10 Tips for More Tomatoes -- I get high yields by using black plastic on the ground, and watering only once (4-5 hours on a drip system) every 10-14 days. This puts the plant into "starvation" mode and it will put all its energy into fruit production (for continuing its species) instead of foliage. Your plants will be LOADED with tomatoes. Fertilize only once before planting, and no more. I guarantee you will have lots of tomatoes.
Homemade Weed Killer 1 gallon of white vinegar, 1/2 cup salt, Liquid dish soap (any brand), Empty spray bottle. Put salt in the empty spray bottle and fill it the rest of the way up with white vinegar. Add a squirt of liquid dish soap. This solution works best if you use it on a hot day. Spray it on the weeds in the morning, and as it heats up it will do its work. by ladylynne213
