Bury a banana peel 1" down at the base of flower or vegetable plants. The potassium will feed them and help fight off diseases. ***Used banana peels, egg shells, coffee grounds and crushed Tums with calcium and a sprinkle of Epson Salts in the hole when planting tomatoes; they love the magnesium. We also plant a cracked hard-boiled egg 6" down in Cuke mounds, planted for summer harvest, too!
