Heirloom OP corn, amaranth, tomatoes.. Blood meal question  RSS feed

So a couple of months ago I planted a big patch of Golden Giant Amaranth and several plants are over 6 feet tall though some are only 3 or 4 feet. I also ordered some fast growing Aztec black corn from seedsavers as a gamble that it doesn't freeze before the yearly average of Nov 15th here. I'm very new at all this, but I've been told that corn is a 'heavy feeder' and likes a lot of nitrogen. I picked up a little bag of blood meal today. Would it be a good idea to put some on my corn when I plant it or maybe while its growing? How much should I put? How about adding it to those few stunted amaranths or my rather sickly malnourished looking tomatoes. If anybody can fill me in on blood meal that'd be awesome.
