well, you sure can't complain about your healthy mater plants! What do you use for potting mix to get those results?

lol jungle is right! peppers are trying to get above them , only a couple of low blossoms and peppers starting, all the rest of the blossoms are high, not as many as last year,pretty sure they need a bit more sun, was gone for 5 days and the tomatoes got out of control, the soil mix is just peat---compost---perlite---garden lime-- and 10-10-10 fert.

10 foot rain gutter, i'm going with less buckets next year, (too crowded) pretty sure 9 buckets would fit if you wanted them that close.

I have one row of pepper plants in my RGGS with 7 plants thats working good for me. Now that the plants are bigger and producing more they are catching up with my other peppers that I top water. Early on I think they were getting too wet. My problem this year is I am not getting any heat out of my reg. jalopeno or biker billy or cherry bomb or cayenne.Hopefully watering them less will bring some heat.
