Thanks for all the encouragement! I'll keep trying... and enjoy the process. Last year I planted tomato and peppers in pots and reaped some but this year I did the same thing and got no vegetables. I don't know what I did different but I'll keep trying.
Joanna over watering is never my problem. It's under watering I would say. We live in the desert and there isn't very much humidity here. I have tried the watering bulbs and those things work great as long as you remember to check to see if they need to be filled. LOL
Great advice! I forgot the garden journey and I do not want to make the same mistakes next year! I planted my garden way too close and the harvest was harder this year I do not want to make that mistake again! Thank you!
I want to be the person my Dog thinks I am!

Good advice from Joephine. I just wanted to add that I used to kill a lot of houseplants, too and now, I've learned that most people kill houseplants by too much watering. Now, I just water when they start to droop and they're doing so much better.
Believe me when I say yes there is hope. I haven't been able to keep a house plant alive for years. This year we planted a fair size garden and I am still reaping tomatoes from it. Some things didn't fair well but it wasn't anything that I did. Don't give up. Also keep a garden journal and you won't keep making the same mistakes. Good luck.
I hope to learn a lot here about growing things. I'm ok with ivy but everything else just goes brown-and-dry or brown-and-mushy or nice and green but no fruit or flower. I love trying but have a serious brown thumb instead of green thumb. Can that change, is there hope?
