Hey, I am a beginner when it comes to planting stuff so I want to ask if I can grow vegetables like tomatoes and peppers while using compost as the only source of nutrients for the plants, without using synthetic fertilizers. I mean, will my plants suffer deficiencies, or is it okay ?
I had a neighbor who had good results with a mixture of 50% compost, 50% topsoil. Too much organic matter can cause problems, however. Compost doesn't have all the nutrients your plants need, especially nitrogen.
