I have plenty of flowers on the plants and have watered every other day. The plants are exposed to sunshine, but not all day long as there are trees shading them to the North. Last year I planted other garden items, such as carrots and peas, and the same thing happened--nice plants, but poor results. The soil is fertilized soil, mostly with animal manure. I haven't had the soil tested, but am wondering if it might be lacking something. What can you suggest?
