Growers recommend spoon feeding. Is this just when the plants are smaller and you can reach each node. Or does in continue with a slow amount through the water source - drip tape or other methods.

Spoon feeding is taking the recommended amount over a given period of time and dividing it into a daily amount. As an example, if the recommendation is 7 tablespoons every week, you would feed 1 tablespoon daily

That is what I take it to be dependant on your watering schedule

Spoon feeding with every watering for the win! Tiny amounts of what is needed based off your tissue tests.

Appreciate everyone's response. Last year I basically went with the amendments I added pre-planting from the soil sample recommendations from Western Lab. No other fertilizer added during the growing season , just some seaweed/kelp foliar spray on a rare basis. I need to step up and take the time figure out an easy method to spoon feed...
