Corn And Tomatoes

I have planted a vegatable garden. This is the first garden in this area. Tilled several times prior to planting in sandy soil. The tomatoes and corn are not doing well. The tomatoes look like they are wilting. I pulled the yellow leaves from the bottom of the plants. I water them at least once a day or every other day. They are produce tomatoes. but the plants look ‘dwarfed’. The corn also looks dwarfed. The stalks are all different heights and even the small ones have the tassels like the tall ones. They fall over when watering. The zucchini, bell peppers, and cucumbers are doing well. The squash is kind of slow growing. Don’t know if I did not put enough peat moss on soil prior to planting. I have put the spray fertilizer on once since these plants started looking this way. Any suggestions?

Your watering program may be leaching the nutrients from the soil, always a problem with sandy soil. Try watering less, but deeply, and use your foliar fertilizer more often.

blood meal for nitrogen and bone meal for the roots
