Hello everyone! I just planted my first few veggies a month ago and have had most of them spring up. But a few didnt and I know I am making a lot of mistakes. Below are a couple pictures of sick looking plants and my green house. Also, here are the mistakes I know I am making.
1. The door is left open because it gets way to hot on sunny days. I am getting an air conditioner to correct this.
2. There are a few holes in the plastic about the size of a silver dollar. Will this matter? Should I cover it with clear tape?
3. The soil I am using was gathered when I dug a very large hole in my back yard for a separate project. The dirt is from 8 feet down or so and because of that I thought it would be nutrient dense. But based on my sick plants and its very light brown color, I am beginning to suspect otherwise.
4. I often forget to water them and they will be bone dry by the time I get to them. I suspect this is causing a lot of the harm to the sick ones and may be the reason some of them did not come up. I set an alarm on my phone to correct this.
If anyone has the time to look at my pictures and give me any advice that you can, I would very much appreciate it! Thank you all for your time and help!
