First Time Gardener - Not Doing So Well
First Time Gardener - Not doing so well. We rent so I decided to plant the fruits and vegetables in 10 gallon bins and 1 20 gallon. I live in Denver, CO, and it's pretty dry here. The humidity is usually 40-50% at night and as low as 15% during the day. So I was watering them everyday, yet most of my plants were wilting. Someone suggested I might be watering them too much and this can cause wilting. So I drilled 4, 1/2 in holes in each bin, and 8 in the big bin. I did this yesterday and today, so I am still waiting to see if this helps. I did notice the soil was wet that came out of the drill holes. I also took the plants that I planted in their organic pots, I took them out of the pots and replanted it. I used the pot shards and covering for the soil. I will probably get mulch this weekend. The soil on the top was getting really dry, even though 2 inches down is where it was still moist. Does anyone have any suggestions?
