Folks,I'm pretty darn close to giving up on gardening. Since it doesn't look like we'll have our land tilled soon enough to plant a garden, I went ahead and transferred the plants from the packages they came in into bigger pots. I followed all the transplanting instructions, and today, the damn plants are looking terrible! They're all droopy, even though they're staked. How is that even possible? I'm wondering if I didn't water the plants enough after transplanting. I suppose that because they're in significantly bigger pots, there's significantly more dirt, which necessitates significantly more water. I thought I gave them plenty, but I went out today, and the dirt was already hard as a rock.
Hopefully I didn't already kill the little darlings and they'll be looking good as new in the morning! Really though, this is so frustrating!
