Whisker Trout Slayer Posted July 23, 2012 Share Posted July 23, 2012 The first question is with Zuchinni. We have one mound with 4 seeds or plants that was doing really great and was dang near waist high even with the high temps and humidity. It is in the sun from about 1pm to sunset. Each day some of the leaves would wilt up a little and I water it about every other day. The leaves then in the morning would look fine and normal. Well just last week I noticed one of the plants was turning yellow and looked like it was going to die. We did get 2 nice sized zuchinni off the plant so far and there are 2 little ones growing now. Yesterday more of the plant looks like it is starting to die off. Is it possible to over water it, or is it due to lack of water? It doesn't appear to be any bugs eating the leaves or anything.The second question is with tomatoes. How close do you plant the plants in the spring? How close is too close? I have them about 16 inches apart. The plants are HUGE, about chin high and very bushy. There are a lot of tomatoes on there about golf ball to tennis ball size and are all green. My wife thinks I planted the plants too close together as the tomatoes are not turning red. I red on a gardening site that the plants with the drought type weather are in survival mode and not in the mode to turn the tomatoes red right now. I water the whole garden every other day. Any other pointers to get them to turn red or just wait it out as I think it is early also. I do not remember what type of tomato that they are, we had 4 plants of 2 types.Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
