719.5 Pounder

North Of The Border

I am a first year grower, an have a 40ish pounder on the vine, that is growing 1/2 pounds per day, as a peak. This is nothing compared to what I would like to see in future. However, my patch is now empty, and I can start prepping for next year. I wanted to know what fertilizer would be best, for both granular, and water soluble, and what else I can do. This year, the plant was small, only about 30-40 square feet, an next year they Wil be 100, and I will also use 202.5 Crews seeds, and that should help, as I used just generic Carolina cross seeds this year. I have watered pretty much daily, and wanted to know what I should do to get a 150+ pounder.
