My first epic gardening fail was neglecting my garden. I started out on the right foot…I tilled the land three times (and by I, I mean my boyfriend) and cleared out all the weeds before I planted.
I’m not a botanist. So I don’t know why I thought I would know what each plant was once it sprouted. Are my tomatoes sprouting or is it a weed? It's anyone's guess really.
Melons and Pumpkins usually do better in the fall, so why I thought it was a good idea to plant them in the spring in Southern Georgia is beyond me.
The one thing my garden produced en masse was zucchini. I grew the biggest, fattest zucchinis that I’ve ever seen in my life! These suckers were huge!
I fenced off a small area of my back yard for my garden. It’s probably about ten square feet. I figured that was enough space to grow a small variety of garden herbs and vegetables. Unfortunately, I failed to consider how big some of these vegetable plants can get.
