Farm stands are cheaper and easier than gardens . Why is it that I've had a garden for the past 50 yrs I ask myself every spring .

I must have REAL issues. I have 14 tomato plants.

Seek help!?

@farmboy2017 I'm talking up a storm to these plants!

@SaucyCheryl I had a lady tell me her grandmother took a broom and 'beat' the tomatoes. Apparently it simulates the stimulation of wind and benefits plant growth.

@farmboy2017 I'm not sure I trust myself enough to do that. I fear for the plants.

@SaucyCheryl ?

@farmboy2017 I recently heard about "spanking" your tomatoes. It was not hard of course, didn't want to cause any damage but the writer said that it help pollinate the blooms. He said when there were blooms on the plants to gently "spank" them with something like rolled newspaper, being careful not to hit hard enough to knock blooms loose. It was suppose to help if you were having significant numbers of blooms not setting on tomatoes. Never tried it enough to tell you if it really worked.

@DotLewis I've read than an electric toothbrush is an effective tool for pollination. Don't know if it works??

@farmboy2017 plant abuse! Call the garden cops, @skotlandskye

@farmboy2017 Kinky

@MissKathleen I don't know, I'm thinking the tomatoes might enjoy the electric toothbrush. ?

Welcome to my world, I have 24 tomato plants, 24 potato plants, 24 corn, 600 garlic, 18 lavender, 36 peppers. Hmm, maybe you are the relatively sane one here. smile009.gif

@kenriley Wow. I feel so much saner now. What are you gonna do with all those tomatoes?

@kenriley I was hoping for salsa and tomato sauce, but I suppose pummelling people (certain people) would be therapeutic. Lol.

@SaucyCheryl Well, they should be very productive for you then.

@SaucyCheryl, @DotLewis Sounds like an anger management program. Spank the tomatoes!

@AstralSmoke Maybe I should try it, since I don't have bail money. Just sayin.


Boy ain't that the truth
