White mold or fungus in soil? What's up?
So, I've been working with a small plot of land for a veggie garden for a couple of months now, a raised bed that I made with my boyfriend and used purchased soil to fill. A couple of months in, I noticed that we were getting a lot of mushrooms in the soil, which I thought was pretty strange. Anyway, now it's the middle of summer, and I noticed when I pulled up some bolted lettuce that there was a lot of white, mold or fungus-like stuff in their roots. This garden bed has really not produced as well as I'd hoped -- a lot of things have been stunted, seeds haven't come up, etc. I'm starting to wonder if my soil is just bad, and if so, if there's something I can do?
