Eggplant, other veggies stunted from cold weather?
I transplanted 2 Black Beauty Eggplants into my garden nearly a month ago.
They have not grown one inch. They both have 3 healthy looking top leaves and 2-3 yellowish bottom leaves.
We had some cool weather and they were put out too early, but I don't think it ever got below 40. But we have warmed up here and have not had a night below 55 in a couple weeks, soil temps probably about 70. Last week though we had non-stop rain all week, but we have had several sunny days in a row now.
Could they be permanently stunted? If so I would like to replace them before it's too late.
The Okra I've planted has also not grown an inch, but that's to be expected. I threw a few seeds into the ground a week ago just in case. The Peppers I planted at the same time as the Eggplant have also not grown and the leaves are pale, but they seem to finally be getting some new growth, and strangely they have already started flowering out in the garden and we have one nice fruit already forming on a small plant!
