I have the peppers and tomatoes planted in buckets, but they aren’t doing well, especially the peppers.
The tomatoes have improved but the peppers have many leaves that are bleached out on the top side. The bottom side looks normal. I’m thinking I didn’t harden them enough and the UV rays have affected the leaves. There are no pests on them, and I didn’t expect any this early in the year.
They’re not dead, but they’re sick. I’m hopeful since the newer growth coming in is a normal shade of green. And if they don’t recover, I’ll plant something else in those buckets.
