- The weather wasn't ready yet. I'm pretty sure that we put our veggies in the ground to early. Even though it wasn't freezing out, it still did get pretty chilly at night. My garden growing cousin has confirmed this theory for me.
- We didn't have good enough dirt. Being first time gardeners, we just used any old dirt figuring it didn't matter. In retrospect I think our dirt didn't have enough nutrients to help our plants grow. Thankfully my neighbor has some great fertilizer, that they use on their garden, they're willing to share.
- I left right after the veggies went into the ground. My dad was in charge of the garden while my husband and I were on our honeymoon. I'm pretty sure that he took really good care of our plants, but I wasn't there to know how things were growing (or not growing)
