similar to another recent post I am having trouble with my plants just not growing. We live in Eastern TN near Knoxville.
We transplanted most of our stuff starting on Good Friday - then the weather could not make up it's mind what it wanted to do. So we were patient and tended to it trying to make sure it got enough water but not to much...
We have 3 large raised beds and bought what we were told was mushroom compost and mixed with our own compost of mostly yard rakings from last year. (I am very suspect of this so called mushroom compost now). Nothing is growing.
The spinach has had what look like burned leaves since transplanting. I picked those out but there are more. They have not grown at all (literally) since we planted a month ago.
So far the only good things is that it does not look like they are being attacked
Broccoli and Brussel Sprounts and Bush Green Beans are getting eaten but they are growing. (these are in the same bed as the spinach)
Tomatoes are not growing and getting sickly looking
Strawberries started out great but now getting eaten (same bed as the tomatos)
Okra getting eaten and has not grown
Zuccini grew a little but not much and is now getting eaten
Peppers were only recently transplanted but now getting eaten (same bed as okra and zucinni and now squash that was just transplanted since our earlier attempts did not do well so we bought new ones)
Can anyone give advice on what do about plant food or something else that would help them to start growing?
We just ordered Neem Oil as a friend said it worked great for him last year on the pest control (hope to have it by the end of the weekend to apply)
Any help would be tremendously appreciated!!!!
