    Hi! I'd love advice on creating a lush summer garden. Right now my seedlings are potted. I'm about to get more space and will be moving them but unsure into what. My zucchini and acorn squash are blooming beautifully but I do have some yellow leaves and others that are greying and shriveling.

    My kale is a feast to some caterpillars. I've been removing eggs by hand but I'm sure there's a better solution.


    My cherry tomatoes probably need something to climb. I see some flowers but also some yellow Leaves.

    My eggplant are slower growers ‍♂️ pictures in this album https://photos.app.goo.gl/f73juQyfEXGq1c6w8

    Ok,, Looking at the third pic,, it is not summer squash ! What variety is it ? And need to know how big your pots are ? Squash are heavy rooted and usually do not do well in pots ! If yours are runners it may take more feeding than you are doing at present ! As to the bugs and other creepies,, are you trying to do this garden organically ? Or do you like to eat ?

    I agree with Mart, those pots look way too small for growing veggies. Do you have any contractor buckets you can drill holes in? Or giant patio pots?

    Plant your veggies directly into the ground if you can. It is time to give the roots more space.
