If you are growing things like lettuce or herbs, top dressing with compost should suffice. Stronger, taller plants require fertilizer. The plant should be actively growing and have at least 2 sets of true leaves before fertilizer is added. The actual temperature is less important. Always water well prior to applying fertilizer to minimize the risk of root burn. I found an article that covers all things vegetable for Tx gardeners. https://agrilifeextension.tamu.edu/browse/featured-solutions/gardening-landscaping/fall-vegetable-gardening-guide-for-texas/
