My tomato & pepper plants are thin & leggy, with few leaves. Don’t look full & healthy. I’m watering every other day & have fertilized them with as noted on the bag. Also, they are planted in a brand new planter we built this year with fresh top soil & soil amender… should be great medium for veggie plants. not sure what’s wrong.
