Carolyn Herriot's natural fertilizer recipe extended version

Granular Organic Fertilizer Recipe
4 parts seed meal (alfalfa non GMO, canola or soy) or fish meal (wild not farmed)
1 part dolomite lime
1 part rock phosphate
1 part kelp meal
Granular fertilizer takes 3-4 weeks to break down before roots can access it. Sprinkle on soil around plants. Apply at the drip line of trees and berries. Work in gently.
