mine is looking pretty good so far. Nothing dying at this point, but nothing getting really big or veggies yet. I am getting some sort of bug that is chewing on my basil plant though!

My Ovulation Chart
WOOHOO!!!!!!!! i have to share, I planted a peony root back at the end of May and wasn't seeing any progress from it. I coudn't see the eyes so i dug it up several times to see if anything was happening and finally realized it was panted upside down, and then sideways when i noticed some eyes growing. I talked to my MIL who has a background as a florist and she told me to just leave it as they take their time. Today i was watering and I saw some green starting to poke out!!! sooo excited that it is working and i can finally leave it alone lol
All my plants were doing great in my new raised beds... then I noticed that some of the beet tops were turning grey and shriveling and sying. Yesterday I noticed that a LOT of them had (I hadn't been out for a few days because of being tired and rain). I don't see any bugs anywhere. I haven't taken a photo yet. A quick look at internet suggestions suggests a deficiency of some kind... Any ideas?

Too much water perhaps?? I think of beets as problem free except for critters. (voles etc)
