Shade or Soil???
I'm new to this forum so please bear with me but I'm looking for some advice. My garden plot receives about 6 hours direct sun minimum during the Summer and when I first planted it, it I grew a fairly good crop of peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and squash. I've been grinding leaves into the plot in the Fall and mulching with straw in the Spring after I set my plants out. For the past few years, I still grow a good squash crop and the cucumbers produce well for three weeks or so but the peppers and tomatoes don't do so well. From all that I've read, I need a lot of sun for all of these crops but the exposure hasn't changed, so any guesses concerning what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you all in advance for any assistance you may be able to provide.
