I Planted two tomato plant and two green pepper plants in a field where it gets around 10 hours of direct sunlight.

Out temperature in Malta is already above the 80s.

The plant are struggling to grow especially the peppers. I cannot water everyday as I live far from the field. I water them 3 times a week.

I put some cactus leave to conserve some shade.

Anyone can suggest what I can do so they improve please?

Thanks alot

I'm no expert,but they look like they need some good compost and water. The 80 degree weather should'nt be a problem. I live in Fla and it's in the high 80's every day and my mators an peppers are doing great. That soil looks like it needs improving. good luck.

Your plants look good to me. You need to be more patient.

I agree the plants look good. A little time to grow roots and they will probably start growing.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
