We have planted our garden twice now (spring & fall) and have had nice big plants but little or no fruit. what are we doing wrong? How often should we fertilize and when do we start the insect control as we live in FL. Thank you

Full sunshine, plenty of water and a feeding (10-10-10) every 4-6 weeks should improve your harvest. Be sure you are growing the right types of vegetables for the season. Cool season crops in the fall; warm season crops in the spring. Lettuces, cabbages, spinach, peas and beans are a few of the cool season crops you can expect to perform well; tomatoes, peppers, corn and melons are warm season crops. As long as the plants are putting out healthy growth, they should perform well for you. Hope you have a bountiful harvest!
