thanks man I appreciate it but this is a constant learning experience for me. When I first started posting in these threads, I was jealous AF looking at Pillage and some of the other poster's setups. Got lots of help from them along the way.

Shit, now you got me jealous.

This is the first garden at my new house, so I still have some work to do. Definitely plan on overhauling and expanding it.

my plants have been awful this year....just finally getting some tomatoes growing.

my raised bed may be too crowded - i have a 2ft by 12ft raised bed with 5 plants

I’ve got similar container bags and I’ve got to say that they absolutely kick ass.

Agreed. Definitely like them. Impossible to overwater.

Do y'all know any reason why my strawberries and zucchini aren't producing? Both plants are large and healthy and continue to grow/spread. They are in the same raised bed as some of my tomatoes, bell peppers, and jalepenos that are producing like crazy. The zucchinis have had dozens of blooms that never materialize to anything, but the strawberries don't even seem to flower.

I'm new to gardening this year, so any advice/info would be much appreciated!

Have you tried hand fertilizing?

It's a little hot for strawberries right now. They're generally a cool to warm weather crop, and will probably produce when it cools off a bit in the fall if you let them keep going. Zucchini could be the same issue depending on variety, or it could be a lack of pollinators. You can pollinate them by hand by taking a male flower when it's open and brushing the pollen onto a female flower. Female flowers will have small fruits under the blossom, all the rests are male.

Thanks for the replies!

I looked and couldn't actually find any female flowers! I guess it is just a sausage fest in my garden!!

I’m having the opposite problem with my cucumbers. It’s all female flowers. They have stopped making male flowers for some reason.

He meant hand pollinating. Take a paintbrush and brush the male flower to collect some pollen, then brush the female flower to distribute the pollen to the female flower. Same effect as a bee.

The male flowers are identifying as female. It is pride month.

It works really well. After reading that advice in one of these threads, I got a small paintbrush started doing it. I've had very few bees in my garden and I have more squash and zucchini than I know what to do with.

Anyone have any suggestions for getting rid of stink bugs in tomatoes? My neem oil mixture doesn’t seem to be doing to trick. These little bastards are taking out 20% of my ripe tomatoes and I’m ready for it to stop.
