I don't know if they just don't like me or what, but I'm having more problems with these plants than anything! It's almost unbelievable. I am a first time gardener, so I'm positive that has something to do with it, but I'm growing Cherokee Purple, Yellow Pear and the beefsteak Mr. Stripey all with no trouble at all, except a little blossom drop on the CP. The Homestead, though, ugh. I have 4 of them planted in 3 different beds and all 4 of them have had one problem or another, and not even all the same problems. Some of the other plants are in the same beds and having no problems, just the Homesteads. I live in south Texas, so maybe they aren't good for my area. Has anyone else found that they seem especially susceptible to...everything?
