A little googling brought up these additives to increase potassium levels

Kelp or Seaweed Meal or Kelp,Seaweed Extract - Quick release source of Potassium

Greensand

Granite Dust - Very slow release

Alfalfa Meal

Bananas sounds great. Could I just drop the peel in and let it decompose at any time?

M^2, also look up Epsom Salt. Cheap and with multiple home uses.

I googled it...I was just wondering if anyone had reccomendations...I guess I didn't say that! WHAT?! Shocked You people don't read minds! Ack! Shocked

Epsom salt! I have that!

My radishes are not bulbing....I pulled all the little teeny guys up, wanted to add a little something for potassium and try again. We love our radishes and look so forward to them.

I am glad I planted a lot of cool crops this year...looks like its a good summer for them here. Our weather has sucked so bad. We had a couple weeks of hope and then it just turned nasty again. Sad Coeur d'Alene county just asked for Federal Agriculture help claiming the farmers this year will be destroyed without help...all the rain has destroyed/rotted so much Sad It is so sad.

Anyway! Thanks for the help guys...if you have personal experience with any of these items please let me know. Thanks....
