We put in some raised beds this year - using cattle, horse and llama compost manure and lava sand and scrapings from the bottom of a stock tank that was cleaned out.
Nearly everything in the beds has a problem, the most obvious being misshaped, stunted leaves on the tomatoes (the entire plant). The squash looks bad and so does half the beans. The parsley and basil and one cantaloupe are fine.
The leaves look like they have been sprayed with herbicide - but there's no way. Some of the compost came from neighbors, and I do not know if they use chemicals or not. Soil is moist, not soggy or dried out. The tomatoes started looking bad from the very beginning, but I thought it was the cool, damp spring we had. It's in the 90's now and they still look awful - the entire plants have curly, stunted leaves.
I am ready to pull up everything and start all over. HELP!
