Eighteen pepper plants - 14 are turning yellow and are wilting. Watering is done by flood irrigation in ditches on either side of the rows, not quite finished grass clipping compost was plowed into the soil in early spring, plants were covered in a tent at night until after last freeze. My partner in the garden prefers letting the soil dry out before reflooding.
We've been told the compost has burned the plants, that they've been over watered - I disagree but I'm willing to listen!
Advice on what's happening and suggestions for what to do now will be appreciated!
