Unfortunately, there are a lot of reasons for why they would turn yellow, depending on how it looks and where it presents itself, exactly. Reasons can include too much or too little fertilizer, pH imbalance, too much or too little water, thick soil, excessive heat, and disease. Luckily, you can test for these things.
I Cucumbers and peppers that I picked up at the store in the organic section and I cut them and took the seeds out.anyway It looks like the seeds are starting to grow to me .So I am just curious if I could plant or do you have to let seeds dry out ?
Usually if something goes wrong during seed production, some extra tissue is found inside the vegetable (which is edible). These seeds pictured look like they are swollen with water. I did some research and found that if cucumbers don't get enough water, they put all their resources into their seeds (and they are primarily water).
The article below says the chance of grocery store seeds germinating and growing is slim. Even the organic vegetables are likely hybrids. If they are "heirlooms" you should be OK. Same problems on the peppers.
I'm a beginner gardener and started my cucumber and zucchini seedlings a few weeks too early! It allowed me to make sure I had the perfect conditions for germination, but I feel bad wasting the plants since they are growing beautifully. Would pinching my seedlings once I have at least 4 real leaves buy me some time? Thank you very much.
If they are growing just fine and have enough light, I would keep doing what you are doing and let them grow. If they start getting leggy you can pinch them back. (or in the case of zucchini the article below says to add soil)
I live in Northeast Louisiana and would like to make a container garden.
Absolutely! I do, every year! You will need to hand pollinate if these are indoors, and watch your soil moisture levels, carefully. It changes much faster than it would if they were in the ground. Trellis them, as well. It helps save space!
Everything was looking good then they started to (stem) get white up around the leafes. See pictures. Thanks
Damping off is usually caused by fungal or bacterial infections. Typically, this originates from wet soil conditions, so if it was accidentally overwatered at one time, then this could be the source. Soils that are too compact will have this issue, as well.
Not growing really, some are but most aren't. Cucumbers haven't grown a inch in two weeks. Tomatoes are growing tall and spindly with few leaves and not much fruit. The leaves on the lower half of the tomato plant turn yellow and fall off. Squash isn't growing and staying yellow.
Are they getting six to eight hours of sun each day, regular fertilizer and water? Here are some articles that should help:
I have taken over the vegetable garden as my husband no longer wants to do it. However, he has several suggestions but doesn't know where he learned them or why I have to do them.
Technically, you can space them a, mere, 2 or 3 inches apart! As long as they have the run of about 3 feet, then you can crowd them and force them down the hill.
Unless they are crowding each other, then it will not be necessary.

Here is a nifty spacing chart that will be useful in the future:
