    you can also add powered milk to give the tomatoe plant some calcium or add some egg shells around the bottom of the plant.

    @Patti I live in the Tampa Bay area. I broke ground on a new garden this year 50x 25ft. The soil is mostly sand and I was able to get a couple 100lbs of manure into it.

    My question is what would be a good plant to act as a green fertilizer once the garden is done for the year. Also, is it a good idea to add vermiculite and perlite to loosen and aerate the soil?

    Great channel!

    I was taught to plant the tomato with a teaspoon of epsom salt. It’s supposed to make the tomato taste sweeter. Have you heard of that? Is it an old wives tale?

    12′ awesome. You must have tall cages. Go girl.

    I’ve never had a bug problem in my tomato area. I dunno whether my area is bug free naturally or if I’m just one lucky gardener. But then again my tomatoes grow like triffids and would probably beat the heck outa any bugs.

    Toe-may-toe gangz reprezentin!! :)

  • OrganicTexas says:

    No- it’s legit. Epsom salt also prevents the blossom end rot. Other good addition is liquid seaweed and compost tea.

  • lefty0mtl says:

    You guys are an inspiration!!! Thanks for the great info!

  • JJolaine says:

    Wow! I never knew the “deep” planting method for them. Thanks! Keep the tips comin’!

  • VogonPoet81 says:

    I reaf that even if the plant isnt super tall to build a trench for it, but that seems to negate the deep hole for the plant. Which is better?

  • Supralobe says:

    Very nice, I really like the idea of companion planting.

    Do you use a trellis for keeping the trenched tomato plant upright?

  • Marcus1974 says:

    Nice to learn from you Patti, you have a really nice face to look at…  😀

  • ingesumadre says:

  • nappychef35 says:

    Patti thanks for posting this video. I wish I had saw it three days ago, before I finished transferring a large plant to Topsi Tervy pot that killed my large plant. Question: how do you do that 3D text effect in your closing credits? What’s the program and feature? Thanks and check out my channel for some good recipes that use fresh veggies.
