Answer: Rich, loamy garden soil, lots of sunshine and plenty of water are about all your veggies need to perform well. Is your garden still getting enough sunshine? Are you rotating your crops to discourage insect and disease problems? Amending with organic matter such as compost or aged manure? Peat is okay to use occasionally but it can lower your soil's pH if used exclusively and incorporated every year. Try shredded leaves, compost or aged manure this year - just in case. Or, you can have your soil tested through your local cooperative extension office or a private lab. If the pH is really out of whack, they can suggest amendments to correct it. Hope this information helps!
