Hi Sage...collect some garden soil and take it in for a soil test to
make sure exactly how alkaline your soil really is and what minerals
might be causing a problem. You may not need to amend at all, or you
may only want to amend a certain area for specific plants. After that,
you can look for better ways to boost yields, and you should be able to
do that without the fish and blood products, although those are usually
the cheapest routes.
