Backyard Veggie Garden Update # 5

Hello!

So here’s how the garden is doing, in spite of my lack of attention to it! Hopefully I will get it weeded and fertilized this weekend. Does anyone have tips for a good organic, non-GMO safe fertilizer?

Here are the sugar pumpkins! The only thing doing really well.

Has anyone tried this? Or can you recommend a good organic fertilizer for my veggies?
