I have a patio picker from lowes how do I add fertilizer? And how long is it supposed to last? I have three plants in this one is doing very well, one look like something is wrong, and the other it was planted there very young and seems it should have grown more by now.

I had to google patio picker, as I'd not heard of it.

If this is what you have, and I have some similar, though mine are Earth Boxes, it's the same idea...
The initial planting with the fertilizer should be all it needs for the entire season.

The tomato in the back is doing very well has flowers and I think ready to produce, the tomatoe in the front looks sick. In the corner is a jalapeno pepper.

I have a couple of Earth Boxes, and know the instructions for filling with medium are really important . Without seeing how that is made, I'm guessing the moisture is uneven.
