I dont know whats going on, unless it is not enough sun? I have 5 4x4 boxes, two are on the se corner of the property, which gets some morning and late afternoon sun (due to neighbors trees) and 3 boxes on the sw corner which gets about the same amount (again, with the trees.) Im having problems with things not growing or not producing. i have pepper plants, cukes, melons, squash, eggplant, and herbs not even any larger than when they were transplanted. I have some corn in which is about waist high, and it set its ears already. The corn I started from seed, the rest I bought them all from a local farmer or they are the Bonnie transplants from Lowe's, and got them in last month.
I fertilized with a side dressing of 2-5-3 which I got at Lowe's at the start of July. I cant find 5-10-10 anywhere.
I want to clear out a box and start a fall garden in the se corner, but I dont want to waste the time and effort if Im not going to get anything. Can anyone help? Thanks.
