  1. Powdered milk…never would have thought about that…and its way cheaper
    than the calcium additives (organic) that you get at the big box store.
    I’m trying the single stem method this year…and definitely stocked up on
    powdered milk! (get extra Epsom salt and take an Epsom salt bath when you
    are done for any tired or sore muscles!)

    Nice video and tips!

  8. Just happened upon this video from suggestions from YouTube: The recipe was
    kinda strange but I can see the logic. Sugar helps cell structure and feeds
    bacteria that makes organic stuff available to plants, too much can be a
    bad thing.

    I just dug up a spot in my lawn to start six tomatoes, after removing the
    roots, the topsoil was only 4 inches deep LOL. Dumped some left over
    potting soil in it and worm castings along with Fish derived bonemeal for
    calcium. I am planning to use some chemical fertilizer because the soil is
    bad and will require some time before organic methods are sustainable.
    (Just wanted to share my thoughts)

    I’m interested in the book you mentioned. Is it available from Amazon?

  9. Love the video, very informative. I usually plant marigolds on the outside
    but will plant inside now. What do you know about eggshells and calcium?
    Also, would you know of a homemade fertilizer for blooms to yield larger
    tomatoes? Would one use something high in phosphorus and/or potassium?
    Thanks again!!

  10. The sugar will help the micronutrients thrive. Great recipe!

    I’m not sure if I missed it – but do you have to keep fertilizing the
    plants throughout the season if you have that mixture in the bottom of the
    hole, is there a risk of over fertilizing if you do? 

  12. Great Video,Thanks For The Tips!

  13. dangit i just threw away a bag of dried milk literally today….time to

    loved the video. i am a second year gardener. and omg i planted wayyy to
    much last year. lol.but any who, i liked the person on the other end asking
    the questions, because they were exactly what i was asking myself. so i
    love the video and learned alot from the pollen to help the tomatoes to the
    mixsture you made. just great. keep the videos coming

    Love watching your videos. Thanks for the tips. I’ll have to try the dry
    milk this year. I too, had a problem with blossom end rot in the past.

  18. great video guys! Wish you had a follow up video to see your mater plants
    with fruit.

  19. love the beds thanks

  20. Thank you, learned a lot

  21. Great video. Thanks for all the tips.

  22. Terrific video. However, I believe tomatoes are self pollinating and don’t
    particularly need bees. That said, we need the bees for pollination in the
    rest of the garden and planting the flowers is a great idea. Thanks so
    much for your wonderful video..

  23. thanks lynn, i think you are very straight forward, very to the point and
    doesn’t wastes viewers’ time. i’ve enjoyed watching this video and i must
    say that it is very well presented. keep up the good work.

  24. If I use Splenda instead of sugar, will my tomatoes be lower calorie? :-)
