sob, this is the worst garden I ever had and I have hardly started. I wonder if someone can tell me what went wrong. we started seeds on the 18th of march. Must have been the worst date possible. would you believe they still are in the two leaf stage. they just simply wil not grow. all of them, tomatoes, cabbages green and purple, kohlrabi, broccoli, flowers, peppers. even cucumbers. the only thing I did different to years past is that I used storebought potting soil with one third sand mixed in, and it is a new garden. . I have a small greenhouse. I must say the lettuce, spinach and radishes etc are very measly too. Nothing seems to want to grow. this is a new experience for me. OUr land has lain fallow for 15 years at least. we bushhogged it once a year and left the grass, weeds on the ground to rot and build up the soil. must not have done much. I always thought grass was manure that the cow had not eaten. beets look the worst. everything sprouts and then quits growing. the only thing that looks normal are the onions and parsley. so far. and the buckwheat that reseeded itself from last year. (I had planted the garden in a green manure crop that included buckwheat , beans, clover and sunflowers). I guess it is too late to buy brassica plants . I got some potbound ones at the amish greenhouse...hope they will grow. what does not do well in Kentucky at all? what grows well? My mother in law just says she always could raise anything they wanted. my neighbor says you can not grow anything here without 10-10-10. Heaven forbid. Patience is a bitter herb, but the fruit is sweet.
