I'm used to peppers stuffed with rice but couscous appeals to my middle eastern heritage. The use of a microwave in this recipe makes it All American!

You don't mention what pltnas you are growing, so it is hard to say for sure. Try digging down about 4 inches next to one of your pltnas. (not to close or you will hurt the roots!) If the dirt there is still wet, don't water until it isn't any more. If it's dry watering time!Did you test the soil before planting? Your soil may be to acidic. Try using a little lime. (Not the fruit, garden lime.) This will decrease the acidity, and can help pltnas to take up calcium and iron.Do you feed your pltnas? If not, it's time to start! You want to make sure that they are getting regular feedings to keep those pltnas happy and healthy!And how about light? Plants need lots of light If they are getting to much, they usually tell you by wilting during the hottest part of the day. But they do need at the very least 8 hours of full sun.You can buy a garden meter mine measures ph, moisture, fertility and light. I picked it up at a big box store for $ 11 and some change Works wonders!Hope this helps! And remember, anything you try may take a few days to make a differance, so watch close and give it time! Happy gardening!
