Hello, I was wondering if you had any advice for a novice gardener. This is my first summer gardening and I am feeling defeated because I feel my plants look unhappy. Any advice would be great.

You may have a few issues going on. The Zucchini leaf is showing signs of disease and I even see some pest damage.
The pepper plant seems yellow and may be suffering from the soil nutrients.
It appears your soil may be more suited for potted plants; I see slow release fertilizer in the soil.
I'm listing several links to help refresh you on the care requirements and some articles to help you.
Don't get frustrated, this is how we all learn!
