Raised bed soil and poor vegetables
Worst crop of radishes ever...I live in Zone 6, middle Tennessee; I have three raised beds, about 6 inches deep with bagged organic garden soil from Home Depot. One of the beds was begun with a three-way blend of topsoil, compost, and sand from a local nursery. In this bed I put my radishes, five rows, on April 7. I just ripped them out: none are more than an inch tall. The leaves are yellow and sickly. I cannot figure out what has gone wrong here. I suspect either black root rot, colder than normal temps, or a lack of trace minerals, as I water with filtered water, or a combination of all three. Perplexed also as to why my mescaline in another box, this one filled with organic garden soil from HD, is also merely an inch tall. Carrots and parsnip also useless. Any thoughts?
