I know there have to be some gardeners on here. I tried some container gardening last year as the critters in the yard get to everything before I do if I plant in the yard. I had mixed results. Good with the herbs, tomatoes and root veggies; not so good with beets (birds kept eating the greens), strawberries (dried up nubs) and rhubarb (stalks shriveled and died ). Well, come spring I open the garage after a long cold winter and there's my rhubarb plant with yellow leaves but 3 perfect stalks of rhubarb. No light, no water, no sun for months and it grows; but when I pamper it, it dies. What gives?
