Vegetables are not happy
« on: December 10, 2013, 06:35:32 PM »
Its been a warm and wet winter so far and the vegetable plantings are just blah....pathetic....Is it just here is Western Palm Beach county? Do I have duds? Did the plant gods frown upon me?

Sorry guys up North, I know you are getting pummeled.

yah, the couple of "winter edibles" (ie, plants that the rest of the country plants during the summer) have been doing poorly. It feels like October still.

Check underside of leaves.  Major problem here in peppers and tomatoes with white fly.

I've been having whitefly issues with peppers all Fall.  The corn has been hit and miss so far, with some stalks growing quite nicely and others not so much.  Broccoli is coming on strong now, and Romaine lettuce has already bolted.  Cilantro is doing quite well.
