A problem in the raised bed!

So I went away to Halifax for a few days and when I came back I noticed that a few of my plants in the raised vegetable bed were getting purplish leaves at the bottom – they look pretty healthy otherwise though. Google of course tells me this is some kind of nutrient deficiency, and commonly this issue can be related to phosphorous deficiency.

It hasn’t gotten below 7 degrees celcius even overnight since I planted things, but it is possible the lack of uptake is because things haven’t warmed up yet, however, its been quite warm for awhile so Im not convinced. In any case, I gave everything a dose of Miracle Gro 15-30-15 bloom booster yesterday for a little extra phosphorous for now. Also fertilized my starting-to-grow bulbs, the 2019 pepper garden, and container planted items.
