adding lime to vegetables?
I'm embarrassed to even ask this question. Because my vegetable garden hasn't been doing that hot (plants haven't thrived and are yellow), I checked the soil and it's acidic and I need nitrogen. I now know this is something you do BEFORE you plant. Makes sense. I purchased all of my garden soil so I thought that meant I didn't have to test...anyway....can I add lime now that I already have vegetables growing in the soil or does the lime need to go deep down in the soil? I was going to add the prescribed amount to the top of the soil and gently work it in a few inches.
