Q.Green Pepper And Broccoli Plants

Zone amboy ill 61310 | Anonymous added on September 27, 2023 | Answered

Good Morning, My garden does very well. Except for the green peppers and broccoli. I get nice normal size for both plants, but after I pull the first group, they are all small. I mean less than 1/2 the size. And w/the broccoli it does not grow in a ball shape. But the first sets are very good. why is this after the first pick until end of season???? Thank You
