Nutrient burn without adding nutrients?

hi there, growing outdoors in Gaia living soil, no nutrients added asides from the recommended amount of Gaia 4-4-4, a bit of sheep manure and additional worm castings before planting. Been outside for 4 weeks and an additional 4 weeks inside from seed. I was about to start adding 1/4 strength nutrients after the 4 week mark till I noticed some tip burn. Is it possible the roots hit a hot spot in amended soil, or is this not nutrient burn?
thanks for any help in advance

Hello @Jbreezy great garden you have going.
I don't do soil but it looks like the start of a deficiency to me.
Tiny brown on end looks like typical nute burn but the yellow around it makes me think there is something else going on there.
As I said not a soil guy so ill ask an expert before I say something wrong.
@Emilya do you have a minute to look at this girl.
Thank you.
Bill

Could have been a hot spot... how did you add the sheep dung... did you mix it all about or put it in its own layer? Those bottom leaves could have once been touching the soil too... thats more what it looks like. The rest of the plant looks fine from what I can see.
