Hi,

This is the first vegetable bed I have built and try to grow winter vegetables. I planted burpees seeds and I have lot of leaves for all them showing up and they are 1-2 inches higher than the soil level.I have been watering them everyday using the drip zone from lowes as well as it has rained 3-4 times last one month. My question is

The Radish leaves and peas leaves have started getting black dots on some leaves and I am worried that it might be some disease, What do the experts think? What should I do? Also I got the soil from natural garderner one month before

Hill Country Garden Soil: a multi-purpose blend of premium composts, soil, composted rice hulls, and decomposed granite.
Great for natives, xeriscapes, herbs, and vegetables. Recommended for raised beds and large planter boxes. A LADY BUG NATURAL
BRAND

Do I need to add any fertilizer or manure now? if so what kind?

Thanks in advance for all the help!

Please post images. Without them, it's impossible to be certain of the diagnosis.

looks like grey/black leaf spot...alternaria spot.

also, your soil might be magnesium deficient (maybe due to pH or level deficiency) given the look of the older leaves.

Where do we get our soil tested? I am seeing little black spotd on my OKRA plants too! Can somebody confirm the cause of the above problem?
