Re: Why is my garden not growing?

It sounds like there's some nitrogen deficiency definitely. I think if your whole garden is this way and has been for some time you need to start from rock bottom and get a soil ph test. A local nursery can tell you where to get one, may even be able to do it. What I personally would do this late in the season is locate some aged horse manure... lots of it.. and mulch your plant beds deeply. Give them a good 4" to 6" of manure. Liquid fertilizer at this point is going to shock them and cause a lot of rapid soft growth that will bring on pests so be on the lookout for infestations.
