tomato disease prevention methods
The last 2 years I grew my tomatoes in oak barrels on my deck, because I was fed up with fighting off bindweed. The first time I got early blight and the second year I had blossom end rot. I know it wasn't real intelligent to try to grow tomatoes in the same soil 2 years in a row, but I did.
So this year, I dumped the soil in the area where I have sowed my lawn and have built a raised bed garden loaded with garden soil I purchased, some sphagum peat moss and some manure, plus threw in a few dozen earthworms.
I plan to plant my tomatoes in the new raised bed, but am not sure what to grow in the barrels to counteract the problems I had, I also doused the barrels with fungicide and would like to still use them as they add a very nice look to my deck
