    I'm doing Roma tomatoes in buckets this year.* Some friends convinced me that this is the way to go.* I chose Romas cuz I thought they wouldn't be too heavy.
    Wish me luck!

    Hi Gorgeous Red,

    Your tomatoes should do just fine with lots of sun, some organic fertilizer and good drainage.*

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the well-wishes, Newt.......does manure tea count as organic?* LOL* That's what I've been using for years ... it's easy to make and so far it's free!* Wish I could run my car on it* :P

    Yes, manure tea is definitely organic.* It's also great for using as a foliar spray.* Have you tried compost tea too?

    You are so very welcome!* The compost tea is great as a foliar spray, especially if you see some pests.
