Seeing yellow?

Post  Weedless_ on 6/7/2010, 9:55 am

I am just wondering about this. My plants are looking pretty darn good so far, some are slower, some are faster, but all growing, and no major bugs have been visiting yet Smile.
However, I did notice that a lot of the plants, in particular, bush beans and radishes started losing deep green color and turning a slight yellow. I have been watering them at good intervals, though we did get a lot of rain this week.

Anyone has any ideas on why this is happening?

The dark green color is normally the result of nitrogen. I am told that is what greenhouses pour on to get that deep green. Nitrogen is supposed to be good for leaf growth.

Maybe add some fertilizer, compost tea or "top dress" your plants with compost.
