My pepper plants are starting to look yellowish and don't appear to doing well. From other posts and the look of the soil make me think too much water is the issue. I created a new raised bed this year in a new location along a fence which is only partially enclosed. It seems that much of the water from the backyard and likely the neighbors seems to run down into and alongside this bed. I put store brought soil on top of our terrible clay soil. It worked well last year in a different area with no drainage issues. Is there anything I can do to help dry out the soil?
Even if I can't save things for this year, any ideas on how to fix the bed so I do not have the same issue next year?
