This cracks me up. I feel exactly the same. This is only my second year with a garden and people are always asking me for advice. I tell them what I know but I always feel like a little bit of a fraud.
The way I'm starting to look at my garden is the way I look at hunting. I do my best to prepare a good environment for life to grow and thrive in, and sometimes it works out the way I want it to, sometimes it doesn't. It makes it all that much better when it works out.
Keep your tom's alive and they will get there eventually. EVERYONE I've talked to in TX is having a weird year. Nothing is fruiting like it should be. It's gotta be the heat.

I plant seeds in late winter under lights, nurture them into seedlings and in due time transplant them into my garden.
When they grow into healthy plants and produce fruit and vegetables to eat I feel kind of proud of myself as if I were the main reason for my success.
But it is years like this when I realize that I know practically nothing about natures secrets and probably shouldn't be offering advice to anyone else on the subject of gardening.
Does anyone want to buy a used genious cap at a good price?
