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.
This cake looks terrible, but it tastes great! Now take a bite out of this tiny ad:
