Water Your Tomato Plant Roots

Something my Dad taught me…simple, yet effective…

Cut off the bottoms of your 20 ounce soda bottles, or any plastic bottle around that size, and stick the neck of the bottle directly into the soil at the base of your tomato plants.

When you go to water your garden, water all of your plants as you normally would, but do not spray your tomato plants with the hose.  This can cause the plants to rot and you will most likely start to see brown spots all over the stalks and leaves of the tomato plants.  And eventually your tomatoes will have them too!  Oh no!

Avoid this by watering directly into the plastic bottle and essentially just watering the roots of the plants.  Your tomatoes will be absolutely beautiful, and weed management will be minimal since they’ll all be parched!
