I live in Alabama and I built a raised bed this year for just my pepper plants. I have a wide range of different varieties. When I built my bed, I laid a weed barrier down, added several inches of sand, than filled my bed with potting soil, top soil, compost, than tilled together. Planted my plants, and added crushed egg shells around each plant, and finished with a layer of mulch. In the south, during the month of April, we get alot of rain, and this year we have had temperatures to dip down into the 30's and 40's. I have had to cover my bed a couple of times. I've noticed on some of my plants, they are starting to turn a little yellowish. Is this due to too much rain, and cooler temperatures? Should I just give them time, or is there something that I need to do?
