List would be too long. I went from 0 garden knowledge to SFG. So umm... to name a few...

Peat moss
Vermiculite for garden use (knew about it for insulation)
Garlic scapes
Daikon radishes
Trellising tomatoes (knew about staking and cages)
Winter squash vs summer squash
Cabbage worms / butterflies
Mulching
Drip irrigation
Topping peppers
How many plants grow and look. (Broccoli especially)
How fast spring goes to summer in my area

Water.


Too much water.

Not enough water.

Water at the wrong time.

Water, humidity and powdery mildew

Watering and slugs

Water repelling peat moss.

Water... if it doesn't fall from the sky regular wow, it's hard.
