Plant something new every year. You'll be amazed at what you learn once your plant starts to grow. I remember the year my mom told me she was going to grow celery. I thought sure she'd lost her mind. She lived in Iowa, celery would never grow there, I thought. But it did. And she loved it!
From then on, I've never been afraid to "jump off the bridge" or in my case, the deck lol, and try something new! It's a wonderful way to open your mind and that of others!

Could it be that there is root rot?
I would also check for ants and/or rodents that might be nibbling the roots/branches. (We have/had groundhogs nest in our yard because our neighbor has a veggie garden.)
Try adding 1 T Epsom Salt & 1 T Powdered Milk to 1 gallon of water. The Epsom Salt will promote a strong root system. The powdered milk will add Calcium to the soil & prevent blossom end rot.
