    They will need about 5-6 hours of full sun.

    If your 10 day forecast does not show cold weather, you can transplant now. If it does, as long as you keep them well watered, they can stay inside for another week.

    They are lacking fertilizer, most likely. Give them some weak fertilizer, 1/4-1/2 the recommended rate on the package.

    Don't give up yet.

    It sounds like you have several pest issues in the garden. For the pests, such as the whitefly, cucumber beetle and vine borer (which is what took out your tomatoes, cucumber and squash plants), I would recommend treating your garden with neem oil. Organic and safe, but very effective on these pests. Here is more information: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm

    The strawberries were not your fault. They just do not produce well until the second year and the companies that sell those hangers do not mention this.

    Gardening has a learning curve and you will get results the more you do it.
