    I love having a vegetable garden, but have been having the same problem year after year. Huge, beautiful, healthy plants, but no veggies. Not enough sun? Bad soil? The spot I have gets at least 6 hours of sun. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks..

    Depends what kind of plants; but large lush vigorous plants with not much fruit usually means too much nitrogen (or to put it another and possibly more ocnstructive way, too *little* of other nutrients, e.g. phosphorus and others). It would be worth having a soil analysis done.

    Have fun, good luck,

    Thanks for the replys! I've had the rabbit hutch on the spot for a year now, so I will try again this year. I will also have the soil tested. Thanks again! [​IMG]
