Save money with tip-top tomatoes

EVERYONE is feeling the pinch these days, and looking to save a few pennies.

Many are growing tomatoes in their gardens to help. around now is the time to feed them, and plant feed can be expensive.

I’d like to share a way to nourish your tomatoes told to me many years ago by an old farmer, that I have used successfully for many years.

Just collect stinging nettles, wearing gloves of course, and soak for a few days, then give the tomatoes a weekly drink of the liquid (it’s all free) and the tomatoes are wonderful.
