Have about 15 assorted pepper plants but these 3 are experiencing some sort of issue.  The first 2 are Charleston Hot which seem to always be yellowish when I grow them each year.  The third one is a Carolina Cayenne.













Any advice is appreciated.

Have you had a lot of rain recently ?

Also, hows the drainage in those buckets ?

Just throwing out a couple ideas, ive had a few plants that weren't draining as well as i thought they were get yellow leaves and drop 


Best way I've found to determine if they are draining properly, is to pick them up and get a feel for how much they weigh both when they are thirsty, and right after they've had a good drink.

Can also sharpen a pencil then stab it deep into the soil and look at the fresh wood on sharpened pencil when you remove it, and determine if it picked up moisture or is dry. 


Hopefully others will chime in with their thought's and ideas


Ps. your pumpkin/squash looks good :)  Do you eat the blossoms, or just grow for the fruits ?



best of luck to you on your grow

It has been rainy lately but the other peppers don't seem to mind just the ones pictured.  I've got 5 1/2" holes drilled into the bottoms covered with weed block fabric to keep the soil from washing out, so the drainage is good.


Just the fruits for the zucchini, how do you use the flowers?
