My garden needs first aid - fast!

15 years ago

This May I planted a very large vegetable garden. Let me add that I am a garden newbie. There is plenty of compost in the garden but I did not add any thing else except a small amount of fertilizer as I am trying to go organic. Everything was perking along until the last couple of days (late July). Now the leaves on many plants are suddenly and quickly yellowing. This includes my sunflowers, eggplants, squash and raspberries among others. I water every morning when the weather is hot. I have done some research it appears that my garden soil either has low iron or low PH. Any thoughts on this and any quick acting remedies to help? I am not clear if I can side dress with lime and other amendments at this point. Any advice is appreciated!
