Another long overdue good idea - improve your tomatoes' health with a Compost Basket

Build a Compost Basket next to tomato plants





Right in your garden beds build a compost basket; a chicken wire basket filled with dry grass, green grass, chopped up vegetable waste and good top soil.   Water it.  Your tomatoes will love you for this idea.  They will have larger clusters of tomatoes and ripen quicker on the vine.


The big advantage is - when you water or it rains, all that soil health you are generating while making compost moves into your tomato's root system.  This is God's organic composting process at work, which grows your health and required no money.

  1. Hi my name is Stephanie and a patient of mine shared some of your Salmon River Native Heritage Squash/Pumpkin seeds with me not too long ago. I love what you are doing and your mission to feed the world! Me, I'm an amature gardener. In fact this is my first year getting serious about it. I live in Puyallup and have heard y'all are occasionally at the fair. I'm working on getting my compost started. I think my garden is in some need of nutrients because it's not growing or producing how I would like.
