Milorganite and tomatoes

Before we all panic let me preface the post with this: I do NOT use milorganite on the tomatoes lol.. My worry is that I do use it on the grass and I question as to whether it's safe to mulch the tomatoes with the clippings, a week after application.. Sparingly of course as they don't need much N these days..

I would say it's probably alright, I think it's sterilized. More information in the link below and you can decide for yourself.

Yeah given all the controversy about it its one decision you'll have to make for yourself. Personally I'd compost the grass clippings with lots of other stuff before using it around food crops but that's just my opinion.
