My friend called and said her TT garden is turning yellow. She is stressed out. Poor girl! I'm on my way this afternoon to check it out. My first thought is water.......

As in too much water? My slow growing basil is yellow-ing. We had a real downpour a few days ago and the sun was in hiding for a number of days. I added some organic fertilizer and will wait to see if it greens up.
Keep us posted for your diagnosis.

For me in Arkansas it was too much rain!   Some of my plants loved it but my tomatoes and peppers did not!

Yes too much water! Also may need a little chicken poo "Nitrogen" to get her plants looking good again.

It is newly made Mels Mix?  My plants were yellow and somewhat stunted my first year with purchased compost...a little chickity doo doo and fish emulsion over the next several weeks perked everything up nicely.

Turning Yellow Empty Update: Turning Yellow

Post  Pappy Slip 5/24/2014, 12:08 pm

Pretty sure I know what happened. The PH is 6.0....pretty dang good! Now let's look at the moisture. WOW!! way to much H20. 
Her beans are quite yellow. Maybe they will recover over time.

Her beans are looking better now. Actually all plants are perking up. Less watering seemed to be the fix.

Sorry, newbie here... I thought you couldn't over-water Mel's mix?

My basil has also developed a yellow tinge, and the tips of my parsley and tomato leaves have some yellowing, too. Being a newb, I thought I was under watering so I watered some more thinking the mix wouldn't let me overdo it. Now I fear I've been making matters worse! Is that likely the case?

Hi 66stitches, I have read the same. I will explain what I think has happened. I'm no specialist but this is the only thing that makes since. My boxes are on the ground and drains very well. The soil under my beds are full of rock. My auto water system runs every evening without any yellowing. The Table Top boxes I built has six inch cedar boards in the bottom with gaps between each. On top of that there is landscaping cloth. I level the box so drainage will be equal. With all those gaps I would have thought excess water would rapidly drain off but apparently it does not. My friend was told by me to water the heck out of it but everyday watering was too much. Someone else might have a different opinion. 
I think you can over water MM if excess water doesn't drain off quick enough.

Thanks Pappy! 

Sounds like my box is similar to the tabletop. It's on a slope so plywood bottom on bricks to level, with drainage holes. It also has landscape cloth lining it. Maybe I should try backing off on the water and see what happens. Thank you!

I agree, with your statement "I think you can over water MM if excess water doesn't drain off quick enough".  If something is blocking the drainage, then the roots can't breathe and will rot.  Good investigative work.
