Re: Popular Tomato Gardening Questions & Answers
Hello folks and tomato gardening friends!
In today?s post, I?ll answer some questions I?ve recieved recently about growing tomatoes via email from a fellow reader. Here are the questions:
I purchased your tomato guide yesterday
and found some very useful
1. You talk about buying a certain compost/fertiliser. Is it fine
for me to
2. I also feed my tomatoes with a combination of blood and bone
3. Unfortunately I don?t have a greenhouse. Do you recommend I grow
I looking forward to your response on the above queries.
Let me answer your questions to the best of my tomato ability :)
1. Making your own fertilizer:
Hmm - I have never made my own fertilizer, and I know my
So, I cannot give you any specific advice here, except to be careful to
Thats why the straw is there, you have to mix the straw with the manuer
This is a lot of variables already, not counting the fact that a lot of
However ? Somewhere, somehow, someone had to be the first to come up with this brilliant idea of fertilizer for tomatoes and make it themselves from scratch?
So I see no harm in doing it :) As long as it is not acidic in the end.
The other thing I would add is to make sure the animals were fed with real food :) ?not something terrible? like their own feces(quite common practice in todays? live-stock mass production farms)
I dont have any organic cows to give you, unfortunetely :( Just my book.
2. Anything you feed your tomatoes is pretty good, sulphate is definitely good.
I would recommend you feed this to your tomatoes once or twice per week, with the watering. In hot temperatures, you can definitely feed them more.
Fertilizers do wonders for tomatoes, however, they often do not have enough vitamins to keep the tomatoes well fed the entire time they are growing, therefore it is wise to water them every week with ?suppliment? foods like you are doing.
Don?t be afraid to feed them too much, more often than not, people don?t feed them enough.
3. Greenhouse question.
I highly recomend you DO get a greenhouse. Or make one yourself, Foil Tunnel green-houses are extremely easy to make.
If you do grow them outdoors, it should be ?okay? if you live in a warmer climate, if you live in a colder climate, you may experience difficulties with growing them.
I recommend non-wooden stakes, as wood does absorb moisture, is less sterile, and can sometimes catapult an invasion of disease from this moisture.

Storyline: A boar, fierce rushing in the sylvan war, Plough'd half his thigh ; I saw, I saw the seal. And wild with transport had reveal'd the wound ; But ere I spoke, he rose, and check'd the sound. Then, daughter, haste away ! and if a lie Flow from this tongue, then let thy servant die I " To whom with dubious joy the queen replies : " Wise is thy soul, but errors seize the wise ; The works of gods what mortal can survey ? Who knows their motives, who shall trace their way ' But learn we instant how the suitors trod The paths of death, by man, or by a god." Thus speaks the queen, and no reply attends. But with alternate joy and fear descends ; At every step debates her lord to prove ; Or, rushing to his arms, confess her love ! Then gliding through the marble valves, in state Opposed, before the shining sire she sate. The monarch, by a column high enthroned. His eye withdrew, and fix'd it on the ground ; Curious to hear his queen the silence break : Amazed she sate, and impotent to speak ; O'er all the man her eyes she rolls in vain. Now hopes, now fears, now knows, then doubts again. At length Telemachus : " Oh, who can iind A woman like Penelope unkind ? Why thus in silence ? why with winning charms Thus slow to fly with rapture to his arms 'i Stubborn the breast that with no transport glows, When twice ten years are pass'd of mighty woe"* ; To softness lost, to spousal love unknown, The gods have formed that rigid heart of stone !
