Nitrogen In Soil – Too Much

I have over-fertilized my garden. My tomatoes have been in the ground about 6 weeks and are growing, but there aren’t a lot of blooms or fruit. Is there anything I can do to offset the high nitrogen levels at this point? I don’t usually start picking them until early August.

You can try to add some phosphorus to the soil. Bone meal or a “bloom booster” fertilizer will do this.
