Hardiness Zone: 7a

When you plant, they need some blood meal. Then as the season goes on and blossoms show up, quickly get the espom salts into the soil. Buy the package and read the directions on it for tomatoes. The soil needs magnesium sulfate (ES) to make good blossoms. Not just tomatoes, all things that blossoms are better with ES.
At the end of the growing season, after I have removed the plants from the garden, I scatter a bale of straw on top of the garden and set it on fire. It sterilizes the soil so this year's diseases won't affect next year's plants.
