  • Tomato trouble shooting

    We cannot control the weather but we can control what our tomatoes eat, so to speak. At planting time, we prepare the soil with composted hen manure and a little organic fertilizer; we also mulch around the plants immediately in order to moderate soil moisture and to prevent the spread of soil-borne diseases.   

    This year our work at building healthy soil has paid off because the tomatoes are thriving. Some folks have not been as lucky as the rain poured down earlier in the season.
