I have just planted my first vegetable garden. I bought 4-inch bell peppers, strawberries, tomatoes, melons, watermelon, zuchini, and cucumber. What I wanna know is for how long should I pinch off the flowers or fruit on these plants so that they may grow faster and give a better crop later? Also, how many fruits should I leave on the plants later on? The watermelon vines are about the size of a basketball now and have several blossoms and 1 tiny watermelon each. The melons and strawberries are only about 3 inches tall. The peppers, zuchinis, and cucumbers are about 1 foot tall and have flowers and/or some tiny fruit, and the tomatoes are about 2 feet tall but no fruit yet. Thanks, appreciate any advice!
