Yeah should merge any veg threads.Cut away most of the sick looking stems a few weeks back as there were suckers ready to take over. Just removed the rest now and the plants look healthy, although a bit "thin". They're flowering, so might end up ok?
Almost all that basil is dead or at best, hasn't grown a jot since I put them in.
I do wonder if the combination of "worst soil ever" topped with a 6" mulch of unfinished compost wasn't the greatest plan ever Oh well, now that there's also 4" of woodchip on top, those beds should be great next year.
By the way, does anyone think we should merge this thread with the "Calling SMB veg growers" one? Calling SMB veg growers
I put a layer of cardboard on top of the soil then my unfinished compost on top of that. I planted my tomatoes through the cardboard (outside) and they have green tomatoes on now.
