Nice picture Catattack, I can understand the lack luster performance on most. The nutrients available are normally consumed by the microbes breaking down the straw bale as part of the composting. If the oldest leaves begin to turn yellow before their physiological maturity, this is an indication that nitrogen may be limited, purpling leaves is a symptom of phosphorus deficiency, while leaf margin necrosis is a symptom of potassium deficiency (brown leaf edges).

Where were you when I planted? ;) 


I have all sorts of toys to play with, and I was dumping a "P" heavy fish fert (organic of course) on the bales. If anything, I thinned out weak genetics and will have a better  starting point for my cherokee purples the next go around.


I have some pretty amazing shots to add to this. Stay tuned. I have a lot on my plate, projectwise.
