I have been seriously gardening for over 10 years and I have had more problems this year then ever before. I attend to my garden, literally several times a day 7 days a week. I am sure this is a combination of things. Here are some issues

1. Pea seeds, only 1 came up, looked normal and di NOTHING after it emerged. After a few weeks (2-3) it was slowly dying so I pulled it and it popped right up, very little roots and the "root" smelled bad. It was really odd. I mean it looked perfect when it emerged then exactly the same for at least 2 weeks. No growth, none.

2. Edamame. Lot come up fine but with "burnt" brown patches on the outside of the 2 main "leaves" and sometime inside. About 1/4 never open with anything inside - the first leaves that pop out were not visible and never showed. This has been going on for a few weeks.

3. It looks like I have fungus on sunflower leaves & beet leaves.

4. Some peppers at random are doing terrible when ones right next to them are fine.

5. Young tomato and squash leave look wrinkled.

6. Okra is doing Terrible. What does sprout does really bad and has basically done nothing - and yes it has been hot.


I suspect I have a root problem among other things. I cannot stress enough everything I have grown many times before and every thing is the same. Like peppers, I started all from seed and planted side by side but some are doing much worse then others. Generally speaking most vegetables are doing great but certain ones are definitely not. My points is the issue is very specific and leaves some things alone.

I am very consistent and it is not showing with my garden this year.

2 Edamame pics here, this gets a lot worse and brown spots get bigger, dried out and darker quickly.

Yes but I made raised beds about 7 years ago never had issues. Many things are growing great. Corn. Squash. Zucchini. Garlic. Potatoes, lots of other herbs, asparagus, many sunflowers are doing fantastic, lettuce, beans etc.

Is there a pine tree right next to your garden or are you mulching with the pine straw?

Looks like the ground is staying too damp as you can see that fungus growing on the ground.

If you think you have root rot, you can try a peroxide soil drench. 1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide per gallon of water. It will aerate the soil and help knock out some of that fungus. I've used it before with success but everyones mileage may vary.

Pine trees are nearby but I mulch with pine needles and have for 7 years. He hasn't been as damp as it has in the past when I didn't have issues. Plus they are raised beds so I don't think that's the problem. The rotten parts of the sunflower leaves are literally appearing every couple hours faster than I can cut them off.

Im in SE MA zone 6b and this has been a “every problem” year.

My garden even though I was taking care of it turned on me and my lawn also back in 2020. So much so I abandoned the garden tore out the old beds and turned the whole mess under. Then I sent off soil samples.
My soil was a mess
To high PH for the berries
To low for the veggies
Almost a complete deficiency across the board even though I was bringing in compost and fertilizing.
My lawn same thing. Turns out the lime I apply every year was just enough to maintain the low PH I had.
Now 2022 - I have fungi, bugs, dry spots , damp spots and everything in between!

Maybe its time for some soil testing ?
Good luck and looking forward to your results..
