Here we are for day 10. It's easy to remember, day 10, we want to apply our 10/10/10. We're going to use on cup. 10/10/10, 10% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus, 10% potassium. It's really the phosphorus and potassium that we're looking for here. If all you can find is 11, 11/11 or 7/10/9 o...

<p>Here we are for day 10. It&#39;s easy to remember, day 10, we want to apply our 10/10/10. We&#39;re going to use on cup. 10/10/10, 10% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus, 10% potassium. It&#39;s really the phosphorus and potassium that we&#39;re looking for here. If all you can find is 11, 11/11 or 7/10/9 or something like that, as long as the last 2 numbers have around 10%, it&#39;ll work just fine. We want to use on cup. I only have a half cup scooper, so I&#39;m going to do 2 scoops. Spread it out just like you did your fertilizer previously. It&#39;s important that we do this 10/10/10 on day number 10. The reason that&#39;s important is because by day number 10 we&#39;ve started to develop some soil particles inside the bale. One of the things that you&#39;ll learn if you study about phosphorous and potassium is that they&#39;re not nearly as soluble as nitrogen. They tend to bind the soil particles, so putting them on on day number 10 which is a point in the conditioning process where we&#39;ve started to develop some soil particles inside the bale. That&#39;s it for day number 10. We&#39;ve applied our 10/10/10. See you tomorrow for day 11.</p>
