My garden soil is a mixture of light brown sand, peat, compost, leaves and grass clippings (alot of grass clipping lately). It drains well but this year the plants were very hearty but the green peppers were small if at all as were the carrots, pole beans and tomatoes, even the hot peppers which are typically a good size and quantity were small. Is my soil ph all goofed up?

such as fish emulsion, bone meal, and seaweed/kelp. Follow package instructions.

After planting, add a 1-2 inch layer of mulch. Mulch is great to help retain soil moisture, reduce weeds, and as it breaks down it provides nutrients to the soil. Any organic matter can be used as mulch. Try compost, bark, wood chips, straw, or pine needles. As it breaks down, dig it into your soil and add more.
