Mildew in Soil?
Sunday, 04 Mar 12 Cloudy 11°C / 52°F
I did some prep work for some of the raised beds today, and when I was turning the soil in two of the beds, there was some white fungal/mildew-like stuff in the dirt under the surface. The main picture shows the white stuff, and the second picture shows the dirt in the opposite corner of the bed that is still fine.
In this bed I had cucumbers, tobacco and mini bell peppers. The mildew was where the peppers were planted, and came up onto the inside of the planter box as well.
In the other bed was tomatoes, marigolds and basil. Both patches were heaviest in the south portion of the bed.
So … mildew or something else? Caused from … ? The beds aren’t swamped. They have decent drainage. Do I need to worry about it?
