Are you having any success with any other crops?

One of my zukes is doing great - the Black Beauty - The yellow zuke is not doing well at all. Those are the ones that seem to be having BER issues. I have 3x tomatoes, two have not produced anything yet but they seem to be healthy. The third has produced a couple tomatoes but they ended up with BER as well. Sad Have 3x different peppers as well - one has 2x fruit on them - the others are doing...ok. Not great though. They seem "twisted" and "gnarled" up for some reason.... Peas aren't doing well at all. green beans seem to be doing OK - not great - not terrible.

A lot of my crops this year did not seem to be doing great and so I got a load of aged manure (basically compost) and have top dressed everything, and I have found everything has improved, and is flourishing.
It sounds to me like perhaps you are lacking in something. The other thing I did for my really pale peas was to water them with the seaweed fertilizer.
For some reason Mels Mix (though I did mix it according to instructions) did not seem to be quite enough for my garden. However now I have my mels mix squares and then top dressing with composts, I have it all
I have well drained soil and I have nutrient rich soil.
I have not seen much sunshine this year only rain flower

Thanks for all the help folks... I think the cukes are beyond saving at htis point... can't really find a green leaf on there at all now... time to get rid of them and start over... Will get another bag of compost (wonder if I should get a bag of chicken or a bag of steer - one of each will be too much) and top dress/mix it in when I replant. Hopefully it will be better next time. My home-made compost still has a long ways to go before it is ready for use. And I will stay on top of things a bit more and keep it trimmed/watch it closer and hopefully keep it from getting this bad again if/when it starts causing problems. Sad
