What to do when Mother Nature doesn't want to cooperate. I thought it might be nice to share ideas on solving gardening problems. My daughter was telling me her pepper plants are not getting enough sunlight because other plants shot up so fast and are blocking the suns rays. Of course, the obvious is to transplant the peppers, but she doesn't have a place to put them. Also, transplanting may be more than unhealthy plants can stand. I suggested she try buying a wide roll of aluminum foil and angling it to redirect the suns rays when the plants are in the shade. She would have to readjust the foil every 20 minutes to keep the reflection hitting the plants, but I bet it would work. Also, I hear people complain about the cooler weather stunting grow. While the plants are small enough, plastic pales could be placed over the plants to intensify and hold the heat. It would be like a green house. The covering is also useful to prevent frost killing your plants.
