Well Bobby, I wish I knew the answer to this too. Hopefully someone will put up a reply and then we'll both know.
I think I have an inkling that just at least getting out there and actually being in the garden every day is going to be important.
Mine has suffered terribly from years of neglect and I am starting to try to reclaim it now. It's not going to be a quick process, I can tell.

I have found that watering and weeding the garden daily is the best thing you can do. When you weed daily It puts you down on the plants level. This gives you the best chance of noticing small problems before they become big problems.

Watering the garden during the hot and dry climate. Also check constantly for pests or any diseases. Timely attention in these cases will reduce the impact.

yes there are many thinigs to be maintained on a daily basis. Keep tabs on your garden, maintain a scrap book, maintain a non sticky shovel, lighten heavy pots, by filling the pot one-third to one-half full with packing peanuts. Have a rain gauge, restrict aggressive plants from taking over your garden by planting them in plastic containers. Help tangles roots loosen up, and protect your bulbs. For best gardening results create ideal garden soil. This can be done using organic material including fertilizer. Add nutrient which plants use for food and add conditioners thus sue nutrients efficiently. Composting and mulching are of great benefit to vegetable gardens in conditioning the soil. Check for few simple tips in this article on how to replenish your soil with organic waste http://www.redbins.ca/3-ways-get-rid-organic-waste/. Adding manure add the 3 major nutrients for the soil. Remember horse, rabbit and sheep manure are considered hot for its high level of nitrogen. Any time you can add well aged manure. During winter fresh cow and sheep waste can be added. Use well -rotted manure in case of heavy soil. Fall leaves over a year can make great mulch in a compost bin.

I am a novice in this field. Thanks for all your kind information.
You can add Notes to your Garden Logbook with the level of detail you require. These Notes may record specific Actions (ex. fertilize, water, harvest), Observations (ex. flavor and taste, yield) or general information. You can also attach specific plants and photos to these notes.
