Subject: re: Farmer John

It would not be fair. I remember how hard it was to grow tomatoes in Texas. Here we've seen kids throw the seeds from their plates onto the ground and plants bearing tomatoes grow up among the weeds. They say the soil here is actually pretty poor until you enrich it, so it probably has a lot to do with the climate (never more than 90 degrees here in the mountains, solid rain from June to November). You probably know this already, but from the sounds of it your plants may not have enough nutrients. Unlike John, I know little of planting but I have learned the hard way that there is no magic to gardens and livestock. They need food to eat before they produce food for you. Tomatoes require a lot of water and probably do better with some acid in the soil. You might also try a lot more organic fertilizer.
