I am not sure if any one remembers me talking about my paito tomatoe plant that broke so I figured it was dead so being a new gardener I put it at the bottom of a blue container and added dirt them I planted some peppers on top of that.

Well low and be hold I now have a very very very nice lovely bushy pepper plant. Here is the problem I also now have a very lovley new patio tomatoe plant in the same container.

My question is well this be a problem and who do you think will win? And should I do anything?

I have been trying since the season has begun to grow peppers I started to give up until I saw how lovely it came out.
Does anyone know when should we should stop planting things?

Thank you,
Nicky

Hi Nicky,
I remember you posting about that. I kinda' thought that would happen. Why not transplant the tomato plant into a different pot and keep them both? I don't think there's room to keep them both in the same container. Tomatoes need a lot of room. A 5 gallon pail is the best thing for a tomato plant. Keep me posted.

I notice it did not come out. I was trying to make the pic's smaller so I can add them, but it would not work for me so I gave up.
Thank you,
Nicky

your gonna have to split them up and plant them seperately!
maybe leave the tom and move the peppers.

Just be as careful as you can when seperating them. Have your new pot prepared, dig up which ever plant you're transplanting and plop it in the new pot. Water well! Good luck Nicky. [thumb]
P.S. Don't worry if it doesn't look so good for the first short while..it'll end up doing just fine.

Ciao Nicky,

Another point..in Texas, you're so hot there that if I were you, I'd do the transplanting at dawn and keep them as cool as you can until they get established so the heat doesn't compound the transplant shock.

Good luck to you!

Ok.
The patio tomoate has already started flowering. man this is so hard.

It took me all this time to get a nice looking pepper plant. This one is by seeds all the store bought ones dies on me. I really hope it hangs in there.

Thank you,
Nicky
