45 gallon this year...looks like I'll need a bigger pot next year. You guys are killing me!

I used a really nice potting blend from my local nursery and added compost, kelp meal, manure, rock dust and castings.

I need help Gents. The soil in my raised beds is rock hard. I didn't cover them this year. I can barely get a shovel into it. How do I till it? Should I mix in a bunch of peat and compost to soften it up?

My plants are having a hard time adjusting to the sun this year. Through most of April, we had daytime temps near 80 with nighttime temps in the frickin 30s! This made it really difficult to properly harden them off, unless I wanted to carry 50+ plants in and out every day. So now that the nights are warm enough, its pushing 90 during the day. Still low 60s at night and hot days Is wreaking havoc on my peppers. So I kept my word and killed my first pick. The backup is potted up and in its final home. Lets see how long it takes me to kill this one!


Killing them is an interesting strategy.

Hardening off a bit early this year due to lack of space in the garage. These are mostly YBS, but there are a couple Fatalii and Mustard Bhuts mixed in

The weather here is seriously screwing with my plans. I generally begin hardening off around the last week of March, and am in the dirt by 4-7 or so. This year was no different, 50+ plants potted up and in a well shaded place in the yard that is protected from the sun and wind. A few days later, night time temps started dipping into the 30s, which the plants didnt care for at all. Sooooo, back inside they went, 50-7 gallon grow bags ( the wife really loves this part) in my spare room, under nothing but a 20 watt bulb. Next day it sleeted all day, which is unheard of for April in Arkansas....So needless to say, my plants are PISSED at me right now. Most of my plants, including my two YBS', have dropped a bunch of their leaves, and are having a hard time recovering due to insufficient lighting. One more cold snap expected this weekend and then hopefully it will be gone!

 

Now they're throwing tornadoes at you!
