Growing Larger Veggies

Anonymous added on March 19, 2011 | Answered

I'm looking for advice on how to grow larger veggies in my upper New York state organic garden. I heavily composted last year, and still had fairly small carrots, peppers, and lettuce. Would side dressings of bone meal help? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It really depends on the plant. If you are eating roots or fruit, phosphorus will help, and if you are eating leaves, nitrogen will help. Potassium is also important for large growth, though scientists are not sure why. As always, make sure you have tested your soil to see what might be missing.
