With excellent advice, thanks to everyone, this novice has things growing nicely here in western Pa. My issues is browning leaves on Swiss chard, beets and spinach. They are planted in rows parallel to each other. Any clues to why the “browning”?

Other areas have corn, lettuce, carrots, celery, tomatos, peppers, beans, squash, cantaloupe, all doing nicely (fortunately)

Your description of “browning leaves” isn’t enough information to help us give you any real guidance. Can you post photos or describe where the browning occurs? Are they circular spots in the middle of the leaves or browning along the edges?

Looks like quite an old issue, but hope that you maanaged to solve the browning problem. For me I’d say to just check that you can pull out the right supplments from storage and also just to ensure that they are properly spaced and all that. As mentioned, pictures would really help!
