Im having tons of issues container gardening here..
OMG..I am soo frustrated. I've only been gardening three years. We are a military family and we just moved from fort campbell kentucky to oahu hawaii. On this base housing i am not allowed to grow anything in the ground so everything is in containers, which is fine because at the last base i had a lot of container plants as well. So first i realized there are no bee's around here so I tried to pollinate the squash and cucumbers myself.to no evail. Then I found maggots in my sweet peppers!!! And now...My tomatoes, which are my biggest growers and what i use to make all sauces etc..and can. (i made pickels in the past too)..are now suffering from early blight!!!! The soil i bought for the containers was organic. I do use miracle grow but no pesticides yet. But at this point seriously considering using something because all the money we have put into re-creating a garden in a different location. I can't find many blogs on vegetable gardening for my area..so i am LOST...does anyone have any advice or ideas???? Much appreciated..
