My hawaiian umbrella tree got yellow leaves, and the new leaves got smaller and smaller, until it died.

Yellow leaves means too much water usually.

Anyways I keep a vegitable garden in my backyard. It includes:
Sweet Bananna Peppers, Crooked Neck Squash, Two types of bellpeppers, Tomatoes, and Red HOT Chili Peppers!

I also am growing a Lemon Tree, a Naval Orange Tree, and a Louisiana Sweet Orange Tree.

I live in Louisiana and these are all popular around here. One thing I dont grow which is a MAJOR crop in my area is the Strawberry. My town is considered the "Strawberry Capitol Of The World"
We hold a Strawberry Festival every year which brings in thousands of people from around the country every year.

Is it the heat that makes them impossible to grow?
I remember when Mom grew strabwerries, she covered them with straw (big surprise there ). She did this because we started growing them when it was still very cool. Sometimes frost would form outside and that would kill the berries, hence the straw.

My father is crazy about blackcurrant bushes siiw One of my first memories is sitting under one of those bushes, in that wonderful smell from its leaves, stuffing myself with the berries! Now we probably have around 20 of them in my parents' garden, and more around the cabin!

I know that beans and tomatoes like to 'climb'. There are actually wire devices that you can stick in the ground which the plants will climb up. I'm not sure what they're called, but they're cylindrical in shape with four vertical wires that you stick into the ground. Anyways, beans and tomatoes love those things smile

I'm so jealous! I need my own veggie garden; it would save money and I won't have to be afraid of what I'm eating.
Hmm, the only advice I can give you is give 'em some love wink , and don't eat the peppers when they're green 'cause that just means they're not ripe yet (which is why green pepper's are a nightshade vegetable).

I wish I had room to grow some vegetables, however my apartment only has a small balcony. I might be able to grow one or two tomato plants, but I don't like tomatoes ^^

Get a closet growing kit. You can see them advertised in magazines like High Times or Cannabis Culture, because they are mainly used by people growing pot(your closet is a good place, no one can see), but you do not have to grow pot, you can grow whatever you want. They come with a grow light and everything. Apparently the good one work quite well.

Actually there are several hydroponics stores around here where I could purchase indoor growing supplies...the problem is I have no space indoors either ^^
I guess growing vegetables will have to wait yes
