This is my first year attempting to grow some vegetables and I have a
question about fertilizing after the plants are already fairly mature.
We have pumpkin, watermelon, and cucumber growing in separate places in
our yard. So far no visible fruits although I see a couple of female
pumkin flowers again so hopefully one of these will start a pumpkin.
Plenty of bees around so polination is not a problem. Plenty of
sunlight, plenty of water from the hose although it has been very dry
so no rain to speak of.
So I figured maybe I need some fertilizer. Is it ok to sprinkle it on
the ground above the plants and let the water bring it to the roots?
That's what I'm trying but I wasn't really sure about it.
Thanks in advance for any tips.
