Soil

Asked August 16, 2019, 2:21 PM EDT

I ordered 20 yds of 50/50 (50 horse manure and 50 soil) however there was not 50 % horse manure maybe 10 %, for my vegetable garden. All of my tomato plants except 2 out of 30 died, their leaves turned a purple color. All corn and cucumbers were deformed with hard knots. I grow many jalapenos, they were all very large and were round and hard. I have been growing here for over 20 years and never had any problems. What in the soil could have caused this nightmare.
Thanks Joe
