These are 7 gallon pots. I use Promix BX, to which I mixed 1 cup dolomite lime( garden lime at HD- 50 lb bag about $6) and 1&1/2 cups Tomato Tone which I like far better than any other fertilizer I have ever used. I mix thoroughly, and that is all so far. I was given some homemade fish emulsion so I am probably going to get a Tablespoon of that to a gallon to supplement pretty soon. Maybe once per week I will add that. I think everything is growing taller there because its on the west side of the house, and the house shades it until afternoon, but they do get about 5.5-6 hrs full sun. They don't really look like they are strething to reach the light though, do they?

The size is progressing. The oldest formed fruit are small saladette sized. I am dying to know what color they will be. Hope that one ripens soon. First plant top showing lots of fruitset.

Awesome project guys! I look forward to following the progress. They look a little bit like unripe Purple Bumblebees I've grown, except a bit larger.

That is Early. 66 days from seeds (at this stage, add another 15 day until ripe) that is like 50-55 DTM. I wonder how long will it take up north, in Canada .

Sow date was September 14th so Karen, you were close. Today is 71 days from sowing if I counted right. Still, yes, very early if it ripens soon. The big question is pink, or orange? Any prognosticators here? Heee!
