Last summer, my fiancé and I tried to grow some tomatoes and peppers. We were not very successful. Our tomatoes were so tiny. And hardly any peppers bloomed. Are we watering too much? Could it be the type of soil. Last year we had them in containers, this year we are hoping to grow them in the ground. Any tips or suggestions. We live in Iowa and my grandfather used to grow wonderful tomatoes, unfortunately he has passed away and I can't ask for his advise.
