What do I add to my veg. garden soil when it is Nitrogen and Potash deficient. I am already going to add peat moss for the Alkaline soil. Thanks!

You will add nitrogen and potassium. You can buy them raw, but they won't come with instructions.

Otherwise, adding well composted compost will bring your nutrients back up, along with a 1/4 strength application of DOLOMITIC lime and full strength applications of either IRON or SULFUR will correct the balance of your soil Ph from being too alkaline.
