But.....chemical fertilizers can destroy beneficial microorganisms in the soil and take away that nice crumbly texture of the soil. Another problem...these types of fertilizers dissolve easily in water and go right down into the soil where they pollute the ground water. So basically it goes from bad to worse.
And to answer your question, no, I won't use chemical fertilizers this year. Despite the temptation to grow bigger and badder tomatoes from using them. I'm going to look into some organic options instead.
