I took over a community garden plot in Howard County. Tested the soil and it came back Low N, High P, Low K. I planned on adding bloodmeal in every bed to boost the nitrogen while avoiding P. Good idea? I also wanted to add compost and/or compost & manure mix to loosen up the soil more but I read where that might introduce more Phos. Should I be concerned about that considering I want to loosen up the soil esp. for root vegetables? I plan on growing various vegetables throughout the space including carrots, beets, sweet potatoes; lettuce, broccoli, kale, spinach, tomatoes, pole & bush beans, water melon, cucumbers and squash. Also, what would you recommend for fertilizer after the plants begin growing? 5-10-10? 10-10-10?
