[Return to Topics]

If your tomatoes are being affected with disease, try this:

1 part skim milk
9 parts water

Combine and mist spray the plants every couple of days starting in early summer.


To ward of tomatoe diseases, try this on new plants and seedlings:

1 cup of compost
1/2 cup plus 1/4 cup of powdered nonfat milk
1/2 cup Epsom salts

Mix the compost and 1/2 cup of the powered milk, and the Epsom salts together, sprinkle a handful of the mix into each planting hole. Then sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of powdered milk on top of the soil after planting. Repeat every few weeks throughout the season. Cureall for all tomatoe diseases.

Will this recipe work for curled leaves? My other plants look great but one row of tomatoes has the curled leaves, will this spread to other plants such as squash, beets, lettuce? I also would like to know if epsom salts sprinkled on the ground would help to keep the rabbits out? If not would moth balls work? Thanks for any help.

After Tomatoe blooms fall off, there is a brown spot on that part of the tomatoe, I think it's called bloom rot.
How is this prevented?? Please advise..

I only have two plants, planted in an Earth Box.

They are full of blooms now and have two green tomatoes on one of these plants--(Celebrity.

I noticed today that some of the leaves on both plants have "curled up" and look dry. They have been watered according to the directions on the Earth Box.

Do you have any idea what causes this condition?

I enjoyed your cure-all advice.

Thanks,

Ernie Brown

The leaves on my tomatoe plants are turning yellow, sometimes brown, eventually wilt and fall off. How can this be treated?
