Timely Garden Tip . 1

Frederike taught us this trick for tomatoes that she says everyone in Germany uses. Wash and fill an empty wine bottle with water, upend it and drive the neck down into the soil close to a tomato plant. The bottle will drain slowly over the course of a week or so automatically irrigating the plant with warm water. We're experimenting and will report back. If it works, we may do the whole garden. I figure about 10 cases of Chateau Lafitte and we're covered. Now what if you used a dilute solution of MiracleGro? Intravenous steroids?
