Bring on the fertilizer

I am not a patient person. I have learned to accept this about myself.

I had intended to garden in an organic function utilizing 100% Mel's Mix, but I'm tired of my corn and other veggies paling in comparison to my brother's and other gardener's, so tonight I fertilized. I put a 9-12-12 fertilizer around my tomatoes, corn, eggplant, peppers, and American melons. The directions for the fertilizer recommended 2 tbs per plant, but I was worried about overfertilizing them, so I only put 1 tbs per plant. I guess we'll see over the next few weeks if it speeds up the growth and blooming.
