything but dwarf of anything again.  They flourish in the box, whereas regular-sized plants don't do so well.  The purple pepper is thriving too.  The micro tomato not so much, but then those are for hydroponics, so not expecting anything from it, but hoping it will grow in dirt anyway.  The last one didn't.  Still exprimenting with sprays; added plain water to mist them every day so they think they're getting rain and it's working, it was an immediate difference, and still using the neem oil and epsom salt every couple of weeks for bugs/fungus and extra nutrition.  Did something different with the dirt this time too, and it's made a noticeable difference. I mixed dry Miracle-Gro granules in the dirt to begin with instead of using an earthbox replant kit with their fertilizer and watering with MG water, big difference.  It's been interesting fooling around with this stuff, and it beats going outside.  I don't know what the key is that's making such a huge difference, but whatever it is, this new routine is working.  I've read so much stuff on the internet that people say to do, and those things varied so much that I decided to just go with my gut and if it makes sense, try it and see what happens.  Seat-of-my-pants gardening, it's a hoot.
