There are 4 key factors that are crucial to have a successful garden in my opinion.
Timing is the 1st and most important step. You have to time your fall crops to the rhythm of mother nature. The season change around a certain time and this software helps predict the best time to start and plant your crops.
By making your self organized you take out the trouble that most gardeners suffer while gardening. I organize my seeds with a CD holder case and label all my plants with clothes pins to make sure everything is properly labeled and sorted.
To be a carpenter you have to have the right hammer to do the job just as a plumber has to have the right kind of wrench. Well to be successful starting a 2nd crop for the fall you need to have the right tool to start your plants indoor. I use the Sunleaves IV 4ft 4 x T5 blub Vitaluma Plus System. It has 4 grow blubs at 6500k. It is a great system for any beginner or any novice gardener.
You can find it online in places like http://www.ebay.com
The best advice that I could give to any gardener is to look for the positive. In gardening there is always a positive aspect to everything we do. No matter how big or small it is you can find if you look. The success is how to look for that eureka moment and store it in the grey matter between our ears.
