I was wondering when the broccoli transplants would stop looking so spindly when I realized I had forgotten to fish emulsion them. I have mulched and composted my garden for twenty years and there is still need for extra nitrogen for some of the plants. The cauliflower transplants are thick and bushy but if l don't use fish emulsion on them every three weeks I'll get heads no larger than three inches..
I've never fertilized root crops and always get perfect beets, but neglecting the cole crops is now an obvious mistake..
