My husband and I started my first vegetable garden, he says he has done this before. We rototilled aged horse manure into it and then planted. Well needless to say my vegetables are not growing and they are not a healthy green. I live in the pines and the area we planted had pine and oak trees dropping there needles and leaves in the area. The nice man at the hardware store said this area (California Sierras) has a lot of acid in the soil. We did a soil test and the nitrogen test didnt even register a color, so I am assuming I need nitrogen. Here is my dilemma how do I add nitrogen when my garden is already started? Do I need lime to bring the ph level up?
