Ive started my first garden in June and it seems to be doing well but ive only harvested a few squash and about a dozen peppers. Can anyone give me some tips on when to harvest and tips for pruning and mulches.
My whole garden contains:
two watermelon plants
one pepper plant (started with four but the other three died from what i was told shock)
four tomato plants( two in the garden itself and two off to the side of the house)
two squash plants
the whole garden is 5 by 5
the weird thing is that the squash was planted by seeds and it has grown the fastest but everything else already had grown to a foot before it was placed in the garden and two of those tomato plants were already a yard tall before we transplated them in the soil. There are no more squash and there are a lot of tomatoes but all of them are a deep green. As for the watermelon, on one they seem to just shrivel and die but on the other one two have grown to a fair size but i cant tell when it is right to harvest.
I also wanted to know if it was possible for me to plant some other plants at this time.
Thank you for the time
