Re: CULT: Alfalfa After Bloom?

Assuming I get around to it and am not just fertilizing the weeds. i.e., weeds are either well roundup'd or othewise under control.

I usually don't fertilize in spring before bloom - too risky here with late freezes. I don't want to stimulate rapid growth that early, & soil here is naturally fertile.

Thanks for the reminder re: alfalfa, Anner. It seemed to make a difference the first time I used it here, but not? in subsequent applications. I concluded (no proof!) there were probably some micronutrient benefits that didn't require yearly application. But I have some new rows where I'll add some.

<Does anyone here ever fertilize with any chemical fertilizer  right after
bloom? As a routine sort of process? >
