Oh, the potato freezer burn. Those poor little tops. They will of course come back nice and strong. I always knew if I chose to plant them early that I would accept the possibility of them being freezer burned back. Then wait for them to grow again. So far, it appears to me that it take a lot to kill anything with a bulb, tuber, or rhizome of sorts. While the tops look horrid there is still plenty of healthy, vibrant under growth leaves.
Now those peppers and eggplant. Not of the rhizome family sad to say.
Anyhow, yesterday we purchased general purpose non-scary 10-10-10 fertilizer. (Ingredients being poultry poo, alfalfa meal, and several mineral additions etc) All along we have been really winging all of this. Have yet to bother to soil test anything. There is an abundance of leviathan earthworms that spring from the soil. I take it as indication of overall soil health. Things grow well enough considering its heavy. Albeit double-dug, worked, cultivated, aerated like a mad man.
