    All growing vegetables need the naturally occurring elements: potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorous
    Mulch, leaf mold, aged manure, and compost all help to condition the soil. In addition to a slightly acid, loose, crumbly soil, vegetables require high quality garden fertilizer nutrients.

    Usually something with a good amount of nitrogen. Might wanna test the soil first.

    NO MAN MADE FERTILIZER!!!!!!!!!!!! I live in an area near woods and every fall I gather up all the leaves I can...usually a whole box of 30 gallon trash bags. over winter in the bags, in the spring till them into the garden area before planting anything....I always have great crop yields. Man made fertilizers wash into water streams, rivers, lakes and promote dangerous levels of plant growth that clog the water and kill off fish....If you don't live near woods, rake your neighbors yard for free....especially elderly who can not afford to pay...doing them a big favor and reaping a benefit....sometimes I work for a glass of lemonade or tea or if I'm lucky a homemade cookie...your generosity also allows them the opportunity to fellowship .... so many sit daily hoping for company to talk to.
