My container gardening is done for this year. The carrots and radishes grew wonderful green tops, but they never produced any edible roots. The tomato vines never bloomed. The cucumber vines gave me several beautiful, tasty cucumbers before the bugs annihilated them by eating every leaf. Bit of a disappointment.
I learned a lot, including that the spot in the yard doesn’t get quite enough sunlight to grow vegetables.
As much of a success as I wanted? No. Waste of time? No. Failure? No. Try again? Yes, with some changes based on experience.
By the way, I planted marigolds to help keep the bugs off tomatoes. I started them in the same containers at the same time. The tomato vines are long dead, but the marigolds just recently bloomed.
We all learn as we go grow.
