Tom wants the biggest tomatoes on the block. Nothing else will do.
I'm not sure who he thinks he's competing with since very few people actually grow anything in our suburban neighborhood. Certainly not to the extent that we do! But there it is.
He's a Pinterest man.
And he's coming up with all sorts of ideas to implement.
One of which are these dang fish heads. Gross. I know.
But it's an organic fertilizer and tomatoes are heavy feeders that need lots of fertilizer. He's been reading about how fish heads (all leftover fish parts actually) paired with aspirin and a few other amendments will grow the most stupendous tomatoes ever.
He also used some leftover PVC tubing from a drain project to make these unique watering tubes that feed our tomatoes using compost.
Combining these techniques will grow the biggest and best tomatoes possible. The techniques outlined here will work with all types of tomatoes, so it never hurts to try new varieties!
We hope you're game and keep your sense of humor while following us!
