What's in YOUR tomato?: soil and foliage amendments
I spent some time this evening reading across the web and considering the vitrolic and sometimes deadly serious positions taken by some regarding what absolutely, positively has to be in the soil for your foods to be safe and delicious. Having enjoyed all I could there, it was on to revieing how many different commercial mixtures dealers would have you buy. Everything from sea animal shells, to kelp, mineral mizes, special liquid concentrates of every kind and description,and far, far more. This led to some equally curious reading wherein the home remedies and conglomerations fro cider vinergar, molasses, and more are poured or sprayed. I won't even get into the rare herbs stuffed into a cows horn and buried under the light of the moon in the proper phase. Why folks, purty soon we could have a million dollar super mater with all the special kinds of mater juice being sprayed and poured on. And here I find myself having trouble just keeping the local neighbor's Siamese cat planting other than veggies in the raised beds. Maybe I need to reconsider, this could be something big!Would take a catchy name to market that stuff though. Seriously now folks, what magic amemdment or spray assures your tomato success?
