For example, I grew my first tomato this summer :firsttomato: And zucchinis and yellow squash and salsa peppers :) [/quote] We're renting, so I can't have a real garden. I decided to do what my dad used to do. He had a few 5 gal. buckets and would plant a couple of tomato plants and a couple of zucchini. I did everything he did,, but mine aren't doing so well. One zucchini is dying and one watermelon is too. Then, something ate the whole bottom off my first tomato last night. Probably one of the sneaky squirrels. They are mad because we got a metal baffle to put on the bird feeder pole and they can't get to the feeders anymore. [/quote] Awww, how disappointing that some sucker ate the bottom of your tomato. It can't be bad if you HAD a tomato, so you are doing better than you think. And some little critter had a gourmet feast from it. If it was in a bucket and eaten from the bottom, you think it could be a groundhog? Hard to say I guess with so many things liking them. Never saw a squirrel eat one from the bottom though. I'm doing mine in buckets this year too, and my Early Wonder started ripening, and I watered it, then it poured rain, so it split in a couple places. Have more green ones, but the split one will still taste good even though it's not the belle of the ball. Have one of my green Kelloggs Breakfast tomatoes waiting for mod approval. Got the pic tonight so it's not great, but it's something. It's easy to be disappointed in gardening, and hope you won't be. It'll all work out, you'll see. Edited to add mater: :grnmater: [/quote]
