Vegetable Fertilizing during heavy rainfalls
Hello I have a question about fertilizing my vegetable garden during heavy rains. This year we have consistently had heavy rainfalls so I have not had to water my garden. Usually I use a water soluable fertilizer but I feel like I would be over watering everything. Any suggestions on how I should go about fertilizing? I am growing tomatoes, hot peppers, spaghetti squash, French beans, zucchini and cucumbers. I use wood chips to mulch around all the plants. Thanks for your time and knowledge Adam

I would recommend switching to a dry, slow release, complete organic fertilizer like the excellent products from Down To Earth https://www.downtoearthfertilizer.com/products/blended_fertilizer/vegetable-garden/

If applied during the growing season, top dress and cover with mulch. And work it into the soil before next planting.
