    It’s a recipe from Pinterest.

    1 gallon water
    1.5 tbsp epsom salt
    1.5 tsp. Baking soda
    .25-.50 tsp ammonia.
    Mix together water plants and boom it worked great.
    We used .5 of ammonia this time but will cut it back to .25 when the summer heat turns on.

    :lol: You two are so cute!

    I have to admit that Seeds tomato looks pretty good. I'm impressed that you started it from seed in the ground and it's that big already.

    Thanks for the toaster incentive Major.
    Golly, I'll have to get the house 'lectrified if I win it!
    The prospect is so exciting!

    Took a pic of one of the NYers today...they won the race in the garden to produce the first tomato. They seem to be catching up to some of the other kinds of tomatoes as well. See the little tomato? Oh...and BTW...this tomato hasn't had any fertilizer at all except a little epsom salts.
