Cabbage Plants

Vegetables Did Not Mature

Anonymous added on October 20, 2011 | Answered

My cabbage did not head, brussels did not mature, kohrabi did not form, tomatoes stopped growing, no eggplants on bushes, no peppers, no beans, no corn - in other words my entire garden failed. I have been an organic gardener for over 50 years. Please tell me what happened. Was it all weather related?

It could have been weather, but typically when you have an across the board crop failure like that, some element is missing from the soil. I would strongly recommend taking a soil sample to the local extension service and having them test it. A severe micro nutrient deficiency (of which it could be many and only a soil test will tell) could cause this to happen.
