Oh yeah, tomatoes are one of the closest
things you'll find to weeds
I am pulling out HUNDREDS of thier volunteers
If any of you lived closer to me, you'd
NEVER HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER TOMATO plant
AS YOU LIVED!!!!
I had told this story along time ago...
but it relates here...
My dad was sick and couldn't put in the normal
100+ tomato plants
one year, but I wanted them to have a garden... so I came up with a bunch of buckets from my friends pizzaria and drilled holes in them and planted tomatoes...**they love
fresh picked tomatoes* and grew some lettuce and some peas too...
Well, my mother had a planter bench, the one's with one seat on either end.. and I decided to put two plants
there she bought that were already huge.. Got the first one in, no problem...
and went for the second one, and something happened and it slipped and I went to grab it,
and snapped off in my hand... **I felt really bad*
cause most of it was in my hand, not still planted...
But I thought hey, I know they root from the stems, give it a try.....**You know me, always experimenting**, so I mixed up some fertilizer solution, (Schultz Plus 10~60~10) gave it a good dose it...in the soil, on the leaves that were left on the plant
in the pot/container..
Then I took the one that snapped off.. and stuck it back into another pot/container, and gave it a good dose of the stuff... also on both a good foliar feeding...told my mother to do that for
every day for 3 days.. ***The mixture is not full strength and the dirt is always moist before putting on the plant
But it lived, both lived, both went on to produce
to very nice tomatoes.. and we were tickled pink to get something that year...
