A response such as “no challenges” will receive no credit. Examples: -The parsley keeps drying out and is slowly dying and I don’t know why, but the parts that are still green are still usable. -The broccoli and the lettuce continue to grow, but at a very slow pace. I am now being more diligent with using the organic fertilizer, but I think it will still be quite some time before either is ready to be harvested.
