Sometime since I last wrote, I got the rest of the veggies in with the exception of the peppers. I planned on planting those this weekend, but the forecast is calling for it to be as low as 37 tonight (depending on your source), so I'm going to leave the peppers in the cold frame for another day. I considered covering the other plants outside, but never got around to it. I'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't get too cold tonight.

I read something about using Epsom salts on tomato plants so I tried that this year. I don't know if it made a difference, but it certainly didn't hurt the plants--they look great. I threw about a tablespoon in each hole when I was transplanting. I believe I'm supposed to dissolve some in water and water the plants with it once they start flowering. I need to remember to do that. I was talking to a fellow gardener this afternoon and he mentioned Epsom salts were good for peppers, too. So, I'll be trying that as well. I figure it can't hurt.
