I put all new organic soil in my garden last year. I didn't put in any compost or other fertilizers. My tomatoes were extremely dissappointing. My peppers were fine and wouldn't stop producing. My greenbeans had bugs on leaves and beans.
My squash got bores My eggplant never got big enough to pick.
I know now that I needed to add compost and manure. I started a compost this year. When do I put the compost in the garden and do I till it in with the old plant life left in the garden?
