Default problem?

here's a couple pics. of what is supposed to be an early girl, it has kind of a potato leaf look to it, it hasn't grown but maybe an inch since i planted it, now it's looking kinda funny, i stuck a Karma pink that survived in with it, only thing i've done was added a little more 10-10-10 fertilizer to the top arond the edge, we just got done with a day of heavy rain yesterday and last night, leaves are curling and viens are turning purple, don't know if i should pull it or what and just leave the Karma pink in there by it self, it should be the same size as the rest of the plants showen in the other pic. thanks --tom (it's the one on the far left

That's P deficiency. Of course, it's probably something related to the roots that don't function well. Like too much water, too little air, whoknowswhat. A small plant will use much less water than a big plant (obviously).
You kinda have to wait probably.

just seems funny that all the plants were the same size when planted, and same mix and everything, and this one just stays the same size, and is supposed to be an early girl plant, i realize it's probably all in the name because i've had plants in the past beat out early girl.---tom

My early girl has tomatoes growing already. This is 'early' for Southern Ontario.
