Container vegetable gardening can be a challenge come mid August. This is how I use Epsom Salt and chemical fertilizers to feed container vegetables. You can substitute fish emulsion or other organic water soluble fertilizers if you wish. I explain why I use these products in mid August. My goal is to get the container soil filled with what the plants needs so the can make it into late September.

    I now have Weeds on my property in the garden section. Then I 6ft tall. Some would wonder how come weeds will grow without any care other than the wood chips I put in that area and also the compost. But Tomatoes corn require all this fuss to grow it. Interesting

    I am so glad that you stress the truth about chemical fertlilizer . I am sure that you have suffered a lot of backlash from others who have channels here on YouTube.

    okay Gary – I have been vegtable gardening for 25 years or more. Always successful. Always had a great garden to harvest. Always had to give stuff away. This is my 4th year at a new location. Very successful here until this year. Compost, egg and banana grinded (as per your instructions) epsom salts and composted manure. That's all I have put in my garden. 12 tomato plants – 2 pkgs of bean seeds – literally got ONE tomato TOTAL – which we ate tonight with a bacon and tomato sandwich ( I always got 25 tomatoes per plant) no Romano tomatoes, no sweet million tomatoes, no beefstake tomatoes, NOTHING!! and one meal from the beans. All tomato plants literally died and the bean leaves were decimated with holes on the leafs therefore did not get to grow to full potential. Now I am in zone 5 the only thing that I can see that has changed was that the rain never stopped all Spring and Summer and not so much sun it was unbelievable. What did I do wrong this year – cannot understand it. Pulled out all 12 the tomato plants (which did not grow at all) roots and plants were the same size as when planted in late May. Around the veggie garden my perennial vines Englewood vines were decimated by some kind of bug – tiny holes in the leaves have been decimated by something that is eating the leaves (tiny tiny holes on all the leaves). The local garden centre said that I was putting too much stuff into the soil. How is that possible? Please help Gary – it is a long time to wait for another successful garden year and I am not getting any younger. I truly missed out this year on getting fresh produce and I don't want to make the same mistake next year. Thanks and Regards – Debbie.
