Very small eggplant and pepper harvest this year
I have beautiful lush eggplant and pepper plants in one of our raised beds. We use black plastic mulch and have a soaker hose under that to water them. For the second year in a row our eggplant harvest has been dismal. The plants are beautiful but are producing very few flowers and the ones that are produced seem to be falling off. I am wondering if I might be taking too good care of them - too much rich compost - that is encouraging them to produce foliage and not fruit? This year the same thing is happening with the peppers.
