Logan –

You might want to check your soil first before you put potash down.  If you have a crop that likes potassium and your soil is K deficient you might want to try some sparingly at first unless you know the concentration of phosphate.  Check the bag – it should give you a percentage.

Cat and I use a soluble 10-10-10 mix (10% Nitrogen, 10% P2O5 Phosphate and 10% K2O Potash).  I prefer the spray application because it gets into the soil quicker.  The only drawback is that I have to apply every 4 weeks, but we’re out in the garden every day so it’s not a big deal.  You can go as high as 40% but the 10-10-10 mix is easy and I don’t have any concerns about burning the leaves.

Most of what I’ve read about the granular stuff you have is that the best time to put it down is well before planting so it has a chance to break down and condition the soil.  In Virginia we would do that in the fall.  Good luck.

Now, tell us more about the cukes in milk bottles??????
