Thanks for the advice, I will go to the garden center tomorrow! One good thing is those little buggers are growing! Just gotta get them good and strong now.
No, that's totally different from chelated iron. It would take many many years for scrap iron to eventually break down with very little value to enter a plants root system. Chelated iron for vegetation breaks down immediately and enters the plant system within 72 hours on the average.

Thanks wit-nit, but it was just a joke (hence the winkie face next to it).

Don't feel bad that you didn't get it - sometimes I'm the only one who gets my quirky sense of humor! You wouldn't believe how many times I cracked what I thought was a funny joke, only to be looking at a room full of blank stares!

I very much appreciate your responses - thanks again!
