green beans

I have a plot in a community garden and unlike other years, this year is the garden from hell. I have fertilized, but nothing is working. My green beans are beautiful, but the beans look washed out. The peppers arent' growing at all, eggplant bloomed and now nothing, I've gotten four cucumbers from three plants and my tomatoes? Well, they've never looked so bad. I need help.

RE: green beans

Hi Mindydean,

Sorry to be so slow in replying. We have certainly had some weather extremes here in Kentuckiana this summer so I would say your problems have probably been weather related. I know when the temps get too hot that tomato blossoms drop. Maybe things will pick up now as the temps are cooling a bit.

Do you have the same exact plot from one year to the next? If not, maybe the previous gardener on that plot did something that has affected the growing this season.

There's always next year that we always hope and plan to be so much better......I didn't even get any beans planted this year, so you are ahead of me there.

Where are you located in Ky? Might you be interested in coming to a small Plant Swap/get together of several Garden Webbers on Sept 11th? Hope so! See the link below, and if interested, please set up your Member Page email link so you can be reached....just go to the bottom of any page and click on the Member Pages link and follow the links from there.
