So, it’s been a little while since my last post. That’s what happens when you work 12-14 days, 6 days a week. Other than a lack of communication with the outside world, a result of this work schedule is my balcony garden doesn’t get a lot of attention. My poor poor tomato plants. I don’t think I’ll be getting any fruit from them. They have been getting water regularly from my Moisture Matic system (see my Watering post) which I thought would be fine, but the leaves have started to yellow and dry. My theory (very basic, with no expert knowledge behind it) is that my balcony gets all its sun in the afternoon. I vaguely remember reading that when plants need ‘full sun’ it is best in the morning. I think the strong afternoon sun and the hot days we’ve had lately have shrivelled my potted tomato plants.
I said from the get go that I would share all the successes and losses in my farming pursuits, so as much as my pride doesn’t want me to say this, I need help. I’d love your opinion or knowledge on what I’ve done wrong. Feel free to comment on this post if you’ve got any information that might help me.
