Hi everyone! My modest garden is coming right along this year. Most of my plants(cukes, squash, okra, beans) I have no worries about getting large production from but there's two groups, Corn & Pumpkins I'd especially like to get healthy yields from. I've heard that the corn likes high nitrogen levels, and pumpkins need phosphorus when growing fruit and I know they'll need lots of water especially in the dog days of summer down here.
I've never used fertilizers before though...we always just stuck em in the ground and watered until the end of the season. Does anybody have recommendations for those two plants in particular? Or should I just let 'em go and see what happens? The ground is fairly fertile, but hasn't been very heavily composted ever that I'm aware of. It just had weeds growing in it before I dug it all up.
Edit: I've been eye-balling Bone Meal and Blood Meal I dunno if those would be the way to go tho.
