Adding Nitrogen to Garden Soil
I have tested my soil and the nitrogen level is very low. What can I add to the soil to improve this problem? I want to plant my vegetables in about six weeks. Is blood meal safe?

Blood meal, which is essentially dried blood, is used often in the garden as a fertilizer for adding nitrogen to the soil (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/blood-meal-fertilizer.htm), so using it is helpful in the garden).
There is one thing to consider though. With blood meal, you can have issues with animals being attracted by the scent and rooting around where the blood meal is spread.
