Growth is a bit slow right now for all of my plants. My good wife took care of the plants while I was out of town and did a very good job, but my 868 plant was looking a little yellow when I got back. I gave all of the plants a pinch of blood meal and magnesium this morning along with some water and this evening the plants were looking a bit better. A few hours of sun this morning didn't hurt either today. I don't thing these plants have seen a full day of sun since they went in the ground however. Right now I think I'm about 6 days behind where I was last year. I planted earlier last year but the spring was warm and sunny so the plants got a great start last year.
