Using Natural Blood Meal on Tomato Plants

Using Natural Blood Meal on our tomato plants!

I've never really been interested in using plant food in the garden.  I always thought of it as the easy way out.

That also could explain why my gardens haven't done their best in the past!

Sometimes you need a little help & I got it unexpectedly this year.  One day, our neighbor brought over a bag of plant food.  He used it in his garden in the past & suggested we use it on ours.

Up until this point, our tomatoes were kind of struggling.  We had started them from seeds super late & they were still super small when we put them in the garden.

Once the tomatoes were in the garden, we had quite a few that were starting to struggle.  Instead of growing, they started to look like they were going to die.  We even replaced a few plants that did end up dying.

So when our neighbor brought over the plant food, I was ready to try anything.

I placed a small spoonful of the Natural Blood Meal around each tomato plant.  Since it was hot outside that day, I waited until the evening to water everything in.

Then I started seeing results.  I wish I had before & after pictures because the results were absolutely amazing!  It's been about 3 or 4 weeks since I applied the plant food & the tomatoes have grew so fast!

This was one tomato that had basically a stick stem & look at it now!  It came back from the (almost) dead!

I've never had tomato plants this big, let alone this early in the growing season!  I think it's a combination of planting in actual soil & adding Natural Blood Meal to the plants.  Whatever it is, the tomatoes are doing great!

I love it when the garden does well & this year is off to a fantastic start!  I hope it continues in the right direction!
