How often do mature plants need fertilizer?
One the flowers are set, what is more important if N is cut back. Should we be looking for the N and K to be higher? How much higher?
can I use my 10-10-10 fertilizer even though the bag has been opened for 3 years!
Is the morning the only time we should fertilize or can we fertilizer late afternoon?
Does fertilizer go bad?
what about rooting the suckers for new plant?
I have a cherry tomato plant growing. How can I tell if it is determinate or indeterminate and if I should prune the extra branches?
If I use compost how do I know what the percentage of NPK is
I find that the plants in Home Depot and Lowes have much greener leaves than the plants i start from seed even though I buy the seeds from good seed companies. Is it because they use much more fertilizer? Is it the nitrogen that causes the deep green leaves? Is the deep green a good trait to have?

with indeterminant tomatoes when do you remove it? the plant looks ok but not fruiting. in fact we got very few tomatoes. there were little green bugs at the tips. thinking they ate the flowers
can you buy an at-home test for pH?
I have a very unusual question. we have a well with heavy iron content and also an aireator. When we drain the aireator there is some sludge at the bottom with a rusty look to it. can this ever be applied to any plants to provide minerals or other nutrients?
thanks for another great presentation!
If you get tomato wilt or fungus due to excessive rain, is it best to get rid of the whole plant or what do you recommend for treatment? I trimmed off visible white fungus infected leaves and used neem oil but the new leaves that grew had the same fungus. What do you recommend?
when is compost exhausted
can you get fruit earlier with blossom set
if using something like rabbit, chicken, goat poop from animals you have at home, what is the ratio of that to dirt you should use?
I have rooted suckers!
I actually rooted the suckers, i put them in water and eventually you will see roots grow but you have to change the water every so often, then I planted them in soil. So far its growing.
Do you want to push away the mulch when you apply the fertilizer or can you put it on top & water in
are there any animals poop we absolutely shouldn't use?
I've had zero success with tomatoes. which might be easiest?
For indeterminates such as superset 100 and purple cherokee, I found that after a while they don’t fruit as much. Is it due to lack of fertilization
Is this class for educational time only?
If you planted tomatoes at the wrong time, can you keep the vines, or should you start all over again? Only one of many produced fruit.
When we water plants using drip irrigation system - is it important to let the soil dry in-between
I get a lot of lizards, anoles, geckos which poop on my plants. Is the poop bad for my vegetable plants?
I have blossom end-rot bell peppers, can I use crashed eggshells to fix a problem?
can you post your email? thank you so much. very informative.
what do you think about digging holes, throwing your compost in it and planting your plant a couple feet above it?
My tomatoes developed blossom end rot - Was told that it is due to their inability to take in Calcium - why does that happen and how can we avoid it?
My biggest problem with my vegetable garden in a raised bed is rabbits. I put a green netting fence around some of it but i can’t put it around anything. Is there any way to deal with rabbits? I put soap around the plants, sliced chillies and garlic and onions but nothing seems to deter the rabbits. They eat all my broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spring onions, garlic shoots, edamame etc.
Around everything (typo above)
will you recommend a few spinach varieties? what is the hardiest, most nutritious spinach variety to grow?
For compost, I’ve read that you shouldn’t add citrus peel. But i saw another article showing how oranges broke down and became great compost.
how can I reuse my container soil? certain plants cannot be planted in succession. how do I find out what those plants are?
Thank you this was great - see you next week:)
