This is so true.
One thing I must stress is that I'm no gardener, if I was to class myself on a scale of 1-10 with my gardening skills then I would not even give myself a 1.
For the life of me I never expected some seeds I took out of a tomato last year to now be so tall I'm considering removing the greenhouse roof!
I think I knew trouble was brewing on Boxing Day when tiny shoots started to show, by March there was literally no choice but to put them outside and deep down I believed the frosts would kill them all!
On warmish days I would water them in the morning, on cold days I would not water them at all, I felt the soil to see how damp/dry it was , and at times found myself speaking to them as well
Tomatoes are now in full crop, so many in fact I can not give them away quick enough!
Thanks for all the replies, I read all of them as I know there are a lot of people out there in internet land who know what they are doing and being a noob to gardening I highly value all of the advice!
