  • dont feel bad tomatoe plants can be finiky. too much water not enough sun or too little water and sun or too much fertilizer or not enough. i never had much luck with tomatoes myself if i can finally get them to grow they are small and never seem to wanna turn red even after the first frost.

  • Don't feel bad! I can't keep anything alive either. My kids are doing OK though. Sometimes, it's just not meant to be. LOL

  • Don't blame yourself, the past couple of years have been bad for tomatoes, they get blight and they are history.

  • Don't feel bad... I planted a garden (about 9x11) and out of it I have a grand total of 4 tomato plants and 1 cucumber vine.. and a ton of weeds. I even killed my bonzai tree. I'm awesome like that.

  • Do not feel bad. I come from a long line of successful gardeners- fruit tress, berries, a plethora of veggies and entire herb garden- I have zero interest- give me some potted herb plants, and I'm good. Now cooking with the yield, I'm your girl. So they grow it and give it to me to prepare!

  • Every year I try to grow stuff or get a plant and always figure If i can keep the kids alive I must be able to keep plants and veggies alive. Never works that way...
