Milk bath miracle does it again!
Advertisements [?]
Returned home after my extended absence to some MIGHTY pitiful tomato plants. Short, spindly and generally pathetic. Immediately gave them Lyric's milk bath (approx. 1/2c non-fat dry milk to one gallon lukewarm water for anyone who somehow missed her most-popular-in-Gardening-Forum-ever thread) and VOILA! One week later, they are taking off like gangbusters.

Amusingly, I also returned to two unexpected tomato plants-- growing under the tree in the front yard in amongst the flowers. Must have seeded from last year's dropped fruit (my containers are quite nearby). Amusingly, they were doing as well in so-so soil w/no extra fertilizer as my babied in-container plants. Decided to let them stay as I am hoping that at least will turn out to be a Black Cherry as I was not able to get one this year and included them in the milk bathing.

Thanks again, Lyric for sharing this most wondrous tomato elixir. :applause:
