If you are new to gardening you are going to wonder, “how much should I water, how much should I fertilize”? The truth of the matter is I do it by experience and not by science but that can get me into trouble.
Speaking of fertilizer, I try to keep chemicals out of the garden but I am not a purist about this. Once I put way too much fertilizer around the tomato plants and I proved too much is no good either. The overdose resulted in plants that turned yellow and grew tall and did not yield as many tomatoes as they should have.
