Jim I believe that COURAGEOUS is going to make it. It has alot of new growth on it and is looking real healthy. What have you been feeding it. LOL

Harold, This soil has plenty of organics in it. I planted Courageous Mid-May. I did not fertilize it until Mid June.
I used Drammactic K fish/kelp mid-June, end of June, Mid July, end of July. I haven't fertilized since end of July.
I did foilage feed it every 2 weeks with Drammactic K, but, haven't done that since end of July either.

I'm not familiar with Drammactic K do you buy it localy or do you have to order it. I mostly use Mills Ease feed.

I had to buy Drammactic K via mailorder:

Next season I'm going to brew up Alfalfa tea and add the Drammactic K in with that. I'll scoop out a bucket full of Alfalfa tea from the garbage can and then add the fertilizer to the bucket.
