We eat and plants need to also. It's amazing how many people choose not to feed their veggies. To each his own, but if you don't feed them it's usually half the crop. After you have your plants properly spaced, planted and mulched to control the weeds and keep the soil cool, it's time to feed.
I use man made fertilizer(Harrell's 17-6-12with minor nutrients) because I only have to put it on once for the whole growing s a son. Easy.
We also sell organic fertilizer.
Whatever you use, put it on now.
