Answer: Based on your description it is impossible to diagnose the problems with your vegetables with any certainty, although when a variety of plants fail to do well it can often be attributed to either the weather (too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry...) or some sort of soil problem, or possbily a combination of both. Most vegetables do well in a rich, evenly moist soil well amended with organic matter. The best way to check your soil is to run some basic soil tests and then make any adjustments as indicated by the results. Your County Extension (535-7161) can help you with the tests and interpreting the results.
While I hope you enjoy your membership in the National Home Gardening Club, please note that there is no affiliation between that group and the National Gardening Association (http://www.garden.org).
Good luck with your garden this year!
