The new broccoli seedlings are really starting to grow. I think the two feedings of fish emulsion helped. I decided I have to pull out these plants near the tomatoes. They never produced cauliflower or broccoli. I can't remember which anymore, because I replanted both so many times and the leaves look the same to me. However, they have all these round white things on the backside of the leaves. They will only infest all the other plants. I think it's also time to spray some more diatomaceous earth.

The peppers are starting to produce less and less. I was hoping the two feedings of EndRot (calcium and magnesium) would spur them on to produce more peppers, but no such luck.

I am thinking of planting winter squash. Why not?

  1. Could you take a photo of the "little white things" on the backside of the leaves . I will try to help you identify them . Easy on the nitrogen as it is the culprit that can lead to infestation on new growth ,winter or summer.
    Rule of thumb is ,cold weather, labeled dosage of fertilizer for nitrogen based products . Hot months 1/2 to 3/4 dosage . Why? . Plants in the summer sun are able to utilize the nitrogen easier because of warm soils , so you need less to do the same to feed them .
