Bell peppers

I had four plants in containers on the deck. The frost finally killed
them last week and they still had 30+ peppers on them. Prolific little

I fertilized it for the first time yesterday and it was well on its

Mugho pine dying

A couple of weeks ago I bought a small mugho pine intending to keep it

has been steadily turning brown ever since. It's on a...

Cabbage worms

Small blue caterpillars are turning my cabbages into lace doilies.
What can I use to control them that is not harmful to humans eating
the cabbage?

Rotten strawberries

The strawberries in my container garden are bearing fruit, but as the
berries get heavier, they lie in the dirt and the side touching the
dirt rots.
