My only choice is a 10/10/10 granulated fertilizer. I use it on squash, corn, and beans, not tomatoes. It's the only thing that I can pinpoint cast at the nodes from not too far away, and where I still can't get close enough to work it in around the vine. Then I spray a bit of water from a hose onto the plants so they don't get fertilizer burn.



The vines grow out into the lawn. A couple of times I've had SVB attack and kill the main stem growing out from the garden bed. But the roots at the nodes kept the rest of the plant alive. Visually, you'd think I planted the squash in the middle of the lawn.



It would be nice to have the space where the entire plant is growing upon rich garden soil.
