Green Peppers and Celery doing poorly this year

Post  jamiedolan on 7/12/2010, 10:57 am

HI,

Most everything is growing great, however, my celery and my Green Peppers are tiny. (tiny peppers - thin celery)

Anyone else have any problems with these?

You can see from the photo how well everything is growing. The peppers and the celery are over at the left, the smallest plants in the garden. The only reason the stuff in the front center isn't as large is because it is second crop that just got planted.




Thanks
Jamie

I don't know why you're having that problem, but I wanted to say your garden looks great!

Thank You.

Everything else has continued to grow well. The peppers have perked up a little bit, but are way behind everything else.

Thanks

Jamie

I am also in MO and mine are very small. I got a late start then had to replant 2-3 times. I also started with seeds not plants this year.They are currently only about 6 inches tall. I think I will be putting a hoop green house over that bed if they are just reaching their potential in the fall.
My uncle thou has had great success his are about knee height and there were 3 peppers total on his six plants.

My celery which we planted in early March really has not done great but it is still green and growing a little.
My biggest problem is with all my squash and melon plants they are loaded with male flowers. The female flowers never open or even after self pollinating they are not producing. I have plenty of little flying pollinators that are fun to watch though.

I am having the opposite "problem"; I am about overrun with peppers! I have one each of a green bell, banana, jalapeno, and Hungarian hot wax peppers and they are producing like mad! have lots of fruit on my tomatoes but they are just beginning to turn.
