So i live in central california near the capitol.
i started this year with my first attempt at gardening. I planted Tomatoes, Squash, Basil, and Carrots... all container gardening, being in a suburb.
i figured out quickly that I made a mistake with squash, and didnt have the proper room to have it grow. it's still alive but small and not going anywhere.
today i discovered that what i thought was carrots was in fact not carrots at all O_o and i still don't know what it is that i have been caring for for several months. lol
also today I discovered white flies on my tomatoes, and possibly rot
so now i am praying my basil survives... ive eaten a few means now with this plant, so i at least accomplished that.
Basically, i have SO MUCH to learn. Ive never done this before and I can use all the help i can find. So i sought out a forum such as this one to talk all about vegetable gardening and learn from my mistakes and i gain more knowledge from more experienced growers
I want to give it a last go and try a few plants for fall, try carrots again, maybe another basil plant, some spinach, or anything else that will survive if started this time of year.
I hope to gain a lot from this place
