Nice info. One way you can deep water your garden plants is to take quart or gallon plastic milk jugs, poke rows of holes in with a small nail, then bury them to cap level between your garden rows spacing them so at least 4 plants are close by. Fill with water as needed, close caps so no evaporation and your plants have the deep beneficial moisture that promotes healthy roots but does not over water. Earthworms also love the moist not drowned soil as well.

They're not heirlooms, but I have 3 tomato plants and 3 jalapenos. I'm looking forward to them.

Thank you! My tomato plants are just reaching a foot tall now and I was wondering what to do next. I planted Black Russian, St Pierre, Tigerella and Butcher Blood. I really hope I don't get pests and mildews! Is it safe to use Bio soap sprays on vegetables?

My Doctor just took me off tomato's. It promotes infection in the body. Now that I can't have them, I crave them. Hopefully I can start on them soon and will try the heirloom.
