I don't even have a real garden, but I keep garden diary. I have herbs, salad, tomatoes and other plants in pots on our balcony and peas, beans and pumpkins in my mother's backyard. I have written down when I have done palnting, problems that I've had and everything I think is important. Some pages are about unimportant things, because I have felt like crafting and nothing important had happened with the plants.

These two pages are about strawberries that grow on balcony. On the right page there are four small envelopes, which contain tags with texts about strawberries.

These pages are about tomatoes. This is the first time I'm trying to grow tomatoes, and I've had been some problems, like leafs started to turn yellow in the beginning of summer. Right page is unfinished. I'd like to print a photo of one plant and glue it there, but I'm not sure if I know anyone who has god colourprinter, so I haven't done it yet.

i asked my mom about your tomato plants, because shes grown tomatoes for years and years.  She said that it might be 1)that theyre just at the end of their natural life cycle, 2)that they're not getting enough water, or 3)that theyre getting toomuch water.  I dont think its the first one b/c you said this was your first time trying to grow them, and so its probably that theyre getting too much water, because at least in my case when something seems to be dying i keep on giving it more water Smiley
i hope that helps somewhat...

Thanks xjoyfulsongx. My boyfriend too said it probably got too much water (he saw how wet it was). That time the plant was also in too small pot. I bought two plants at the same time and had only one big pot at home. Later I planted it into a bucket and gave less water and the leaves stopped turning yellow. Well, now they're starting to do it again, but I think that's normal in the end of summer.
