Re: Why is my garden not growing?

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.
hmmm ok. I will look for some manure to try to salvage what I have.

I am considering next year just moving the entire thing and doing some boxes in another part of the yard.
