    Why would tomatoes and lettuce do poorly in a vegetable garden in a city while peas and beans do well?

    Saturday, February 18th, 2012

    A vegetable garden is planted in a vacant lot in a city. Peas and beans do well, but tomatoes and lettuce do poorly. What is the likely problem? How could it be corrected?

      Vegetable Garden?

      Saturday, January 28th, 2012

      So my brown thumb and I are going for take 2 on growing our own vegetables.
      🙂
      I had a tiny bit of success last year and managed to grow some broccoli, a couple of zucchinis and 1 yellow squash.

      My issue is this:
      If my broccoli (or tomato or pepper) row is successful, I now have… what, maybe 2 weeks to eat 9 or so heads of broccoli before it goes bad?

      Is there anything I can do to enjoy the vegetables of my labor for longer? I could probably freeze broccoli (could I?), but I can’t freeze tomatoes.

      I work so hard, and I want to be able to enjoy the things I grow.
