Here are my two lettuce plants at 15 weeks. I have been getting about one salad a week to eat. In the bowl are about 10 good sized leaves that I just picked and chopped up and the plants don’t look like I touched them!
The peas on the other hand I am not so sure about. They are producing a 2 to 3 pods a week which is good, but some leaves are pale and are dying off here and there. There is new growth and it’s still flowering. I’m not sure if it is the fungus gnats (which I still have) or maybe a nutrient problem. Either way, the lettuce does not seem troubled at all.
The gnats seem to be under control but are not gone. The sticky paper is doing a good job of catching the adult flys. The guys at the hydroponic store talked me into trying some insecticidal soap to kill the larvea, but not sure how effective it has been. The next time I am at the store, I’ll get the neem oil and give that a try.
