I noticed that the stems of my tomatillos, tomatoes, and eggplants along with my longevity spinach, and beans seem to get very woody stems. Why is that, and is this going to harm the plants if it gets fatter above the wood chips?

    A photo will help. Aubergines have woody steam, it is normal. Tomatoes should be always green or white. You may get roots on stem. Woody only when they are dry and old and dying. Beans are also "woody". it is normal. Spinach doesn't have stem (but when they go flowering). "Woody" not "wilt". We need photos. Look for snails or root problems. – Giacomo Catenazzi May 27 at 7:35
