Use Shredded Paper Under Tomato Plants

While reading uses for newspaper, I thought I would share an idea given to me by a friend a couple of years ago. Putting shredded paper around your tomato plants helps keep tomatoes off the ground so they don't rot. Works really well and shredded paper just gets tilled into ground every year and decomposes in time.

If you have red paper to use, all the better. Red reflects upwards and promotes the tomatoes' growth. (05/29/2008)
