In an article on "Fertilizing Tomatoes", Epson Salt is not mentioned. Is this NOT a recommended fertilizer for tomatoes? ?

It depends on who you ask. Some growers swear by it. I don't use it myself, so I can't comment on it either way. I use bone and blood meal, crushed eggshells, and a low number organic tomato fertilizer in the holes when I plant my tomatoes, and side dress with the fertilizer again when the plants start fruiting. This works for me. I'd say you need to find what works for you. Be careful with high number fertilizers, though. Fertilizers high in nitrogen will give you beautiful, leafy plants but few fruit.
