Came across an interesting article. The man uses a Native American idea to produce bountiful tomato harvest.
Warning: This method may not be foreveryone's idea of a good thing.

I guess it makes sense in a way. The Native Americans would bury a fish (or parts thereof) when they planted corn. Maybe tomatoes are "meat eaters" since they are heavy-feeders. Shrug! Rolling on the floor laughing I'll give it a try next gardening season.

We used fish emulsion one year for our tomatoes... some critter dug up our tomato plants trying to find that fish. Hilarious! We'll have plenty of rabbit and chicken leavings to use for fertilizer this year.

Tomatoes are heavy feeders. I have used various fish solutions myself. When my husband used to bring home fish from fishing we would clean and eat it. All the heads and guts and whatever got buried in the garden to enrich the soil.
